Martin was a great host - not only was the boat a perfect size but he made the experience welcoming and relaxing for my friends and I to enjoy my birthday. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants a special trip!
Everything was amazing! Pretty boat, great conversation with Martin, attentive crew!
Martin and his crew were great! Such a relaxing sail around the Statue of Liberty. We brought our own drinks and snacks but Martin's crew still served us all of our beverages so we could relax and enjoy the sail. They had bluetooth speakers in the bow and the stern so we could play music. The pickup location near Chelsea Pier was really convenient. Would definitely recommend and sail with Martin again!
This was such a great experience. Captain Martin and Caleb were amazing – communicative, helpful, and accommodating. Can't wait to do it again.
Martin was a great host. Stayed in contact with us the whole time leading up to the trip and was incredibly responsive. Boat was in immaculate condition and the sailing was smooth. We would definitely book with Martin again!
Captain Martin is the ideal person to show you around the city. He and Caleb were both very responsive and took care of us. My friend's birthday celebration was extra special thanks to Martin. I would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone looking to have a good fun time!!

Such a great experience. 2nd time sailing with Capt. Martin and it was wonderful. Highly recommended for a day our with friends or a special occasion.
Awesome time! A must!
Had a beautiful birthday on the boat with 4 friends! Amazing views and Martin and his crew were great.
Martin and his team were awesome to work with. They were very prompt from the first outreach message, through the entire trip. They were very attentive and had everything needed on board. The boat is beautiful as well! Would definitely recommend to anyone!
Amazing experience. Captain Martin was responsive to my hundred questions before the trip, the boat was gorgeous, and he and Caleb did a perfect job of attending to our group of six while still letting us enjoy the ride and eachother. My only regret is that I booked for only 3 hours! Perfect spring day for a bunch of NY/NJers. Loved every minute.
We had the best experience!!
Great Captain. Very helpful in letting my family enjoy our time. Would recommend to anyone who wants a pleasurable experience.
The boat was nice and clean!!! My friends and I had a great time. Thank you

Beautiful boat. Fantastic crew. A moment of pure happiness during a beautiful NYC sunset. Highly recommend!
My family and I had a wonderful time on Martin’s boat. So much so that I want to purchase my own lol. Martin and Caleb served our drinks, answered our questions and let us play our music peacefully. If you are looking for some water time do not hesitate to contact Martin!
Wonderful boat and wonderful crew. This was the highlight of our summer. Martin was a phenomenal captain and the views of New York were outstanding. Cannot recommend Martin and his amazing boat enough.
Great relaxing time!!

Everything was perfect!!
Martin and Kaleib were such great host and we really enjoyed our day with them.
Thank you so much once again... looking forward to another sail with you!
Martin & Caleb were great!! They made my group of four feel very comfortable as we boarded and were very helpful in creating an enjoyable experience for us during our 2 hr trip. The boat was larger than I expected and they helped us make use of it by ensuring our safety as we sat in front of it closer to the water. Caleb came around periodically to check on our champagne glasses and even held it down with the photos. This experience was a first for the group and I'm glad we had such a great crew to expose us to the boat life!
Martin & Kaleb were amazing host. We had such a great time on his beautiful boat, an amazing day with a breath taking sunset and great company. Couldn’t ask for more, Martin was super accommodating, professional and made us feel relaxed and at ease.
This was such a great experience! Captain Martin and Kaleb were so accommodating and friendly! We felt super comfortable as we sailed the Hudson and enjoyed brunch and mimosas! The boat was beautiful and well maintained. I would highly recommend!!! Can't wait to book again! Cheers!

A fantastic day. Great communication from Martin from pre-booking through to our reservation time.
Good space on the boat for 6 people, not too cramped.
Martin was a perfect host, providing engaging commentary from time to time, but never in an invasive way to our group.
Very responsive service from the first mate.
great communication throughout and had a fantastic time on the boat. size of the boat was perfect for 6 people and service was excellent. would definitely book with Martin again. thank you!
We chose captain Martin services and boat due to his responsiveness and customer service. He did not disappoint, on the contrary, he went beyond. It was a beautiful sunset trip, transforming a great birthday into an epic one. We will return soon!
Martin and his ship hand Caleb were excellent, friendly, informative, and hospitable hosts. Would recommend this boat ride to anyone :)
It was fun, he is a nice host, sadly the volume for the music wasn’t as loud. But the boat is really cool, definitely worth it
This was a great way to go on a quick getaway from city life! Martin and Caleb were excellent hosts- would highly recommend!
We had such a wonderful sail with Martin. Such a wonderful experience to celebrate a birthday. We can't wait to book our next trip.
We had an amazing experience was a really nice and clean boat we would definitely book again
Martin and Hans are amazing!
Booked the boat for 6 people for a friends birthday and we couldn’t of asked for more. Wish we booked for more than 2 hours.
Very accommodating and lovely people.
This trip was amazing! Our party went for a 1/4 day sail for a birthday celebration around sunset and the whole experience was incredible. Martin was very accommodating and even assisted us with or planned picnic.
We had a wonderful time on Martin's boat. He was very hospitable and friendly during our ride. Would definitely go out with him again. Thanks Martin!
Had a great cruise with Martin & Mike! Highly recommend for any occasion, was a first class experience on a beautiful boat!
Martin and his first mate were very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. The boat is beautiful, clean and they are great at creating an experience for guests. They allow you to bring wine on board, and help keep it cold and serve to you. They offer some interesting anecdotes about NYC history, but know when to sit back and let the group have fun themselves. The offer to take photos. Everything was perfect! Will definitely book again
A great ride with a profesional Captain - Martin - and his crew - Todd - one of our best sailing experiences !!
Great sailboat to spend a birthday with close friends. It was especially nice to be out in the water around sunset time, the weather was perfect and the views looked epic. Captain Martin and Rachel were awesome, we didn't even have to lift a finger, they were so attentive. Definitely would do it again.

I love to share the joy of sailing. Manhattan is where I learned to sail more than 25 years ago. It all started out with a daysail, and I was hooked. I love the thrill of raising the sails and the cutting through the water. I've sailed from Maine to St Lucia, through hurricanes and doldrums. I've seen the curvature of the earth and experienced the Bermuda Triangle.
I have a USCG 100 Ton Master Captain’s License and am a NYC architectural and history tour guide. Ask me anything! Or just sit back and enjoy the experience. Let's go sailing!
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.
