Description

Please inquire about per person rates for smaller parties.

Relax and Enjoy the NYC Skyline aboard a modern spacious Hunter Marine Passage 450. Capt Mark grew up on the Hudson River and brings years of sailing experience. He is a teaching captain, thinking out loud always making all other captains feel very comfortable.

Captain Mark is an entertainer and avid musician and most New Yorkers have heard him performing around town or on the radio doing jingles.
He never quit his day job as an engineer CPA accountant legal document writer, code writer and consultant in the daily news paper industry. Everyone will be thoroughly entertained.

A standard four hour cruise from One°15 Marina in Brooklyn ($150 Boarding fee+$150 reposition fee) Or the Chelsea Pier 59 at 18th St in Manhattan ($300 boarding fee) includes sailing around the tip of Manhattan, seeing the New York City skyline, passing close by the Statue of Liberty, and teaching other sailors tips and tricks for big boat sail handling and maneuvering. This includes sailing with fractional sail exposed on the windy days to keep the ride nice and smooth and very stable.

The boat is based in Port Washington where there are no boarding fees (same with boarding at JP‘s Lobster House in City Island Port Washington is a $9.75 short Long Island rail Road ride from Penn Station in Manhattan. Right across the street from the town dock is a Stop and Shop grocery market and liquor store allowing you to grab any supplies for your cruise. I supply a good 50 pounds of ice.

From these two ports, cruises are much more relaxed with less boat traffic around us and better sailing to protected Hempstead Bay where the boat can easily be stopped for swimming if so desired.

Given the full Bimini and raised solar panels covering the entire after deck everyone can relax in the shade.

Ice-filled coolers are available, and there is always a stock of 16.9 ounce bottles of water, Crystal Light ice tea mix, and whatever alcohol you want to bring onto the boat.

Cruises can also be easily specially catered upon request.

The boat is a center cockpit sloop-rigged sailboat with in-mast furling main and furling jib. Aft steps give easy access to the water. Aft hot and cold shower at steps.

The aft deck can easily accommodate six people seated and specific chairs and two others sitting on towels on the back deck under the shade of the solar panels.

The large center cockpit can easily accommodate eight people.

There is plenty of space for everyone to spread out on deck during a 4 or 8 hour sail.

Full galley with microwave.

The boat is fast and it does it’s theoretical hull speed of 8.4 kn with half tanks and flat seas with only 18 knots of wind.

Several cushioned chase lounge seating.

The boat can be repositioned anywhere in the New York metro area from Port Washington just a 12 minute subway ride away from Manhattan or City Island to that many points along the Jersey side of the Hudson River.

    This was one of the nicest Sunday afternoons-originally a Fathers Day gift for dad but we conveniently all benefited.
    Captain Mark was welcoming and a charming host to us each and all, expertly and easily gliding his sailboat through the water under the beautiful bridges and viewing the NYC skyline.
    Beautiful weather, quality time, great conversation, laughs, snacks of course, cool drinks - all made for a wonderful summer memory.
    Thanks captain Mark! Looking forward to our next sail.

    Mark was an absolutely excellent Captain. On the day of our trip we got some storms that threatened our trip and he stayed on top of the radar and updated us almost every hour to see if we had to cancel or reschedule.

    Luckily we ended up being able to continue with the trip and it was such a great time! He is very knowledgeable and funny. We had fun partying and the boat was definitely big enough to hold 11 people easily. There was only one toilet to use but that was no problem, and there were ample places for storage and extra coolers on board that he provided us to store our drinks. We mainly stayed above on the top of the boat vs. below but there are some places to sit and rest should you need to downstairs but can get very hot on a muggy day - besides it's best up where the breeze and views are at anyway!! :)

    We got to see a beautiful sunset and it was the best way to celebrate my birthday during these tough times. Highly recommend!!

    Ten of our friends did a boat trip for the day. We had a great time and Mark made sure that we had everything we needed and did what he could to make the most of our day. He was very knowledgeable and did what he could to accommodate us. I would highly recommend him if you want a nice day at sea.

Location and Destination Guide

Usually this boat operates around Port Washington, 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.

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...
