Description

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.

    We had a magical sunset sail with Derrick over LDW. We took a cute tender (motor boat) from the dock to the sailboat. He safely guided us on and off the the boat throughout the evening. The sailboat itself was beautiful and well-maintained. Derrick is clearly an experienced and knowledgeable captain and we enjoyed the little backstories about surrounding islands and his sailing anecdotes. The seating was comfortable with clean towels covering the cushions. Derrick even provided a couple wine glasses for us to enjoy our beverages. We spent a majority of our time out on the deck watching the sunset over Sag Harbor. Overall, would definitely go back out to the sea with Derrick and highly recommend the experience!

    It was an unforgettable yacht trip! I decided to celebrate my birthday and Captain Derrick with his wonderful sailing yacht gave a real celebration! I absolutely agree with previous commentators that Derrick is a very kind, unobtrusive and knowledgeable captain! Great trip! Diving from a yacht was a true pleasure! Thank you very much to the captain for his work and for allowing us to spend this day so magically on his yacht and make my wish come true! By the way, Derrick is also a great photographer ;)

    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.

Location and Destination Guide

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. 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...
