    WOW! What an experience. I booked Walter's beautiful sail boat for my surprise proposal (she said YES!). All the communication prior to the experience was great, he was flexible with me bringing food, photographer, and even suggested locations to stop, anchor, take pictures, and ideal locations to pop the question. Walter and his deckhand were both so friendly, provided water and drinks, and always made sure we were taken care of. We, especially my fiancée, felt ultra-special the entire time. I'm so happy and have nothing but positive things to say and will 100% refer his boat and hospitality to everyone I know. Thank you Walter and team! You made our special day incredible and so perfect.

    Great experience! The boat was clean and spacious. We were able to choose where we wanted to go, play our own music, and have full run of the boat. It was really like having your own boat for the day, but with an experienced captain to drive (shout-out to Captain Matt). Couldn’t have asked for a better day on the water!

    Our sailing experience with Captain Walter and Rica was fantastic and very memorable! They are a great team and go out of their way to make sure everyone is comfortable and has what they need (including my two young daughters). We did a half day sail in the afternoon and can’t wait to book our next charter! Highly recommend.

    Captain Walter and his first mate Reese were absolutely excellent- we have nothing but good things to say about our trip. We booked a sail for the 6 of us (3 couples) as a fun night out- we did a sunset and city lights cruise. Not only were the views exceptional, but Walter and Reese were accommodating, knowledgeable and just so nice. They helped us store our drinks and food in the boat, showed us around, and did everything in their power to make sure we had the perfect sail. I would recommend to anyone who’s looking for a beautiful and relaxing ride around Manhattan.

    Captain Walter and first mate Risa were stellar! They were great hosts, expert sailers and went above and beyond to ensure our group had a great time. The Captain replied to all my questions during and after the booking process in a thoughtful and timely manner. And the boat was great - clean, space to store the food and wine we bought, and comfortable. It was the perfect way to celebrate a birthday.

    This was an amazing boat ride. Captain Walter and his first mate were extremely kind, professional and knowledgeable. The boat ride itself was very smooth and safe. I couldn't have asked for a better experience for my sister's birthday. Thank you Captain Walter! We will surely book again!

    Walter & his Co captain were very polite accommodating. These guys were super patient and understanding with my cousin being 30 mins late. Walter has a lot of experience being a Captain and also point out some historical facts about New York. My friends and I had an awesome time. I would definitely book them again for a trip on the water.

    Can’t. Walter and Katrina were the greatest hosts. They were so accommodating and very nice. We originally had an earlier time but he had recommended for us to change our time to see the sunset and it was an awesome decision my friends and I made. The sunset was absolutely beautiful. My friends and I had the best time and would definitely book with Capt. Walter again.

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.

    What type of yacht should I charter?

    No matter what type of yacht you choose to charter, we know that you will have a fantastic time on the water. If you are more about the journey, and want a relaxing time aboard, then choose from one of the many sailboats on the platform. If you are more about the destination, and going fast, check out the powerboats on Sailo. For an exclusive experience, Sailo recommends chartering a luxurious yacht for the day. Finally, Sailo has access to many event boats as well for group outings from 50 - 1,000 guests. If you are still unsure, then just ask! more...

    What should I bring?

    Bring yourself, and some comfortable clothes suitable to the season you are going to be out on the water. Please keep in mind that it is often 10 degrees cooler out on the water, so a jacket or windbreaker is never a bad idea. We also recommend bringing a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses, as well as a swimsuit if appropriate for your charter location. Please coordinate with your captain regarding any food or drinks that you wish to bring aboard. For term-charters, Sailo recommends using soft-sided luggage, and keeping it simple. more...

    How long does a rental last?

    The basic daily rental is structured as either a quarter-, half-, or full-day. A quarter-day is two hours, a half-day is four hours, and a full-day is eight hours. You can also discuss a custom trip with the boat by contacting the owner through Sailo. Most term charters (weekly rentals) are from Saturday to Saturday. Keep in mind that the boat generally needs to be back at the dock by Friday evening, and you will need to be off the boat on Saturday morning so they can prepare the boat for the next guests. more...
