    Frank was excellent to work with. He was very professional and had a wealth of knowledge in the boating business. He was keen to every question I had and followed up in a timely manner. The staff was great and the tour was excellent!

    We had a company event on the Calypso and it was just perfect. Frank and his crew were a dream to work with. The crew was so attentive and provided the best service . The food was delicious and our glasses were always full. Frank was so easy to work with - kind and patient among other things. I cannot rave enough about Frank and his crew -- they provided an incredible and memorable experience that allowed our team to feel valued and be rewarded for their hard work. Thank you Frank!

    I was so happy with our experience on the Calypso. The crew was so attentive and the food was delicious and my entire group felt well-cared for and enjoyed themselves. Frank was responsive to any questions I had and very communicative about all the details and decisions before our trip. I can’t recommend him and his crew enough. I’ll definitely be sailing with them again.

    I could not have been happier after my trip with Frank. I had planned a surprise 30th birthday party with 40 friends and family. I had no idea how charting a boat would be, but Frank made everything so easy for me. He was so attentive and nice to work with. During covid I thought it may be more difficult, but frank upgraded me to his larger boat so i was able to accommodate more guests. The boat was amazing, two floors, very spacious, with lounging furniture, and room for a dj.

    His staff was unbelievable!! They were so accommodating and made sure everything I needed or had a worry about was taken care of. The food was delicious, the lamb chops were to die for, and the servers made sure the food kept coming. The bar tender was awesome, so personable and had just as much fun with us!! The whole experience was absolutely amazing, everyone was so friendly, the views were breathtaking, the weather couldn't have been better, i can’t say one person was disappointed.

    Highly recommend this, it was worth every penny! If i am ever in need of a boat again i know exactly who to go to.

    This was an incredible and memorable experience! Frank made chartering the boat a very simple and streamlined process. He addressed all our questions immediately and in a timely manner and was very courteous and professional. The boat was beautiful. It was spacious and comfortable with enough room for guests to move around. The staff of the boat was courteous and attentive. The bartender kept refilling drinks and the waiter made sure to keep the food coming out at a steady pace. The food was excellent as well. The various appetizers were perfect portions that did not fill you up but kept you coming back for more. The miniature fish tacos and the lamb chops were delicious! I highly recommend this yacht experience to anyone looking for a wonderful time out on the water.

    Exceptional! Frank was very responsive and helpful, providing us with parking options, details on the yacht, etc. His crew were extremely accommodating and welcoming, couldn't have asked for better. We had a four hour cruise with about 15 people, and it really was a perfect evening. Strongly recommend!

    Where do I start! Frank was beyond accommodating. I should know! I had a bizarre last minute request. My party of 20 jumped to 30 on the day of (unexpected family surprise). Frank was like no problem, I’ll set you up on our bigger boat, literally 2 hours prior to us boarding. Problem solved! Now, the crew! Outstanding. Very helpful. They captured a lot of great pictures! Couldn’t be more please with my choice. Thank you Frank!!

    We had a wonderful time with Frank’s boat! The crew was very helpful, and it was easy to book and plan a nice trip for a group. Sound system works great and it has the perfect balance of indoor and outdoor space.

    Frank's boat and crew are wonderful. I booked his boat for a recent birthday celebration and I was extremely pleased with everything. Frank was very responsive during the booking process, and his crew was extremely attentive and accommodating aboard the boat. My friends and I had a great time and I would certainly recommend booking with Frank for your next outing on the water.

    If I could give Frank and his crew more stars than this I would! I booked this boat to throw a 30th birthday party for myself and 30 friends. We could not have had a better experience. The boat is absolutely beautiful, WAY better than the photos suggest (and they're already great). The owner, Frank, as well as the people at Sailo were very responsive, usually within half an hour or so. They answered all of my questions happily and fully. During the event, the crew was incredibly friendly, helpful, and attentive. They took care of every tiny detail. We were constantly hearing "don't worry, I'll take care of that, go have a good time!" We all felt very taken care of, and were all able to relax and enjoy the beautiful day on the water.

    It is good to know that the cancellation policy for this boat is different than the website's cancellation policy. Don't let that worry you though, the boat has more than enough covered space in case of rain.

    Highly Recommend! Would book every year if I could!

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.

Can I bring my own food onboard the boar rental?


0 votes
Yes, guests can bring their own food. However, they must be room temperature, as you will not have access to the galley.

If the weather is very bad do you refund the trip?


0 votes
The boat rental only gets canceled if the Captain deems it is unsafe to go out. If that's the case all monies are shifted to a mutual agreeable rain date. The captain has seen that happen once in 18 years with super storm Sandy. The Hudson river and East river are two of the most protected waterways on the East Coast. We sail rain or shine. The interior spaces are climate controlled and completely comfortable. The past two weeks throughout some of those rainy days we have completed 16 Charters. Everyone was happy!
