Maine Sailing Yacht Charters to Benefit Puffins
April 16, 2015
This summer, Churchill Yacht Partners’ 116’ sailing yacht Whisper will be donating a portion of the season’s sales to Project Puffin, an organization that protects the rare seabirds and their historic nesting islands off the coast of Maine. Started by the National Audubon Society in 1973, the project is designed to restore the puffin population and educate people on the plethora of environmental issues threatening the seabird.
New England is a prime destination for chartering which is largely due to the fact that people love its scenic charm and natural allure,” said Whisper’s Charter Manager at Churchill Yachts, Kaisa Pace. “If we don’t protect the region’s environment and its wildlife, then there is no saying what will happen to its beautiful coastline. By supporting Project Puffin, Whisper is taking its first step in giving back to the region we all love so much.”
Whisper will be available for bookings in the New England Region through early September. The luxury yacht charters from $60,000 per week (plus APA expenses) and will donate 1% of all the season’s charter sales to Project Puffin.
