A true wooden ship, her hull is solid mahogany, decks are Indian teak and her hollow wooden mast is made of American spruce. The yacht is 72 feet long, weighs 22 tons and carries 30 guests. She was launched in 1921, and was originally owned by philanthropist George Baker (founder of today’s Citibank) as Mr. Bakers’ private duck hunting yacht!

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.
