Description

Enjoy a tour on one of Baltimore’s best attractions. See all the famous Baltimore landmarks from the Inner Harbor, including the National Aquarium, the U.S.S. Constellation, Fort McHenry, the Domino Sugar Plant, and all the marinas of Baltimore’s world-famous harbor. It’s time for some fun in the sun, so come sailing with us!

Feel the wind in your face and the waves under your feet. Nothing connects you to the wind and the water like a sailboat. Take a trip on Baltimore’s most authentic boat ride! Cruise with us from the Inner Harbor all the way out to Fort McHenry for a beautiful and relaxing experience. This is one of the most unique attractions in Baltimore. It’s a great thing to do on a Summer afternoon and also makes a great date night!

The boat is a steel-hulled, junk-rigged ocean cruising schooner designed by noted naval architect Thomas E. Colvin. After many years based in Philadelphia, she now sails from her new home in the Inner Harbor of Baltimore, in addition to private charters to the Chesapeake Bay. Her design is based on Colvin’s Gazelle, his personal boat.

Tom

Member since October 2015

Cap’n Tom is an accountant and attorney in his “other life” and a lifelong sailor who also crews aboard the Tall Ship Kalmar Nyckel of Delaware. He’s a Coast Guard licensed Captain who grew up in Maine, sailing from Bar Harbor and Camden in the too brief summers. As “Skipper," he’s responsible for all the ships systems and keeps everything ship-shape. He’s also a Red Cross certified First Responder, so he keeps the people ship-shape, too.

Location and Destination Guide

Usually this boat operates around Baltimore, MD.

Home to the US Naval Academy, Annapolis, MD is one of the best places to jump on board your own sailboat charter and feel the ocean spray! Sailo offers a great selection of monohull, motorboats and catamarans.

 

Anchored deep in the Chesapeake Bay, Annapolis is the perfect place to jump aboard a sailboat and spend some time on the water. Although this isn’t the open sea, there is lots of opportunity to let the wind fill the sails and experience the thrill of sailing.

FAQs

What type of yacht should I charter?

No matter what type of yacht you choose to charter, we know that you will have a fantastic time on the water. If you are more about the journey, and want a relaxing time aboard, then choose from one of the many sailboats on the platform. If you are more about the destination, and going fast, check out the powerboats on Sailo. For an exclusive experience, Sailo recommends chartering a luxurious yacht for the day. Finally, Sailo has access to many event boats as well for group outings from 50 - 1,000 guests. If you are still unsure, then just ask! more...

What should I bring?

Bring yourself, and some comfortable clothes suitable to the season you are going to be out on the water. Please keep in mind that it is often 10 degrees cooler out on the water, so a jacket or windbreaker is never a bad idea. We also recommend bringing a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses, as well as a swimsuit if appropriate for your charter location. Please coordinate with your captain regarding any food or drinks that you wish to bring aboard. For term-charters, Sailo recommends using soft-sided luggage, and keeping it simple. more...

How long does a rental last?

The basic daily rental is structured as either a quarter-, half-, or full-day. A quarter-day is two hours, a half-day is four hours, and a full-day is eight hours. You can also discuss a custom trip with the boat by contacting the owner through Sailo. Most term charters (weekly rentals) are from Saturday to Saturday. Keep in mind that the boat generally needs to be back at the dock by Friday evening, and you will need to be off the boat on Saturday morning so they can prepare the boat for the next guests. more...
