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.
The Hamptons are a popular summer destination for the well-to-do from New York City and the surrounding areas. You will find beautiful beaches and top restaurants, high-end shopping, and plenty of Hamptons attractions by boat. Try Montauk fishing, go for a Sag Harbor sailing trip and have fun with watersports, or plan a trip to Shelter Island. Enjoy sailing from Southampton to Montauk for a romantic dinner. Sailo has the perfect selection of boats to take advantage of this boater’s paradise.
