Relax and Enjoy The waterways New York Harbor aboard a modern spacious Hunter Marine Passage 450. The captain grew up on the Hudson River & Long Island Sound and has also spent 25 years in the South Florida area and brings years of sailing experience. He is a teaching captain, thinking out loud always making all other captains feel very comfortable. The captain is also an entertainer and avid musician and most New Yorkers have heard him performing around town or on the radio doing jingles. He never quit his day job as an engineer CPA accountant legal document writer, code writer and consultant in the daily newspaper industry. Everyone will be thoroughly entertained. The boat can be repositioned across the sound to City Island or Port Washington or Northport or Huntington or Stamford Connecticut or to Brooklyn or Atlantic Highlands, NJ. The captain can teach other sailors tips and tricks for big boat sail handling and maneuvering. This includes sailing with fractional sail exposed on the windy days to keep the ride nice and smooth and very stable. Given the full Bimini and raised solar panels covering the entire aft deck everyone can relax in the shade. Ice-filled coolers are available, and there is always a stock of 16.9 ounce bottles of water, Crystal Light ice tea mix, and whatever alcohol you want to bring onto the boat. Cruises can also be easily specially catered upon request. The boat is a center cockpit sloop-rigged sailboat with in-mast furling main and furling jib. Aft steps give easy access to the water. Aft hot and cold shower at steps. The aft deck can easily accommodate six people seated in 6 specific chairs and two others sitting on towels on the back deck under the shade of the solar panels. The large center cockpit can easily accommodate 8 people. There is plenty of space for everyone to spread out on deck during a 4 or 8 hour sail. There is a full galley with microwave. The boat is fast and it does it’s theoretical hull speed of 8.4 knots with half tanks and flat seas with only 18 knots of wind. Several cushioned chase lounge seating. Please inquire about per person and per hour discounted pricing for partial days especially out of Port Washington Long Island where the boat is based. I’m looking to keep the boat extremely neat and be able to turn it over in 30 minutes for the next charter upon the current charter leaving the boat. I prefer no one brings any red cocktail sauce or red wine aboard as the cleanup becomes extremely difficult and time-consuming..
