    Manhattan Luxury Sailing to the Statue of Liberty

    We had an amazing time! Beautiful sunset sail on an emaculate boat. Captain Martin and crew wore masks the entire time and followed all covid safety precautions! Communication was easy and seamless. Thank you for the memories and hope to sail with you again soon!!

    Sail New York's historic waterways aboard Water Music, a classic, semi-custom 40 foot Passport yacht.

    Our sail with Captain Ed was magical! We were celebrating a birthday and it simply could not have been more enjoyable than our time on the water. We started our sail at 5 pm and were able to enjoy wonderful views of the Statue of Liberty, Financial District, and Brooklyn Bridge Park. We passed under the bridge and looped our way back around the city just as the sun was starting to set. The sunset sail was simply spectacular. Captain Ed is incredibly skilled and even our family members who tend to feel seasick didn't feel a thing all sail long. The waves were enjoyable and Captain Ed made the sail as smooth as can be. We will definitely be doing this experience again and we can't recommend it enough. If you can, go at sunset. It's absolutely beautiful.

    38' SeaRay for New York Harbor

    We had a wonderful summer evening. Going to the statute of liberty for sunset and seeing the city lights at night was magical! The yatch is in pristine condition, COVID safety is taken very seriously, and we could not have asked for a better captain. Highly recommend it!

    Sea Ray AC Motor Yacht Charter in New York

    Ben was a welcoming captain who helped me with all of my questions in a timely manner. Even when our ride was rescheduled due to thunderstorms, Ben made sure to follow up promptly and offer us alternative days for sailing. He is full knowledge and is a pleasure to talk to; you won't regret booking with him!

Everyone had an amazing time on his beautiful boat, he was very responsive and helpful with everything! The magical day ended with a perfect sunset. Highly recommend! Thanks Johnny!
