Narragansett / Newport, Rhode Island 3-D Nautical Wood Chart, Large, 24.5" x 31"
If feeling the wind on your face as you sail through a yacht-filled harbor is blissful to you, Newport, Rhode Island, is going to be your happy place. As the host site of America’s Cup for many years, this harbor is renowned for its sailing regattas and high-end housing. The coastal resort town of Narragansett is just a few miles away, yet worlds apart. It offers a relaxed, laid-back sophistication and beach vibe. Beauty and elegance are attainable in the Historic Districts of Newport or the The Gansett – home to the University of Rhode Island.
Established in 1639, Newport once enjoyed bustling commerce in its harbor and was the epicenter of the development of modern capitalism. The City by the Sea has long been known for its architecture and resilience. Narragansett, named for the native Narragansett Indians, is a more relaxed version of its larger, commerce-driven neighbor.
The success of the Newport Harbor is owed to the depths of its waters, creating safe passage for ships and tradesmen looking to off-load their goods. These depths are expertly and intricately detailed on the Narragansett/Newport, Rhode Island 3D nautical wood map. The map details are laser-cut into the Baltic birch pieces, perfectly matching the dimensions of the coastline. The pieces are expertly glued together and hand-stained to match the water and accentuate the depths and shallows. The 3D wood map is finished with laser engraved points of interest and a custom wood frame.
Remember the wind in your hair and the beauty of Narragansett and Newport, Rhode Island, with each glance at this nautical wood map.
