About the Business

ChicaGo By Boat LLC offers Chicago's premier affordable luxury boat charters.  We invite private groups of up to six passengers aboard the S/V Nightswimming for two to four hours based on our guests' needs.

While on board you can watch the sunset behind Chicago's skyline or watch a full moon rise out of Lake Michigan.  You can also experience the Wednesday & Saturday Navy Pier Fireworks from the front row.  Want to host your corporate outing?  We can do it.  Want to propose to your partner on a sailboat?  Perfect!  The annual Air & Water Show as well as Museum Campus, Northerly Island and Soldier Field events are some other opportunities to experience the water.  Or, maybe just sail with us because it's your Sunday Funday or you're on a stay-cation!

Whether it's your first time, only time or just the next time; we want your sailing experience with us to be the BEST time you have this Summer.

About the Boat

The S/V Nightswimming is a prototype for the Hunter Marine Legend 35.5 cruiser/racer design. She was professionally owned and operated by Chicago's premier marine mechanic for over 13 years. In that time almost every detail of the yacht had been restored, upgraded or impeccably maintained. For your enjoyment it boasts a refrigerator, marine head, topside custom closed cell foam cushions & Bluetooth compatible Bose stereo.

We are confident that the S/V Nightswimming is superior in every way to when it left the builder. So, we are proud to offer you the cleanest and only fully functional vessel in its class and price range.
