About Ian

“Hi my name is Ian. I've lived in Brooklyn for ten years and love to share my joy of sailing and nature with guests. I'm the owner of Enchantress, a beautiful 1994 Catalina 34 sailboat. I have a USCG (United States Coast Guard) Master sailing license, I'm certified in CPR, and have spent years living and sailing around the Atlantic East Coast. I once solo sailed the Bahamas for a Winter and had friends visit me along the way. I look forward to meeting you and going out for a sail around NY Harbor!”

Aboard since 2018

From Brooklyn, NY

  • My friends and I had such a wonderful time aboard Ian’s sailboat for my partner’s birthday! I’ve never seen NYC quite like that before, it was incredible. Would definitely recommend to others and will absolutely do this again. Thanks Ian!

  • Ian was courteous, helpful and careful
    He was on time, quick to answer questions and understanding, ready to jump in when needed or to hang back when we were hanging out.
    Would enthusiastically recommend him and his boat to anyone!

  • Ian was great! super professional, friendly and polite. The boat was awesome and it fulfilled all expectations. My group and I had a wonderful time on board and will definitely be doing it again.

  • We had a blast on Ian's boat! Beautiful sailboat and he took us on a great itinerary. All while being respectful wearing a mask and allowing me and my group to hang at the front of the boat during the sail. Highly recommend and excited to do it again! :)

  • My friends and I absolutely loved our experience. Ian was super friendly and we all felt very safe! Highly recommend!

  • We had an awesome experience with Ian! Highly recommend. It was the perfect socially distant birthday celebration. Bring drinks and snacks and have a blast!

  • Had the best experience! Very relaxing and beat all of our expectations. Will definitely be coming back again!!

  • What a great time we had sailing with Ian. I booked for an afternoon sail and a party of 6 girlfriends, all of which were so enchanted we wished we stayed on board for the entire day. A true breath of fresh air and the guarantee to impress your friend on her special day. Ian was incredibly kind and professional, gave a lot of precious advice about sailing, and absolutely inspired us to come back for more. The boat is in great condition and he was also very easy to communicate with and right on time which is always appreciable as well. It was clearly a highlight in this otherwise morose early summer and I am speaking for the whole party saying we recommend Ian warmly. Thank you!

  • We had a great time sailing around Manhattan with Ian. He is a terrific host, he was kind, thoughtful and accomodating. He even helped my wife feel comfortable when she felt a little sea sick. Would definitely recommend him!

  • We had a wonderful time on our sail with Ian! He was kind and professional, took us out on a wonderful trip and was totally flexible with any request we had. Highly recommended!

  • Ian was awesome! Great captain, easygoing and very safe. Very nice boat for 2 or 3 couples. I would highly recommend his boating experience.

  • A unique and intimate experience of NYC! Ian was a very knowledgeable, accommodating and competent captain. Our dog tagged along and we were all comfortable and loved the experience. I’m not a strong swimmer but I felt secured throughout the entire sail. We’ve been on a few boat charters in the city but this exceeds them all. Highly recommend and will definitely be back for another sail.

  • Ian is a great captain and a gracious host. We had such a lovely time sailing around Manhattan. Ian was very accommodating and it was super easy to communicate with him. We had a great experience and will definitely sail with him again.
