    Amal was great! Super responsive and made the process very easy. I booked last minute and she made it work! Even had a happy birthday banner ready for my fiancé! True yacht is so nice and has great space. Will be booking for the Fall!

    We had the best time sailing with you. The boat was beautiful. Captain Jacqui and Kailey were phenomenal. It was the best birthday celebration in a long time. I will definitely do this again.

    We enjoyed our trip very much. Amal is an incredible hostess and made us feel right at home. She truly went above & beyond, and even took a ton of pictures of our night. It was an event my family will never forget!

    Our group had an excellent time on the charter! We were celebrating double birthdays and every one of our needs were anticipated. The attention to detail was impeccable and we were blown away but the elevated level of service. The boat was beautiful and well-maintained. We felt safe and had fun. Amal and her team completely exceeded our expectations.

    I booked this yacht experience with Amal through Sailo for an anniversary and couldn’t be more satisfied with how everything went. Amal was extremely accommodating and Captain Mike did a great job sailing. The boat was in perfect condition just as the photos online showed. I highly recommend sailing on the Hudson Star!

    Five stars! Two thumbs up!
    The luxury yacht exceeded our expectations- what a great way to celebrate Father's Day! The transaction was seamless, pleasant, and timely. The vessel had great amenities and beyond. The selection of popcorn variety was a nice touch for my seven and 3-year-old boys. The owner truly captured and executed the luxury vibe. The captain and the crew delivered superb service.

    Just book it and have peace of mind.

    Celebrated my husbands 50th birthday on “The Star”. The whole thing could not have been better. Great communication and boat was beautiful. Looks basically brand new, very clean, which was awesome. Lot of space for us and we could have had 4 more easily. Very friendly crew. They even had a “Happy Birthday” sign up for my husband.
