MEA is a mini-tug, and was designed for going far while enjoying the scenery. She is very pretty and is a great boat for cruising, fishing, swimming, and exploring nearby restaurants on the water. With bow and stern thrusters, she is a pleasure to dock, and her digital TV, bluetooth stereo, and refrigerator will keep the crew happy!
During the summer, watch the Coney Island Fireworks from the water on Friday nights...
Large cockpit is perfect for that special photo or video shoot, with our patient crew working to line it up just right :)
If you decide to scatter the ashes of a loved one at sea, we will make sure you know the relevant regulations and take you outside the 3 mile limit required by the EPA.

Alex and Eduard were courteous and capable hosts, tailoring a Manhattan tour to fit the likings of our party of five. I certainly won’t forget the priceless views of the City and sights, like the Statue of Liberty. Coordination with Alex was extremely easy by both email and phone.
As for the boat, MEA is a beautiful little red tug, with both intimate cabin and deck space with a little table. Despite her size, she kicks it up to 10 knots to race the Wall Street ferries. MEA makes for a unique experience unlike any other conventional powered boat on this site.
The crew were absolutely amazing. I hired this great mini-tug for a photo project and the crew was extremely flexible with me on dates, were willing to depart for a shoot at 3AM, and were very skilled & responsive with regards to maneuvering the boat for my shots.
Also, they provided complimentary snacks for my crew! So so lovely.
The boat is so lovely, with ample room for lounging and working both inside and out. I could see that this boat would be incredible for a leisure trip, but its great that the crew could also cater to our professional needs.
Full stars for the MEA crew & will certainly use them again.

Usually this boat operates around Sheepshead Bay, 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.
