    Martin was wonderful. The boat is beautiful, contemporary and clean. Martin and his deck hand wore their masks the entire trip and provided really nice drinks/food service.

    Martin & Caleb were great!! They made my group of four feel very comfortable as we boarded and were very helpful in creating an enjoyable experience for us during our 2 hr trip. The boat was larger than I expected and they helped us make use of it by ensuring our safety as we sat in front of it closer to the water. Caleb came around periodically to check on our champagne glasses and even held it down with the photos. This experience was a first for the group and I'm glad we had such a great crew to expose us to the boat life!

    A fantastic day. Great communication from Martin from pre-booking through to our reservation time.

    Good space on the boat for 6 people, not too cramped.

    Martin was a perfect host, providing engaging commentary from time to time, but never in an invasive way to our group.

    Very responsive service from the first mate.

    We chose captain Martin services and boat due to his responsiveness and customer service. He did not disappoint, on the contrary, he went beyond. It was a beautiful sunset trip, transforming a great birthday into an epic one. We will return soon!

    It was fun, he is a nice host, sadly the volume for the music wasn’t as loud. But the boat is really cool, definitely worth it

    Martin and his first mate were very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. The boat is beautiful, clean and they are great at creating an experience for guests. They allow you to bring wine on board, and help keep it cold and serve to you. They offer some interesting anecdotes about NYC history, but know when to sit back and let the group have fun themselves. The offer to take photos. Everything was perfect! Will definitely book again

    Great sailboat to spend a birthday with close friends. It was especially nice to be out in the water around sunset time, the weather was perfect and the views looked epic. Captain Martin and Rachel were awesome, we didn't even have to lift a finger, they were so attentive. Definitely would do it again.
