Description

Stated above is only an estimate of the charter fee. Please inquire with details of your trip for a quote.

This boat is an incredibly luxurious 180 foot yacht designed to accommodate parties of all kinds. Its modern amenities and chic décor make it perfect for dance parties, weddings, corporate events, birthday parties, and more. Beyond the ships onboard luxuries, the magic of New York City adds to what will certainly be an unforgettable time.

She features three separate levels for guests to enjoy. The first two floors are indoor, and feature heating and air conditioning systems for a comfortable atmosphere no matter what the weather is doing. On these floors you’ll find two fully-stocked bars, two full-sized dance floors, and enough seating for up to 200 passengers. On the third level is an open-air promenade that’s perfect for a romantic moment, or a relaxing gaze over New York City’s unbeatable skyline and historic landmarks.

We work closely with a successful catering business that provides buffet-style entrees for our party cruises. A wide variety of menu items can be chosen from their options, including vegetarian options, a kid’s menu, and more. Guests will dine in style aboard this modern vessel.

Cruises on the Harbor lights start at $55.00 per person and we ask that you guarantee a minimum of 100 passengers. We will also work with you to provide DJ’s, photographers, and other services if you’d like. Our cruises last for 3 hours plus time to get guests on and off the ship. We can board at several marinas throughout the New York City area although there may be additional fees for certain locations.

Location and Destination Guide

Usually this boat operates around New York, 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.

 

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.

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...
