Atlantic Yachting is a boutique, family-run sailing company and Manhattan’s oldest sailing school. In 12 years Atlantic Yachting has grown to become Manhattan’s premier sailing provider, offering everything from Private Sailboat Charters, to Group and Private Sailing Lessons for adults, and New York City’s first Summer Sailing Programs for kids. We believe it is our hospitality and our true desire to provide an outstanding, authentic sailing experience to every client that has earned us glowing reviews, numerous return customers, and exceptional press.
Our J/24’s are outstanding educational sailboats. The J/24 has become the world’s most popular keelboat and is renowned for its excellent handling and fine feel for the wind and water. The J/24 was designed to fulfill the diverse needs of recreational sailors such as cruising, one-design racing, daysailing and handicap racing. It is the perfect boat for youth sailors because it provides the feel and handling of a small boat, with the stability and safety of a larger, non-capsizing boat.
Brand new for 2021! Vitamin Sea is a Benetau Oceanis—a modern sailboat with all the amenities. Relax and stretch out in the spacious cockpit, complete with above-deck table stocked with your favorites treats by our attentive crew, or make your way up to the bow for breathtaking views of the NYC skyline and the Statue of Liberty—all while streaming your own custom playlist to our Bluetooth sound system. Too much sun or a little bit of rain? No problem! Vitamin Sea’s canvas Bimini shade will keep you cool and dry, but there’s plenty of space to catch some rays too. While you’re relaxing topside, the Benetau Oceanis’s fast, stable design is working hard below the waterline to get you to all the best spots quickly and safely.
Our entire fleet is optimized to keep things safe and fun for both and novice and advanced sailors. With full wraparound lifelines (cable railings around a boat) and a heavy lead keel, the risk of ending up in the water is very, very slim. All our vessels have reefing mainsails and multiple foresail options. What does this mean? It means that we are able to “de-power” the sails depending on wind speeds, making for a safe, comfortable experience.
