The Dalton School Sailing Club

Video from a great afternoon of Sailing.

It was great to be a part of The Dalton School Sailing Club's inaugural sail. We wish the sailing club the best and look forward to sailing with them more in the future.


Vessel Safety Checks - Entire Fleet

Manhattan Sailing Camp

Every year we participate in the United States Coast Guard voluntary safety checks to ensure our vessels are safe.

Due to an immense amount of off-season maintenance and preparation, our fleet of J24s as well as our Beneteau 43 always pass with flying colors.

We are happy to to have our 2015 stickers on each boat and greatly appreciate the time of the USCG Aux for offering such a great service.

Extremely excellent service. We had a beautiful three hour private charter for Mother's Day, and were totally delighted. The captain, Jonathan, and his assistant Mariette were incredibly nice and attentive. We brought our own wine and food, but they handled setting it out w/ utensils as well as continually refilling our drinks.

The boat itself is very beautiful and clearly well taken care of. We reserved a three hour charter not knowing what we were getting into really, and we were so pleased with absolutely everything.

Can't wait to come back and do it again!

May 15, 2015 MCWilliams said:"Awesome"

Our trip was incredible - We planned a birthday surprise, and it went off without a hitch. We sailed south on a beautiful evening. Jonathon and Nate were exceptionally capable, eager to please and very skilled. We cut the motor and were able to sail, which was incredibly peaceful. The level of service was impeccable, from the moment we arrived at the dock. Would highly recommend Atlantic Yachting. Can't wait to try a lesson!

May 15, 2015 Claire S said: "Above and Beyond Service"

We sailed with Jonathon and Nate and had an amazing time. They both went above and beyond and provided us with everything we needed for the perfect evening. I would recommend Atlantic Yachting to anyone looking for a really lovely day or evening on the water. Thank you!!

May 19, 2015 Crew M said: "Amazing and Relaxing"

Jonathan and Kyle were fantastic! they were pleasant, courteous, and had wonderful scenes of humor that interacted well with our group. The view of the city was very nice and being on the water was so relaxing. we went out for 2 hours and the time flew by. i would highly recommend Atlantic Yachting and Jonathan to anyone!

May 22, 2015 Natalie C said: "More than just a boat ride. Excellent service!"

What a spectacular evening! Whether you're a tourist or a native New Yorker looking for a fun way to see the city at its best, Atlantic Yachting is the way to go! I found the staff to be incredibly knowledgable and helpful, the boats pristine and the service second to none. The tour was both exhilarating and relaxing; it was like seeing New York again for the first time! It's a wonderful way to spend a night out with friends- especially if you're looking for something to satisfy the picky, been-there-done-that traveler. I would highly recommend Atlantic Yachting and plan to travel with them again!

Students Sail To Galapagos

Congrats to the SV Oceanna!

If you follow the blog you have read about Atlantic Yachting Sailing School grads Greg and Kaycee. These two Canadians traded frozen careers in the arctic circle for a 41 foot catamaran. Only one catch....they'd never sailed before.

After an incredible amount of hard work on their parts cleaning up and prepping Oceanna, and some intense Private Lessons with Atlantic Yachting, they were off the horizon. It's only been a little more than a year since they sailed away from us, and they just sailed into the Galapagos. Incredible! They've battles the Gulf Stream currents, cruised the Bahamas, made landfall in South America, crossed the Panama Canal, passed over the Equator, and now they're in the Galapagos exploring it's untouched beauty before crossing the Pacific. We got word via satellite of Stand Up Paddleboarding across the Equator beside the boat and some other wild stories.

Atlantic Yachting + Apiece Apart + = Awesome!

What an awesome day!

Film and TV shoots are always fun. But when they want the boat charging full sail and request to head up the Hudson River into Palisades, you know it's going to be a good day. Weather and lighting were particularly important for this shoot and everything was actually moved forward a day to bring the perfect elements together. Luckily the film crew could adjust their schedules and Gemini had a few holes in her calendar that day as well. Captains Jonathan and Dave were aboard Gemini working with the film crew and models while Logan was on the chase boat with the producer. Can't say enough about how great Apiece Apart was to work with and their clothes are super cool as well. Check out their full Spring 2015 collection HERE and see more of Video Fashion Week HERE.


Check Out Kiesza Sailing With Atlantic Yachting

Kiesza rocks. And she loves sailing.

It was a blast to have Kiesza out sailing with us on NYC's Hudson River this summer. Here is the Vevo edit from her outing with Atlantic Yachting. She talks about her love for sailing and how it started with sailing camp (hint hint parents). We wish her huge success in the music industry (she's kinda already there) and hope to sail again with her soon. Kiesza Sailing in NYC

Max on Yelp said:

My boss bought an afternoon charter for my team, and it was fantastic. The captain and crew were knowledgeable and accommodating. They let us be as hands-on and hands-off as we wanted. The boat was a relatively new, 43' Beneteau with a nice cockpit to gather in.
