ALYAN is a really sweet sailing yacht, built to sail all oceans. She has classic Sparkman and Stephens lines. ALYAN was built in Italy for the purpose of a sailing and diving expedition in the Caribbean. She went into the charter trade in St. Thomas after that and continues as a charter vessel in Sag Harbor, NY to date. She is a very well maintained vessel and a great joy to those who sail aboard her. ALYAN has also won her class and division more than once in some good size local regattas.
Great sailing experience! My 5 year olds enjoyed it a lot too! Captain Derrick is extremely experienced and knowledgeable of the local terrain. Will definitely ride with him again!
Derrick was extremely professional, definitely knew what he was doi g and had a beautiful boat. We felt very comofrtable and safe the entire time.
Phenomenal day trip for four of us, beautiful boat where we brought a picnic lunch and went swimming. Derrick knows Sag Harbor, Shelter Island and the surrounding areas like the back of his hand. Relaxed, reliable and friendly, we really enjoyed having him as our captain. Highly recommended.
Derrick was awesome! He was good with kids and was really knowledgeable about the area. It was definitely worth it - great day!!

I am a marine professional. I have captained sailing yachts for private owners and for charters for 35 years. I have owned and chartered the 45 foot sailing yacht ALYAN since 1992. I am a certified marine surveyor of yachts and small craft with the National Association of Marine Surveyors and regularly conduct surveys for prepurchase, insurance, or damage. I manage several yachts at this time as well, including a 72 foot performance sailing yacht. I have sailed thousands of offshore and coastal miles. I also race sailboats competitively. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and making sailing an experience that exceeds the expectation of my guests, crew, friends or family.
Usually this boat operates around Sag Harbor, 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.
