This Maine Coaster will give you the best view of New York and its iconic sights, and waterways; from downtown's skyline to the statue of liberty. Renting this boat will give you a unique, memorable experience, in personalized style around the harbor. The captain and crew are highly experienced in the harbor, its sights, and specialize in tours.
As a tour boat her enormous open cockpit makes for a comfortable lounge area for guests to sit, stand and relax as they take in the sights. Few boats of her size offer the kind of space and open views.
Tours include cold water and ice. Guests are encouraged to bring food and BYOB aboard.
Our most popular tour is a complete circumnavigation of Manhattan, which we do in just under three hours. The tour allows you to see not only the iconic Harbor sights—Statue, bridges, etc.—but also get a perspective on the diversity and architecture of the New York most people rarely have a chance to see. Priced at $750.
For my birthday, I decided to do a 2-hour cruise with 4 of my friends. David was very friendly and welcoming and seemed excited to have us onboard. Despite the fact that it was pouring rain about 20 minutes before our scheduled departure, he made sure that the seating on the boat was nice and dry for us before we got on. Once we did, it was very nice. Spacious, plenty of seating, and a place for us to set up snacks and drinks.
The waves were a little rough, but the weather ended up being beautiful and we all had a really great time. We are all native New Yorkers, but cruising on the Hudson was a relaxing way to enjoy the city in a way that we don’t usually get to.
Thanks for the ride, David!
I surprised my wife with a 2 hour tour with Captain Levi and I could not recommend it enough! We had such a great time cruising around Manhattan, the best way to see NYC in my opinion. The boat was clean, with a bathroom, and two places to sit (inside the cabin and in the sun!). Now will recommend this to anyone who lives in NY or is visiting, worth every penny!!!
This was my favorite boat trip!
There is nothing like seeing NYC from the river. It's a forgotten part of what makes the city so amazing. David was so helpful, a great captain. We all felt super safe aboard and he was very accommodating. Boat was clean, comfortable, and had lots of open space. What a lovely day! I'll be back on the high seas w David soon!
This was my first time using Sailo.com and I was not sure what to expect. But we were blown away with our experience; our boat trip was incredible and Captain Dave is an absolute legend.
We booked an evening 1/4 day (2hr) trip across the NYC harbor from Liberty Landing Marina in Jersey City (where we were meeting up with friends) to Pier 5 in Brooklyn (close to where we live). Captain Dave was very helpful in planning. He was easy to communicate with, very responsive, and very flexible in exact start times and pick-up / drop-off locations.
We got lucky on the night of our boat trip; the water was super calm and the moon was incredibly bright. The views of the lower Manhattan at night were unbelievable. My girlfriend (... now fiancé, who is not an avid sailor) commented that she was surprised at how safe and comfortable she felt throughout the entire trip.
Highly recommend a trip with Captain Dave.
for the best ever experience i would highly recommend to use David as your captain.. his charming smile and with his good attitude it was a ride to remember.. thanks David
Amazing way to see all of Manhattan, would not have changed a thing! Thanks to David and Captain Chris for an awesome trip!
Excellent day, and absolutely recommend the boat. Our captain, Tom, was also fantastic and made the trip even better.
Highly recommended. Fun. Educational. Relaxing.
David could not have been a better captain and host. He took us wherever we wanted and was a virtual encyclopedia on nyc locations and history.
Boat was spotless.
Great trip! Accommodated my family even with an early meet up and two small kids (5 and 7). Everyone had a blast.
Unforgettable adventure! Thank you, captain David.
David, our captain (and owner) is a great person. I wanted to propose my girlfriend on his boat with the beautiful view of the skyline of Manhattan in the back. David was great. With his great boat he showed us the south and east side of Manhattan from the Hudson River. He told us stories and facts of the architecture and history of NYC, his hospitalty was great, and we had nice converstions. At the 'moment suprème' he stopped next to the Statue of Liberty where I got down on one knee. He took us pictures which he e-mailed me afterwards. David is a great captain and a lovely person. We felt really welcome and were true guests. I can really recommend David and his boat for all kind of boat trips. You won't regret it.
Regards, Koen (Amsterdam)
We had a wonderful outing!
David was very nice , and patient with our noisy children.
I would highly recommend hiring David & his lovely
boat for any outing in the NYC area!!
This was a great trip. David's experience and local knowledge ensured our film crew got everything we needed and more. Highly recommended.
David was a fantastic captain. We had to do some filming, and he supported us so intelligent and friendly like no captain before.
We had an excellent time on David's boat - it was an absolute pleasure! He was highly accommodating to our needs and was very responsive to our Sailo messages. He always got back to us in a timely manner and provided excellent service on our trip. Would HIGHLY recommend booking with him!

I am a USCG-licensed captain who has run large and small passenger boats—both sail and power—in the harbor and vicinity for over 10 years. I grew up sailing and boating on Long Island Sound and love taking people out on the water aboard Tireless. I have a strong passion for the history of the area and its unique natural and man-made sights, which I love sharing with passengers.
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.
