Description

Our boats are custom built replicas of a type of American sailing craft called a Skipjack. Skipjacks were originally designed and built to dredge oyster beds in the Chesapeake Bay region during the late 19th century. In the early 1900s, Skipjacks were sailed down to the Florida Keys to work in the sponging and cargo hauling industries, and primarily as “Wrecking Schooners”, which were boats that raced out to salvage the many very profitable wrecks that went aground upon the reef and shallow waters off the Keys. A Skipjack’s shallow design, coupled with its impressively large sail area, make these vessels ideal for sailing the backcountry.

Our perfectly designed shallow-draft schooners enable us to access the very shallow waters that comprise the Key West National Wildlife Refuge and which is the home to countless beautiful and deserted out islands. And, in turn, keep all of our guests in very calm, protected waters, even on the windiest of days, thus preventing any problems with sea sickness or rough water sailing.
There is no better way to experience the incredible natural beauty of the Keys than under a cloud of sail, in shallow and protected waters that provide flat seas even on the windiest of days!

Private Sunset Sail:
This trip includes 8 selections of wine from around the world including champenoise, upscale beers (import and domestic), hors d’oeuvres that complement the wines, non-alcoholic beverages, 2 hour sail at sunset and you can bring up to 30 guest. This is one of our more popular private charters that we do. Great for that special occasion or company outing on the water. $2299.00

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...
