    Booked to celebrate my birthday with a few ladies and kick off my “Sex in the city” themed day! Crew was great, extremely accommodating even tho we brought our own food & beverage on board!! The yacht it self was definitely one of the most visually attractive on the water. Could not have been more perfect, would definitely recommend!

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.

Policies

Boat Rules
What to Wear
Traditional yachting attire is casual elegance. Wear flat shoes and clothing that's appropriate for the day's weather. And it's always a good idea to bring an extra layer of clothing when you're out on the water.

Music
Bring your playlist! Onboard sound system has Bluetooth connection. We recommend downloading your playlist in advance; sometimes cell phone connection can be spotty on the water.

Gratuities
Wind and waves can tip the boat but only you can tip the crew. If you have a wonderful sailing experience, please show your appreciation to the captain and crew. Customary 18-25% gratuity is appreciated. We accept Venmo, GooglePay, ApplePay, Zelle, and cash.

Photo ID
To protect us from pirates and stowaways, valid photo ID (passport or US driver's license) of the credit card holder must be provided. Photo ID can be sent in advance to gosailingnyc@gmail.com, or text 917-399-9084, or provided at the dock before boarding. If valid matching photo ID is not provided, passengers will not be able to board the vessel.

Weather
Yachting is an outdoor adventure. With yachting you’ll feel the sun on your face, wind in your hair, and sometimes a rain shower. If there’s a chance of rain, the captain will monitor the radar and determine 2 hours prior to departure if any pockets of rain can be avoided. If not, the captain will reschedule your charter.

Motion Sickness
Our boat is steady at sea but sometimes the harbor can get bumpy. If you suspect you might get motion sickness or you have been in the past, please take motion sickness medication prior to departure.
