A Star is Born in NYC

The iconic mid size yacht, she has style, power and, thanks to over 1000 HP, just a little bit of that fun NY attitude.

The Star is a simply beautiful yacht with amazing finishes and that perfect nautical style. When you step aboard you will experience a luxury space that can transport you away from troubles and into those magical emotional escapes found upon the water.

Multiple lounging spaces easily handle 12 passengers, both in the shade and in the sun with plenty of room. We have refrigerators and multiple coolers. Inside is a beautiful full head (bathroom). On full day charters, an outdoor shower and BBQ provide even more options. The sound system can make the neighbors look!

She is the perfect environment for those most special celebrations. A best friend's birthday - a co-worker's celebration - the moment you ask her to be yours forever... Make a memory that will be with you always.

Beach trips and BBQ! We can run down to one of the beaches in the NY Harbor area, anchor off the shore and make a day of it! Drop the paddle boards into the water, walk the sandy shore, get some sun up on the bow and grill out on the boat's BBQ deck. It is an easy, yet amazing vacation from the city.

Morning or night - there are lots of options with the Star - A girls morning brunch with Champagne, client entertainment packages and our unique Movies on the Hudson, where we anchor by the Statue of Liberty, set up the big screen and projector and have the best "boat-in" theater around!

Just "message the owner" and we will get right back to you with a custom price for a NYC experience unlike any other.

Please note - we have a 10 day cancellation policy. Within 10 days, we only cancel charters when the USCG announces a Small Craft Advisory. Yacht is equipped with a full enclosure and small passing summer rain showers do not prevent us from having a great time on the water.

The USCG requires you to pay the USCG licensed captain directly. If you have someone with their license, our insurance carrier will need a copy of their resume and license in advance. If you do not have someone with the right certifications, don't worry, we can point you in the right direction through NY Harbor Captains. Very easy process.

    Great experience, excellent communication. There were some last minute adjustments that needed to be made that affected pricing but the experience was overall very positive aside from this. As a last minute booking Amal did a great job making our boat rental happen and we appreciated that.

    I booked this yacht experience with Amal through Sailo for an anniversary and couldn’t be more satisfied with how everything went. Amal was extremely accommodating and Captain Mike did a great job sailing. The boat was in perfect condition just as the photos online showed. I highly recommend sailing on the Hudson Star!

    Five stars! Two thumbs up!
    The luxury yacht exceeded our expectations- what a great way to celebrate Father's Day! The transaction was seamless, pleasant, and timely. The vessel had great amenities and beyond. The selection of popcorn variety was a nice touch for my seven and 3-year-old boys. The owner truly captured and executed the luxury vibe. The captain and the crew delivered superb service.

    Just book it and have peace of mind.

    Celebrated my husbands 50th birthday on “The Star”. The whole thing could not have been better. Great communication and boat was beautiful. Looks basically brand new, very clean, which was awesome. Lot of space for us and we could have had 4 more easily. Very friendly crew. They even had a “Happy Birthday” sign up for my husband.

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. 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.
