Dufour 1800 - all the amenities of a large cruising vessel in a 25' package. Sailing room for 6, sleeping room for four, has a real flushing head, propane stove, barbecue, and 2 sinks! Sails great. Beamy with a heavy keel, extremely stable boat.
Pre-qualification for bareboat -- please let me know about your recognized sailing credentials and/or similar sailing experience.
Captained sailing is also available. If you are unsure of your sailing skills - I'm also an ASA credentialed instructor and we can start out with an educational or refresher sail together.
Matt is excellent. He took the time to show me the boat and practicing docking. The vessel is in great condition and Matt's passion for sailing shows. Matt took the time to help me plan a trip with the tides, current and wind. I cannot recommend him highly enough and I will be renting again very soon!
Boat was great for our group of 6 with plenty of room up top and down below. Matt was an excellent captain and host who took us on the perfect tour around the south tip of Manhattan passing right by the Statue of Liberty and up along the Brooklyn coastline. He was very knowledgeable about a variety of the landmarks and history of the area as well.
