    Beautiful sailboat, very safe and well maintained.

    Hank knows what he is doing and is no amateur. We had a great day out on the water with him.

    He was extremely flexible and laid back, I wouldn't hesitate to book again!

    Had a great time with the family on Hank’s sail boat. He is a true professional and I would recommend going out on the water with Hank to experience the sites of Long Island from the water.

    Henry was so helpful and accommodating in planning our trip which was a birthday surprise. The boat was clean and in great condition. The ride was everything we had hoped for. We all enjoyed it immensely. Henry is a great captain and pointed out all landmarks.

    We booked a family sail to celebrate my parents birthday and it exceeded our expectations! The boat was very spacious and we had plenty of room to move around and different areas to sit.

    Captain Hank was great! He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and took us on an incredible summer sail. We truly enjoyed every minute of it. I highly recommended booking a sail with Captain Hank. It will be an unforgettable experience.

    This was a fantastic trip. Capt Henry was great. We could not ask for a better trip. The boat is exactly what you see in the photos. Henry is extremely knowledgeable, fun and considerate. Not only did we sail but were able to jump off boat into water and swim for a while as well. This was our 1st trip with sailo and would recommend Capt Henry to everyone.

    Highly enjoyable experience! Hank is extremely knowledgable captain; easy-going, thoughtful, and tuned-in. The Swan 48 is just right for comfort under sail, covering some distance, and luxuriating generally. Would definitely do it again!

    We enjoyed our sail with Hank. The boat was extremely well maintained and he was able to find a quiet sport for us to sail and enjoy the day, despite it being a busy weekend.

    Hank's boat was gorgeous and well maintained. Hank himself was kind, knowledgeable and very fun to sail with! I would recommend this trip to anyone with or without sailing experience. Thank you, Captain!

    We were treated by our son and daughter-in-law to an unforgettable Sunset Sail aboard the magnificent Avocation. It was easy to become fast friends with Capt Hank and his lovely wife Cathy. They educated us on the intricacies of sailing and provided a sprinkling of local lore too! Highly recommend it to those who wish to become one with the winds and the waves

    We had a wonderful time aboard the Avocation! Captain Hank was awesome and very kind. The whole trip exceeded our expectations. We would definitely sail with Captain Hank again!

    Hank is a fantastic Captain. Not only he knows his way around the LI sound but he uses the voyage to teach his passengers how to sail.
    I would definitely sail with him again.

    Captain Hank and his lovely wife Cathy hosted the perfect day filled with beautiful views and gracious company. I highly recommend them for a day trip and/or sunset cruise. The boat is pristine and exceeded our expectations.

    My fiance and I were delighted to have Captain Hank and his lovely wife, Cathy, make our engagement extra special.

    I had proposed at the docks before our voyage.

    Hank went to great lengths to secure a safe and memorable cruise from Huntington Harbor in Long Island Sound, east along Long Island and back across passing Connecticut.

    Cathy came along as an extra pair of hands. She made delicious hors d'oeuvres and poured a split of Champaign Hank secured for us.

    His sailboat was just as described and in perfect condition. They were lovely hosts, and we had many laughs together. But they also gave us space for us to enjoy our milestone.

    We are very grateful to them for coordinating a trip to remember, and that we will surely never forget.

    My family had a wonderful afternoon sail with Hank yesterday enjoying perfect weather and excellent sailing conditions. We would recommend this experience to anyone looking for a relaxing, informative day on the water. Hank was very responsive during the entire booking process and encouraged my adult sons to help man the boat.

The boat is in the Caribbean during the winter. She sail an offshore program through the July 4th week this year so will not be available until the middle of the summer 2022.

Lifelong waterman. I have been working on the water my entire life. The past 30 years delivery boats with over 250,000 miles. Worked offshore oil rigs off Canada, South America and Africa like is the movie Deep Water Horizon. Commercial fished winters out of Montauk like in the "Perfect Storm" movie. I have sailed from Newport to the Caribbean every year since 1998. During Covid I have pivoted to being a day charter skipper. I look forward to taking you and your family/friends out. It is a very nice boat if you like to sail. If you like to swim we have a great place to swim nearby. The boat will be back from Bermuda by July 4th weekend. 2022

Location and Destination Guide

Usually this boat operates around Huntington, 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.
