The vessel is a modern, well designed sloop with all the modern conveniences: spacious cockpit with dining table, full galley, refrigeration, modern heads (2 bathrooms), spacious cabins, and full sun protection. There is a gas grill for barbecuing, and an outboard powered dinghy for going ashore.
She sails well and is equipped with a code zero spinnaker to add speed in light to moderate winds, as well as a powerful diesel engine when there is no wind
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.
Had a great time on Walters' boat. He and Risa were extremely helpful and made the sail amazing !
We had the most amazing night with Walter and his first mate! I couldn't recommend this experience more!
We had a really wonderful trip with Captain Walter and his assistant! Everything was perfect, they are very professional and friendly. Highly recommend!
Walter it was wonderful! Wonderful communication extremely clean boat very wonderful host and my family had a great time. Highly recommend it!
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!
We had such a fun experiences. Walter and his crew were amazing! They made sure we were taken care and made us feel comfortable. 10/10!
Wonderful sail - especially being on the sail for the first time. Enjoyed it to a bit - Captain Dan helped us all the way. Would definitely recommend and want to sail again with them
Walter and his first mate were amazing. They made sure that we were taken care of the entire trip. Thank you Walter for making my birthday even better than I expected!
Perfect afternoon and evening sail with Walter! He took us on an enjoyable ride and gave us the most incredible views of the Statue of Liberty and manhattan at night. Will absolutely be sailing with Walter again!
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.
Trip was great thanks to Walter and his first mate ~ Reesy. They were very welcoming and provided everything we needed. Will definitely sail with them again!
We had the best time! Walter and Reese were so amazing, accommodating, professional and fun! They went above and beyond and added to such a fun day. The boat was beautiful and spacious and i highly recommended!!
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.
Walter and Ree were absolutely fantastic. We can’t wait to sail with them again. Walter is a very experienced sailor and is a great pleasure to sail with. Fantastic!!!!!
We had a great trip with Walter and Reese. Walter was a great captain and very responsive leading up to the trip. They both made us feel very comfortable and like we could make ourselves at home on the boat. We had a great time and enjoyed seeing our city from a new perspective. Highly recommend!
Captain Walter and his crew (Ressie) were amazing.
It was a relaxing and enjoyable evening! Walter was great company, boat was clean and enjoyable. We truly appreciated the excellent communication leading up to the trip as well as the hospitality aboard too. We will use Walter again!

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.
Captain Walter and Resa were very professional and accommodating. They made sure our trip was safe and memorable. The boat was very clean and in great condition. My friends and I had a wonderful time sailing to Breezy Point. I would definitely book with Captain Walter again!
Absolutely INCREDIBLE! We rode with Walter and loved everything about it. Amazing boat and hospitality! Can't wait for another ride.
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.

I have skippered boats in the Caribbean, Belize, Croatia, Italy, and various places in the US. My credential include a USCG 50 Ton Masters License, as well as ASA Instructor credential up to and including Advanced Coastal Cruising.
I have taught sailing and skippered charters in NY Harbor for over 18 years - it is a body of water of which I am very familiar. In addition, I have lived and worked in Manhattan since 1973, and can often provide interesting information about the sights we pass.
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.
