Introducing our ASTONDOA 81' Classic Motor Yacht M.I.S. MOONDANCE. All are welcome aboard this masterfully redesigned pleasure cruiser. M.I.S. MOONDANCE completed a top to bottom renovation totaling just over one million dollars in September 2015. Taking design cues from Miami's fashionable, glamorous resurgence; this yacht is reminiscent of the boutique hotels of South Beach's most decadent era. Bold and inviting this yacht provides an enchanting experience out on the water with up to 12 of your friends and family.

M.I.S. MOONDANCE'S pristine interior is spacious, comfortable and features:
- Grand salon with a wrap around sofa and four person bar
- Fully stocked galley to seamlessly accommodate our guests' desires
- Indoor dining at the forward settee table
- Three, impeccably clean, guest cabins (one king and two queen) with en-suite bathrooms

Exiting the salon towards the rear of the boat, you're presented with three options for enjoying the fresh air and sunshine that makes being aboard a yacht so unique. Your options include:
- Hang out on the aft deck with available alfresco dining and seating for eight
- Relax up front on our 110sqft sun pad with double stuffed cushions
- Climb the stairs to the 400sqft upper deck with seating for twelve, removable sun shades and is a great place to dance or layout

M.I.S. MOONDANCE is wired with satellite tv, Siriusxm radio, bluetooth enabled surround sound and wifi so you'll have no problem playing your favorite music while we cruise to your chosen destination.

Our M.I.S. MOONDANCE and crew invite you and your guests to come aboard for a minimum of two hours but must ask you to leave after one week(it happens). We take sincere pride in providing a fun, safe and memorable experience for you and yours. Please feel free to call or text for more information. Thank you or taking the time to learn more about our cherished yacht.

Location and Destination Guide

Usually this boat operates around Jersey City, 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.

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...
