    Ahoy and welcome aboard - your adventure awaits!  Introducing the Derek M Baylis (DMB)!  The DMB is a custom 65’ Wyliecat sailing yacht and the only one of her kind in the world.  As a high-end luxury yacht, she is suitable to meet the requirements of sophisticated events as well  all others who just want to have fun! She will make a fabulous and unique background for the photos that will seal your special event in memory. As a Coast Guard documented vessel, she is inspected annually to prove that she is still in top shape to comply with the strict US Coast Guard requirements.  Her other mission is to serve as a platform for marine scientists and educators for deep water research tasks (such as placing tags on great white sharks) which takes her out into the ocean to the islands off the California coast.  For these trips we can rapidly turn her into a marine laboratory!  So, she is a boat with an interesting story and your charter fee helps to make all that possible.    In a nutshell, we offer the following: As a large and spacious 65ft vessel, she is documented to carry a lot of people, but under the current COVID restrictions, we keep it to 28 guests max. It is cost effective to BYOB and food, and we NEVER CHARGE A CORKING FEE.  Bring your favorite beer, seltzers, wine, champagne and snacks, and we will do the rest. We will have ice-cold coolers, glasses, cutlery, plates and napkins for your use. If you prefer to kick back and have us do all the work - we can arrange catering for an extra fee Collect your favorite songs on a playlist on your phone and we will pipe them through the onboard speakers - inside and outside You and your group can be as hands-on as is desired.  If the passengers want to sail the vessel, we welcome it We hire friendly and experienced crew, and we believe that crew tips are earned, so bring some cash to compliment the crew if you feel that they did well.  Our knowledgeable crew can answer questions about the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, San Francisco, Oakland or any of the other cities around the Bay.  Boarding is extra - in Richmond (East Bay) the harbor charges us $100 to use their guest dock, but we can also pick you up in San Francisco for a $220 fee that we have to pay to the SF Port Authority. Having served the San Francisco bay area for over 5 years she is a regular on the bay on weekends helping people to celebrate special events like birthdays, new jobs, leaving the bay area parties, as well as weddings, after wedding reception parties, retirements and ash scatterings at sea.  For our Corporate guests, she has been the perfect venue for team building, work-at-home team get togethers, launching new products or enticing a prospective customer with a HIGH-END flair.  Contact us to get a copy of our team building program.  A champagne toast under our own iconic Golden Gate bridge from a luxury, high-end yacht adds a punch to any business venture. Event planning is included for free so please write and tell us about your event, so that we can help you with the planning and to further assist you in customizing your trip. We have several choices for you to select from, so contact us and let us tell you what we can do! Thank you for selecting us, and we hope to have the opportunity to serve you and your party.

      So happy I went with Wylie Charters. Jody and Captain Chris provided great communication. Jody helped me find the best time to sail to hit sunset (while still warm) which was great. Half the group was from out of town so this was such a fun trip to sail the bay and see all the best sites of SF. Even though we had 30 people, the boat was spacious enough to fit everyone comfortably.

      My group and I had a great time on the boat! We really enjoyed the route the crew took us on. Overall, we had an amazing time and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a fun boating trip on the bay!

      Team was very knowledge of the Bay and gave suggestions on what direction to go based on wind. They also showed us a real sailing experience versus more of a sip drinks ride (but are capable of doing both)

      Lots of options fit my requirements but I'm so happy to have gone with Wylie Charters and I hope to book them again. Great space for gathering, knowledge safe crew that will dontheir best to cater to your preferences, solid communication by Jody who wasbthere to greet us, guide us, and wait for late guests. Smooth sailing all around and let our guests be super hands on. My guests told me how great the crew was. The captain helped ease my niece's apprehensions about heeling and explained to her how it worked and we wouldn't tip over and it totally made her comfortable. I would go out on this vessel and charter with this company again in a heartbeat. Thanks for an amazing day on the Bay!
