Reviews of Gershon (40)

  • Great trip with a wonderful captain.

  • Gershon was an amazing captain and host! The water was a bit choppy that day so he redirected us to calmer waters to avoid everyone getting seasick. He made sure we were having fun and asked us what we wanted to do throughout the day, which was nice. I'd book him and his boat again in the future!

  • I had a great time.
    Boatsetter's is the best!

  • Great experience! He's kind and helpful!

  • Amazing amazing experience. Tony was an awesome captain, who allowed us to be comfortable and enjoy ourselves to the highest level of pure bliss.

    Highly recommended

  • Can’t recommend highly enough! Beautiful, spacious boat and Gershon is a consummate host / excellent captain. Took our party to perfect and quiet spots, gave us a sailing lesson and made great conversation! Couldn’t have been a better experience.

  • Great experiences. Captain is super nice. I would recommend to more friends.

  • My trip was awesome, thank you Tony we had a great time.

  • Tony was very helpful and accommodated us all the way. His boat was clean and had all the amenities. We all had an amazing time and would totally recommend this trip.

  • Very nice experience on the boat ! We will definitely sail out with them again for sure

  • We had a wonderful day aboard the Luba with Tony. He answered all of our questions in the lead up to the trip in a speedy fashion. We had no trouble checking into the yacht club and heading out to sea. We had a relaxed day. Tony, himself, is very easy going. We would do it again!

  • As a first time user of Boatsetter I could not be more happy. From the moment we met with Captain Gershon till we were back at shore he was extremely kind, professional, patient & attentive.

    Having been aboard vessels both larger & smaller, 47’ Luba is a true gem. She is well maintained & was sparkling clean. As an amateur sailboat aficiando, Captain Gershon provided loads of valuable information & even offered us the opportunity to get hands-on and help with the masts when it was safe to do so. We anchored in very calm waters, had lunch and were able to go for a swim.

    It is not every day where you meet someone with the experience & knowledge of sailing like Captain Gershon.

    Respect the boat & Captain Gershon and you will surely have an unforgettable on-water experience. Looking forward to many future sailings!

  • Second time out with Gershon - such an amazing time! We’ll keep coming back 😎

  • Gershon (Tony) was an amazing host.

    We had a great day for my birthday with our five friends (6 total). Tony taught us a bit about sailing but took the reigns for most of the day. Plenty of time to enjoy the sun and stop to swim. One of my favorite experiences in New York! Would highly recommend to everyone!

  • We had so much fun the day we sailed with Gershon, he was very patience and helpful I will definitely be sailing with him again and I would also recommend his services

  • We had an absolutely amazing time with Gershon. He is awesome and this boat is gorgeous. If you are trying to find the perfect day sailing out on the waters, this is the way to go! We sailed around Rockaway and Breezy Point and swam near Jacob Riis. Perfect day!

  • We had the best time sailing on July 4th! Would definitely do it again.

  • Gershon is a wonderful and gracious host. We had a great time hanging out in the bay and enjoyed all the views during our sunset trip!

  • Me and a group of 4 rode with Ghershon when he was first located in Brooklyn, NY. We were his first clients with what used to be boatbound. I'm back in Brooklyn at the moment and reminisced on the awesome experience we all had when we went put on the boat with Fresh in. He treated us just like family and made our experience the best it could possibly be. I'll never forget being in the water holding on to a rope being dragged by the boat in the New York Harbor and then having sweet slices of watermelon while we returned to shore. It was an unforgettable experience and I'm sad to find out Gershon has moved to Florida. Thank you for being awesome.

  • Great experience on great boat with great person! I had sail trip with Tony on my birthday. It was very good experience, we got out through port everglade outlet and sail for 3 hours down to Hollywood beach and back. Luba in a very good shape, roomy boat for 6-8 people, sails and all gears works perfect.
    I can recommend Luba and Tony for everybody who wants to get new experience in a good boat in a good company. And I need to tell you - they have cheapest price for rent in our area.
    Also you can ask Tony or me to teach you how to sail, I can offer you IYT training with Bareboat Skipper license.

  • Had a wonderful experience on Gershon’s boat. He was well accommodating and helped me in every step of the way (great photography too:)). Truly grateful for all the help and a wonderful boat ride! Highly recommended!

  • We had such a fantastic time with Gershon! First of all, he was very responsive to emails and texts, second - he was very experienced in navigating and was super flexible to our desires.
    The boat itself is better than we expected, it has music, little kitchen and great sitting area! What could be better for a chilled summer day.
    Definitely recommend!

  • Our group of 6 had a great time on Gerson's boat. He can tailor your day to suit whatever it is you would like to do, and is always making sure that everyone is having a great time. A few of our guests were starting to feel the effect of a choppy sea that day, and Gershon knew exactly how to re-position the boat to find calmer waters and a smoother ride. I would definitely recommend Gerson and Luba!

  • We had a wonderful experience sailing with Gershon. He is a an experienced captain and a great host. We will come aboard again soon.

  • Had a great family time sailing, fishing, swinming. The capitan is experienced sailor, knows the area, and in general a nice prrsone to be around.

  • Couldn't ask for a better captain and it was an awesome time spent with my friends to celebrate my 19th birthday. Got turnt up and had an incredible time, would recommend to everyone.

  • It was such a great experience! Gershon was so understanding that I was running late, and still made me get my full day's worth. He is so nice! I will definitely do this again and I encourage everyone to do the same 💕

  • AMAZING, simple amazing. Gershon made this a trip to remember. Great conversation and the boat was stocked with all we needed. My husband truly enjoyed the sail and is looking forward to another trip. I highly recommend Gershon for all your sailing needs. Trust when i say you get way more than you pay for. Thanks again for making my hubbies birthday weekend one to remember.

  • Gershon/Tony was absolutely AMAZING. I booked the boat as a surprise for my husbands birthday. He was so excited when he learned we were going on a sail boat. From the time we pulled up til the time we pulled off in our car Tony was nothing but pleasant. He is VERY knowledgable about boats and the surrounding area where we sailed. He gave us a tour of his boat, which is very well kept. He helped me on the boat and even played a double roll of not just caption but as photographer as well. He took a ton of pictures for me and my husband to remember this awesome experience. I will DEFINITELY be booking with him again. We highly recommend this boat and owner!

  • Tony is a wonderful guy! He will try everything he can to make your boating experience as fun and seamless as possible. We were running late due to jersey traffic and when I called to let him know on the day of, he had no problem being flexible with us and even offered to extend the hours to make up for the hours we were late. He showed us around his boat very kindly and had no problem us four girls cooking in the kitchen area. You will be surprised to find more kitchen/cleaning essentials than you expect. We forgot to bring wine opener but Tony had few extras in stock, in addition to knives and full sets of serve ware. He also offered us few jackets when the wind got a little too chilly and bottled waters. Overall, I would love to boat again with Tony. I actually want keep this contact secret to myself if possible so it doesn't become too difficult to book with him again...! If you're looking for a fun experience, look no further.. he's a sweet man who loves to sail with people and you'll have a great time.

  • Gershon (Tony) was an excellent captain. He was very nice, extremely passionate and very welcoming! The boat was absolutely amazing, and Tony taught us all the basics of sailing. I will definitely be coming back to rent this boat. I would highly recommend anyone who is looking to rent a boat in the area to go to Tony right away.

  • We used the boat to conduct a photo-shoot for a swimwear brand, and we couldn't be happier with the result. Captain Dmitry was extremely professional, helpful and an amazing sailor. Boat is in great shape. Thank you very much !!

  • 5 stars for Luba and Tony! Took Luba out with 5 friends this weekend and Tony was awesome. Super accommodating and friendly. He let us anchor for a bit to eat lunch and took us out to the Atlantic Highlands for drinks. It was a great day on the water! We love Tony and would definitely recommend!

  • Having some sailing experience, we chartered "Luba" for a day to sail the ocean. Gershon (Tony) let me be a skipper, and my son volunteered to be a crew. The weather was perfect - sunny, warm, 10-15kts wind, the boat was going 4-5kts, and we sailed as far as Atlantic Beach. We spent a wonderful unforgettable day on the water. Tony generously shared his extensive sailing experience with us and helped me navigate shallow waters at low tide. Everyone enjoyed the trip and Tony's company.

  • Amazing time! Great captain, great boat and overall great experience. Thank you!

  • Sailing with Tony was awesome! We were a group of 6, celebrating a birthday and Tony was very accommodating to us. He took us to Atlantic Highlands where we got off for lunch and then got back on a couple of hours later to catch the sunset as we sailed back to Brooklyn. He was very knowledgeable and even showed us how to sail a bit. I would definitely do it again.

  • Gershon (Tony) was a great captain. He is very knowledgable at sailing, easy-going, and great to get along with. There were five of us who went on the trip, and everyone had a great time sailing. I would highly recommend Tony and his beautiful boat to anyone looking for an enjoyable sailing experience.
