Provisioning a boat for a three-day cruise is a subtle art. You don’t want to over or under provision. 

 

This guide is here to help make the food and beverage requirements of your trip take shape and be a success. 

First of all McQuade’s MarketMystic Market, and a Big Y are all within easy distance of Mystic Seaport Museum, and all offer excellent pre-made meals, that stack well in the refrigerator on the boat. 

 

There are numerous liquor stores around, but Cask and Keg  https://www.casknkegmystic.com is in the same location as McQuade’s Market.

 

The Key Elements are Space, Snacks and Number of Meals.

Space: Boats don’t have kitchens; they have a galley. A boats galley is much smaller than your kitchen at home. Thought must be taken as to where all the Provisions are going to go. Refrigeration space for food is limited. 

Snacks are your friend. Most snacks don’t require refrigeration and are more convenient to life of the go on a sailboat. Having plenty of snacks is key.

Only buy the stuff you and your group eat. No point in throwing everything away when you come back to port.

You have 2 breakfasts, 3 lunches, 2 dinners and plenty of snacks to think about.

When it comes to beverages, think long game in the sun. Lots of water. Go lighter on the alcohol %. One drink on a the water is like two on the land. Cans are better. There is a cooler with ice for drinks. There is a blender aboard the boat.
