Could not be more grateful to Martin and Chris for helping create what is now one of the most memorable evenings of my life. We left the pier around 6pm for an evening sunset sailboat cruise around Manhattan. Everything was perfect. I had told Martin and Chris that I planned to propose to my girlfriend on the cruise, and they went above and beyond to make every moment special. Martin and Chris were both knowledgeable, personable and professional, making us feel welcome and at ease. We were served charcuterie, dinner, wine and champagne at the front of the boat while watching the sunset. Before I proposed, Martin made sure we had a nice view behind us, and Chris took great pictures of the moment. We will definitely book with them again!
We had a wonderful time and couldn’t have asked for anything else. The sailboat is very comfortable and luxurious. Captain and crew were very kind and thoughtful. It has ample of space for a party of 6. Would recommend to anyone who wants a different perspective of the city.
Amazing. So perfect. Took my husband for his birthday and it was so great beginning to end! The captain and crew were so thoughtful, helpful, and kind. We brought our own food due to dietary restrictions and they even helped us set it up nicely. Above and beyond- thank you!
Best trip EVER! We enjoyed sailing around and getting to see the city. The crew was amazing too! We even encountered a small rain shower and the crew was so fast to help us downstairs and keep us dry - I recommend Martin’s boat to anyone looking for a fun activity in NYC!
This is our third boat ride on captain Martins boat and as always we had the absolute best time. I’m always so glad I choose to sail with them and always leave, planning on when is the soonest time I could come and book again. Captain Martin was extremely accommodating & professional throughout the entire booking process and his boat has everything you could ever need. The boat is extremely clean and in great condition. Highly recommend to every single person. Captain Caleb and Gino also made our experience so much more enjoyable & went above and beyond for us. 10/10 - 5 stars isn’t enough to explain what a beautiful experience this is. Runnnnn - don’t walk to book!
Hi! I love to share the joy of sailing. I have a USCG 100 Ton Master Captain’s License and am a NYC architectural and history tour guide. I learned to sail in the NY Harbor more than 25 years ago. Sailing the NYC archipelago is always beautiful and interesting. It's what I live for. Let's go sailing!
