The most romantic and unique boat charter in the Hamptons!
ELCO ELCO (1939)
This charming boat was built in 1939 by ELCO. She is 30ft in length of cedar on white oak construction fitted and trimmed with mahogany throughout.
Her lines capture the romance and style of this bygone era perfectly.
As far as we are aware there are no more afloat like her, she truly is unique!
We look forward to welcoming you aboard the Mary Lloyd for the most memorable and unique boat charter in the Hamptons!
Our boat offers the perfect setting to spend a day on the water away from the crowds, sharing in the romance, charm and style of this classic beauty with friends or family. Our boat can comfortably accommodate up to six guests for a day of cruising, swimming, dining, exploring or just relaxing.
The boat has a large comfortable back deck to lounge about on with a table to dine at. The area is partly shaded and also in the sun. Canvas sides can be rolled down to give shelter from weather should that ever be necessary. The original swimming ladder makes taking a dip easy. The spacious bow of the boat is also a delightful place to spend time relaxing and soaking up the magic of the experience.
Inside the cabin are two sofas that convert to bunk beds, a small galley kitchen and bathroom with a hot shower and electric flush wc.
Come and join us for a half day or full day cruise tailored to suit. The boat is located in Three Mile Harbor, East Hampton, NY but we can also collect and drop off by arrangement at some other locations in the area. We can set sail in the morning or afternoon, cruise around and explore the area, drop anchor, take a dip or lounge around unwinding on the water.

Scott and Sara were terrific hosts! We would definitely do the trip with them again. They took us for the perfect afternoon cruise and into a great swimming cove. They both have lots of info on local history, geography and attractions. The Mary Lloyd was very comfortable and we were able to even bring along our pesky little pug. Couldn’t have asked for a better crew! We hope to do this again!

Absolutely FABULOUS Captain (Scott) and First mate (Frank)!!
Beautiful boat with such wonderful vintage elements, classy music, comfortable seating and a knowledgable, gracious and funny 'crew' :)
I wouldn't hesitate for a second to book another trip in the future!!

I have nothing but great things to say about our day with Scott and Sema. They were such wonderful hosts, and showed my guests and I a great time. The boat was very roomy for the 6 of us, with plenty of room to enjoy food and drinks. Next year we will absolutely be contacting Scott for another cruise around the harbor.

We chartered this boat for my husband’s birthday! I looked at so many fishing boats and that’s definitely not what we wanted to do. I wanted a nice relaxing time with the family. We got just that! The boat is just adorable! So cozy and sweet. I fell in love the second I saw on the page. Al others were just fishing botas or regular boats. This has the charm I wanted to celebrate my husband’s birthday weekend. We had a wonderful time. We brought our own lunch but they set it out for us and it was amazing. We anchored and we were able to jump and enjoy the water for a bit! They had pool noodles and the kids had a wonderful time in the water. Sarah and Scott were such a great duo. So sweet and attentive. We hope to come back and do it again.

What an incredible day on the water with Scott! It was incredibly easy to find him and the boat, and the boat is beautiful. Picture perfect for an afternoon on a calm day. Scott was incredibly informative, told us great stories about the area, and was flexible in our route and timing. His son was on board helping and he was the perfect host! Would absolutely go out on their boat again, for an afternoon or a sunset cruise with a couple of friends. Thank you Scott!

This trip was an absolute delight !! The boat itself was gorgeous and I loved hearing about its history. Scott and Sara were welcoming and took care of us the entire time and made us feel so comfortable. Sitting up front with some pillows and some blankets watching the sunset was an absolute dream!! Will definitely book again when we have visitors. Very quick and easy to communicate with. Just book with them you’ll love it !

Scott, a US Coast Guard certified Captain and his wife Sara will be delighted to host you and look forward to welcoming you aboard the beautiful boat to share in the unique experience of cruising and relaxing on this classic wooden boat that has been a much loved part of their family for twenty years. They will look after you as attentively or discreetly as desired.
Their local knowledge of this gorgeous boating region be it touring around Shelter Island pulling into Sag Harbor for lunch or finding a private spot to drop anchor and take a dip, means you are guaranteed an unforgettable voyage.
Sara has been registered to legally perform marriage services aboard the boat and Scott is also a professional photographer who if required can capture the day for you
Location and Destination Guide
Usually this boat operates around East Hampton, NY.
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.
