Description

Welcome to New York City's top rated sailing charter company on the harbor!

This is Captain Eric, at your service! My standard offer is a 4 hour sail along NYC's skyline for up to six passengers aboard my classic sailboat, which is a seaworthy Tayana 37. A four hour sail includes sailing close by the Statue of Liberty and underneath the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. I also offer sails for different lengths of time. Two hour sails cost $755, four hour sails cost $1,025, and full day charters cost $2,050 and you can choose between a morning, day, or sunset charter.

My charters include sandwiches, fruit, snacks, water, sodas, and ice and I encourage you to bring your own music to plug into the excellent stereo, as well as your own alcohol. Pick up and drop off is from Chelsea Piers (Pier 59) in Manhattan. Again, this is New York City's top rated sailing experience!

    My clothing company booked The Genesis as our photo shoot location for a 3 hr sunset charter- Captain Eric was fantastic and made the experience so easy. He was helpful, hospitable, and The Genesis was so perfect for our shoot aesthetic. Will definitely be booking another charter with him for fun with friends sometime soon! Would highly recommend booking with Narwhal Yacht Charters!

    I booked a sunset sail with Captain Eric for a group of girlfriends, and we had the best time! Eric's boat is an immaculate, beautiful classic sailboat, and sailing along the Hudson at sunset was absolutely magical! Captain Eric was super attentive to everyone's needs, and made sure that the group was comfortable and made recommendations on how where to sit on the boat to make the most of it.
    The girls loved it, and we will definitely book with Captain Eric again soon!

    My siblings and I surprised our mom with a sunset cruise of Manhattan's skyline as an early Mother's Day celebration. As jaded New Yorkers who love to be on the water, our ride on Captain Eric's gorgeous sailboat managed to exceed our expectations. He could not have been any warmer or passionate about sailing. He had fun facts to share about New York City and the environment. We lucked out with perfect weather and a view of a blood orange full moon. Capt. Eric also provides snacks/drinks and makes you feel at home on his actual floating home. I can't wait to go out on a longer day cruise with friends :) Definitely recommend!

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.

 

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.

For a four hour charters, The boat sails as close to the Statue of Liberty as permitted, around Governor’s Island via the Buttermilk Channel, up the East River underneath the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge and usually past the Williamsburg Bridge (conditions have to be favorable), back down the East River to round Battery Park, and the finally head up the Hudson River to about the equivalent of the Holland Tunnel. If you have a private charter wi, you can customize the route.

FAQs

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...
