Our unique Lagoon 450 Flybridge has all the amenities you could want and space to spare. This yacht boasts 4 queen staterooms with 4 full bathrooms and could comfortably host 30 people but is limited by the US Coast Guard regulations to pampering 12 guests. Seating areas include the saloon inside with a front cockpit, rear cockpit, front trampolines, fly-bridge helm seats, and flybridge sun loungers outside. Cruise in spacious luxury as you explore the sights and sounds around you! Bring your own food, beverages (including alcohol), and have control over the unlimited Spotify music throughout the yacht. If you prefer we can help with caterers or a chef for the trip.
Several private areas around the boat allow comfortable and varying views of the surrounding sights. The size of the yacht allows for a calm and smooth ride as you explore all that New York City and the Hudson River foliage has to offer. Trips can include Statue of Liberty and Lower Manhattan as well as scenic mountains up the Hudson River and longer trips to Jersey Shore. Cruising is a smoking-free environment with only vapes allowed. Please only non-marking shoes (white soles), socks, or bare feet onboard. This demise charter requires a master captain with sailing catamaran experience. As this is a demise charter, you have a choice of a qualified master captain with sailing catamaran experience and we recommend either Captain Peter, Captain Brian, Captain Bobby or Captain Kevin. We also have packages for learning how to sail a catamaran.
The final decision in case of cancellation will be made by the captain and/or boat owner.
This boat is amazing!!!! Dont let the pictures fool you. This boat has ALOT of space. We had 10ppl and had plenty more room to go. Clean, comfortable. We had Captain Peter and his aide. They were very punctual, professional and fun. Definately recommend it!! Do the 4hr trip, its worth it.
Awesome day!!! Thank you Captain Pete for a wonderful trip.
Everything was so perfect! Captain Peter and Jenn made this trip seamless! Very accommodating and just the perfect hosts. Don’t hesitate to book with them!!!
Our 4 hour birthday boat trip was absolutely perfect. It could not have been better. The boat itself is amazing: beautiful, large, clean, well-equipped, a real yacht. Peter and Jennifer were perfect hosts: charming, helpful, willing to do anything to accomodate us. We cannot recommend this experience highly enough. You will not be disappointed. What a lovely experience!

We loved the staff! They were amazing and so helpful in insuring we had an excellent and safe trip. Captain Peter helped us board our food and drinks, and there was a cooler and freezer on board as well. The boat itself was very spacious and well kept. Everyone was able to find a spot to hang out, be it out front on the hammock beds with the water below or on the back deck at the table. The ride was incredibly smooth and perfectly comfortable. I would absolutely book again and would recommend this boat and crew to anyone looking for a great time. We were a party of 12 people for 4 hours.
Wonderful time, our first time doing this on a catamaran and it was AMAZING. The Captain recommended a wonderful route, the boat and crew were amazingly fun and helpful and we had a glorious time. Will definitely do again!
The boat ride was great, so relaxing. We had the perfect weather. Our captain and his assistance were helpful, they ran down the rules and had us on our way in mins. Unfortunately, I had a hard time getting to the boating dock so we started 30 mins late in a 2 hour trip, but the Captain did what he could to give us back some of the time we lost. I would recommend this to anyone. I wish we did the 4 hours instead. Boat was nice and spacious, we had 10 people on board for a bach party.
This was an awesome trip! The boat was exactly as the pictures, crew was amazing and super nice. Everything was explained and went very smoothly. We will definitely book them again.
This boat was absolutely amazing and Captain Peter was the best! We will definitely be booking this again in the future :). Can't rave enough!
Captain Peter and Jen were amazing! The boat was as beautiful as the pictures and I had an amazing 25th birthday! 10/10 would recommend :)
This was the best charter we have done to date. The boat was immaculate. Spacious for a group of 12. We were celebrating a myriad of things including birthdays and job promotions. Captain Peter and his first mate Brad were amazing. We can't wait to do it again next summer.
Our family had a wonderful time! Thank you so much to the amazing crew!
The boat was beautiful and the crew even better. Very much looking forward to sailing again!
Captain Peter and Jen were amazing!! The entire trip was absolutely amazing, My friends and I had so much fun! The boat was so clean, safe and beautiful! Such a memorable day! Thank you!
Captain Peter and Jen were amazing!!! You could tell they just wanted everyone to have the best time and have a passion for being on the water. The boat is even more spectacular in person than in the pictures - so many places to lounge with everything you’d ever need. This was such a memorable day.
The entire evening was absolutely wonderful! Captain Peter and Jenn were great at answering all of my questions while in the planning stages. On board everything was clean, safe, and beautiful. We had an amazing time and can’t wait to book again!!!
Amazing Captain and First Mate.
Will definitely do it again !
Second time sailing with Captain Peter - was a great time!
We had an amazing time!
First of all, let me just say how great the crew members are captains are. They are very responsible, always positive and welcoming, and extremely approachable and dare I say, funny. They are very flexible and accommodating. I initially scheduled my event on April 10th but had to push back till April 17th and the communication was very easy and simple. When we were on the boat, they were very hospital and had clear instructions so everyone was on the same page. The boat is beautiful nd clean and it was nice to be out on the deck. Overall, this has been my best experience and I want to thank Amarena and Captain Peter for going above and beyond. They are super chill as well! Will definitely come back again.
Thank you so much for the amazing experience.
Everyone had a great time and made new precious memories on this super enjoyable boat.
We greatly appreciate Captain Peter and Jennifer. They made our first time on a boat fun and informative.
Everyone is looking forward to do it again next season.
Peter and Jennifer were friendly, professional, and very helpful! They have made our experience amazing and enjoyable. Would definitely book them again!
The boat was absolutely gorgeous! The captain and first mate were very nice and accommodating.
Amazing trip thank you both for such a wonderful experience!
Amazing! Pete and Jenn were greaaaaat hosts. Definitely plan on returning.
My group and I loved it. The captain and crew made sure everyone enjoyed themselves, communicated everything every step of the way, and helped us out with anything we needed. 10 out of 10!
We had an AMAZING time! Don't hesitate to book. Captain Pete and wife Jen were such fantastic hosts, and we had a great day.
Only thing I can think of
Rented this boat for my birthday and it was amazing! So much space, super clean, the captain and crew were so helpful and friendly definitely would recommend and definitely will be renting again!!
The Captain and crew mate were amazing!!!!!! Really helpful, response was always quick and helpful. They were accommodating in every way. They made my first boat experience amazing, better then expected.
I had the most AMAZING birthday experience on the Amarena. Captain Peter and his wife Jen, are truly a gem. They made our experience nothing short of amazing. All of my guests are still in awe of the experience and are asking me to re-book so we can sail again. I wouldn't have changed anything about the experience we had. The attentiveness to detail that was displayed through the duration of the trip was great and this was an experience that we will remember for the rest of our lives.
We will definitely be booking again to sail with Captain Peter and Jen. If you are thinking of booking, just do it. I promise you will not regret it.
Thank you again Captain Peter & Jen for such a magical birthday experience. I will forever be grateful.
Beautiful large boat with an amazing crew! Would recommend for a big special occasion or even for a quality day trip with friends and family. So memorable and incredible!
Wow!! I can’t begin to express how absolutely amazing this boat and crew was in making my sister’s surprise 50th birthday experience SPECTACULAR. I would rank the beauty of the boat and quality of the people and experience 5 stars and am so grateful of how accommodating/attentive the team was with my family. I would highly recommend you book with them and I personally plan to tell my colleagues and friends about them. I would love to plan an outing with my leadership team here at some point. :) Thank you x10 for helping to create an unforgettable memory for my family in the midst of what is such a hectic, strange time in our world.
Excellent hosts, truly relaxing and enjoyable time. Hoping to definitely book again in the near future.
Loved this boat . Very nice and the perfect size
Peter & Jenn were great hosts! From the moment we stepped on the boat they were accommodating and pleasant. The boat is just as advertised and well kept. I had the best time celebrating my birthday on their boat! I can’t wait for our next sail!
My cousin's birthday was quickly approaching and she came up with the idea of renting a boat for the day. Welp, it was up to me to execute her wishes. A random Google search brought me to Sailo.com. After filtering out my search, I came across this catamaran. The pictures caught my attention before reading through the posting and it was everything we were looking for. After asking 101 questions we finally booked and was promptly contacted by Captain Peter via text. Communication prior to our arrival was quick and thorough. Upon our arrival to the marina, we were met by Captain Peter and his wife Jennifer. They were both extremely friendly, accommodating and fun. Jennifer was kind enough to give us a tour of the boat. The catamaran was as described in the photos and well maintained. We were able to bring a ton of food, drinks and was allowed to decorate the boat for the celebration. There was plenty of standing and seating space for our 8 guests to lounge around. All of the guests cannot stop raving about the experience and the hospitality of our hosts. We will definitely keep Captain Peter and Jennifer in mind for a future boating experience.
What a great time and experience we all had thank you to Captain peter and his wife wonderful host.. we will be coming back.
OMG! I promise you, I NEVER leave reviews, but this is a MUST!! Peter & Jennifer are really nice people. From the time I got on, until the time I got off. BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL boat! Their pictures don’t lie. Thank you Peter & Jennifer for making my birthday extra special!
We had a great time out on the water celebrating my mother’s birthday! Peter and Jennifer were amazing and the boat was beautiful!
I never write reviews, however Peter and Jennifer gave us an experience of a lifetime, so I had too... Well worth every penny. The Catamaran was well-kept, Clean and Spacious. Sailing down the Hudson, we felt like we were cruising the Caribbean. Highly recommended.
I had such a great time celebrating my birthday with 11 close friends on this boat! It was the perfect thing to do for social distancing. The boat is absolutely beautiful and spacious. Captain Peter and his wife were so nice and accommodating to me & my party. I will definitely recommend this boat to others and look forward to booking another trip in the near future.
We had an amazing time! Peter and his wife were great. Look forward to booking again
This experience was nothing short of AMAZING. Captain Peter and his wife Jennifer are so kind, considerate, patient and accommodating. The Yacht is breath taking and exceeded my expectations. Captain Peter and his wife made us feel right at home. We were able to decorate, have food, play games and have a dance party outside under the sunset. My family and I had a blast!!!!! It’s only been two days since we sailed and everyone keeps talking about how great it was and are ready to do it all over again! Thank you again for your hospitality and sharing your beautiful vessel. There is nothing I would change about that day because it was absolutely perfect! You will definitely see me again :-)

SV Virago is the best yacht to take larger groups out on the waters! She has more deck space than much larger yachts with a smoother, quieter, and very relaxing ride because of being 26 feet wide. We love the feeling of joy she invokes from the minute you step on board. We have been boating for decades and can say without hesitation that SV Virago is our absolute favorite vessel and we know that you will enjoy her just as much as we do!!
We require those that captain our yacht to have catamaran sailing experience and that is why we can highly recommend Captain Peter, Captain, Bobby, Captain Kevin, or Captain Brian. Two of these captains were involved in bring this catamaran safely from Martinique for our enjoyment and are an absolute pleasure to sail with. We know that you will like having them lead your cruise.
Come sail with us and see the world from a completely different perspective!
Usually this boat operates around Alpine, NJ.
New York City looks great from the ground, but that view from the water is something else! Jump aboard a Sailo boat rental from the Big Apple and experience the thrill of the sea - and snap plenty of incredible pictures. Sailing in NYC is a must on your summer bucket list, whether you are visiting or a New Yorker.
It might not be the first thing you think of when finding things to do in New York City, but renting a boat for a full day or just a few hours is a truly memorable experience.
