Tom and his crewmate son Max will be your hosts for a lovely sail out of New Rochelle, NY, located roughly one hour out of midtown Manhattan. You can take a sailing lesson with gentle and safe instruction. Most of our customers already want to sail, and want to get extra time on a boat with your hands on the wheel. Others just want to come along for the ride in a beautiful and peaceful environment. Hot in the summer? You can come on board and go for a swim while we anchor with Manhattan in the background. The West Long Island Sound gives you access to Atlantic Ocean waters while you watch the NYC skyline off to the West, with views of gorgeous old waterfront mansions (on the Long Island side of the Sound) and the coastline of Westchester County and Connecticut on the other side of the Sound. Sunset sails are fantastic out here! We could sail you to a restaurant and wait on board while you and your guests go on land for the meal then we return to New Rochelle. If you want, we could do tailor-made cruises such as down the Western Long Island Sound to LaGuardia and Hell Gate onto the East River ending by the Statue of Liberty. NYC is a great sailing location!

Tom is a US Coast Guard licensed skipper ('six pack' license) who has sailed on Long Island Sound since 2019. He began sailing in California in the 1960s then sailed near Boston in the 1970s and has sailed in international waters in Italy, Greece, Turkey, Hong Kong, and Thailand. Tom and his wife bought our boat in 2019, which became the platform also for our son Max to sharpen his own sailing skills (which began when Max was in Middle School in Hong Kong and sailed near Stanley Harbor). We have been training a number of friends and customers who wish to sail with us to enjoy the air and sea and gain confidence at the helm.

Boat Owner


Member since May 2023

I am an American with an international background. PhD in Russian History (I lived in the USSR twice, for my academic work). Then switched to banking and started working on Wall Street in the 1980s. Became a Citigroup Managing Director, with nearly three decades in corporate & investment banking. Worked with Citi in Italy, France, Korea and Asia (regional job). Then worked in Saudi Arabia for 8 years in finance & investments, and now in NYC in investment banking & financial consulting. My sailing experience is captured in the Crew sections for my boat. Meanwhile my languages are (besides English) French, Italian, Spanish and Russian, with a bit of German, Korean and Arabic as well. My life motto is to show my love for nature and humanity through good deeds and words in my daily life. I love sailing because I love the air and beauty of the water and the exhilaration of moving in the water. I find a sailing outing to bring out the best in my guests. As a sailor, I've received a lot of praise from my customers and friends because they tell me I can explain things clearly and calmly, and they seem always to enjoy the outings on our boat. Try it and I think you will love it too!

Location and Destination Guide

Usually this boat operates around New Rochelle, 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.
