Essentials: A List of Items Every Cruiser Needs Onboard

Even as we’re completing interior projects on some of the most gorgeous yachts in New England, we know that these boats will be used to cruise. And for that, you need a checklist of what to bring!

Here’s a handy list of the staples that everyone needs to have onboard, complied by Paula Patterson, a longtime cruiser. Patterson has logged several thousand hours onboard her Able, Tartan, Sabre, Hinckley, and custom-built yachts. She has enjoyed countless hours off the eastern seaboard onboard with her family and pets.

Luckily for us all, Patterson has used her tremendous experience to develop an incredible, comprehensive list of things that you need onboard when you set out on your cruise. Simply print it out before you leave, check off the boxes, and then sail away! Enjoy your August cruises!
