Sailing yacht Sunset is a 1982 37 foot O’Day owned and operated by Captain James . Sunset can hold up to 6 passengers and is ideal for smaller intimate sailing charters. Sunset is a very comfortable and spacious coastal cruising yacht with plenty of room aboard to stretch out and enjoy a sail. Sunset comes equipped with a center cockpit and two separate cabins, which makes for a very unique and convenient layout for longer sails. When the O’Day 37 first launched in 1978, the design was applauded for it’s layout and the boat’s sailing performance. The yacht is a great layout for long-term trips, where guests can enjoy privacy in the larger forward cabin while the Captain stays in the aft cabin.

Sailing yacht offers a wide variety of sailing charters in and around the New York Harbor area. Sail away on one of our two or three hour charters, or book a longer full day charter from New York Harbor to the surrounding waters. Contact us for more information or to request a special itinerary.

Sunset is owned and captained by James Brooks, a familiar face in NY Harbor. James has worked aboard the historic sailing yacht Ventura since 2009 and continues to work aboard the old girl with the illustrious Captain Pat. James began sailing at the ripe old age of six in upstate New York. Rumor has it that his first word – besides Mom and Dad of course – was “porthole”. A USCG licensed master, James looks forward to sharing the magic of sailing with all those aboard Sunset.

    What a spectacular evening! James was awesome! He was prompt, professional and courteous. We sailed out for the most spectacular sunset to photo the Statue of Liberty at such a perfect time. No one could have planned it any better. James had a blue tooth speaker so you could play music, he was very knowledgeable of local land marks and sailing while his assistant managed the sails and our wine glasses.
    It was a very pleasurable evening and I would definitely recommend hopping on board !

    James is the best captain we could have hoped for! He was so communicative about the weather, totally chill on board, and very prepared with plates/forks/blankets/you name it. We'll definitely be booking 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.
