Forty 1° North Main Dock

Cruisers with Newport, Rhode Island, on the itinerary have a new, luxury-class destination to aim for. Forty 1° North boasts a first-class marina and waterfront dining venue. The owners say Forty 1° North was specially designed  “to meet the needs of the sophisticated systems in today’s superyachts, offering both seasonal and transient dockage for yachts ranging from 45 to 250 feet. Partners in the Forty 1° North venture include Dorrance Hamilton, George Moore and Peter Borden.

The marina features new floating docks and electric service up to 480 volts, a requirement of the biggest superyachts. Forty 1° North also has a full program of services, including onboard cleaning, VIP launch, washdowns and pump-outs.  Private indoor and outdoor dining is available, along with ship-side dining service.

Dining options deluxe at Forty 1° North

Diners at Forty 1° North have a couple of options.  The Grill at Forty 1° North offers open-air bar and restaurant seating. The restaurant was designed to integrate with a large deck area directly above the pier, so diners can eat al fresco while watching the Newport nautical world.  There is also the more casual Christie’s for breakfast and lunch during the summer, and dinner year-round.

Interestingly, Forty 1° North has four rental suites available for guests, and plans a 24-room luxury boutique hotel for 2009.  Forty 1° North has both seasonal and weekly “Guest Programs” that allow house-charging privileges, dinghy dockage and special events access.  If you’re looking for a little pampering on your Newport stop, have a look at Forty 1° North.
