Sailing yacht ‘Whisper’ contributes a portion of charter fees to Project Puffin

This summer, Churchill Yacht Partners’ 35.4m sailing yacht, Whisper, will be giving back to the New England region in which she charters by donating a portion of her season’s sales to Project Puffin, an organisation that protects the rare seabirds and their historic nesting islands off the coast of Maine, New England.

Project Puffin was started by the National Audubon Society in 1973 in order to restore the puffin population, and educate people on the plethora of environmental issues that are threatening the seabird, which could in turn lead to their endangerment.

Kaisa Pace, charter manager at Churchill Yacht Partners commented, “New England is a prime destination for chartering, which is largely due to the fact that people love its scenic charm and natural allure. 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.” 

Designed by Ted Hood and Ted Fontaine, Whisper is a sailing yacht, sleeping six guests across three staterooms. She boasts a traditional teak interior with intricate inlays and carvings, alongside her modern entertainment systems and water toys, including a 4.5m motorboat, two kayaks, two paddleboards, a wakeboard, water skis and snorkel gear for her guests to enjoy.

This summer, she will be participating in the 2015 Newport Charter Yacht Show from 22nd to 25th June, after which she will return to charter in the New England area from early September. 

The luxury yacht charters from $60,000 per week, plus advanced provisioning allowance (APA) expenses, and will donate one percent of all the season’s charter sales to Project Puffin.
