About Paul

“Ahoy there landlubbers, I'm originally from Australia, been boating for decades. Have sailed a catamaran around the world during the 90's. I've owned Valkyrie, a Catana 582 Ocean Cruising catamaran for 10 years. Based East Coast USA. We charter in the Hampton's for half the year, Miami Winter, Fall NYC and Hudson River. Join us for exhilarating, day sails to Sunset Beach, Navy Beach Montauk, the Bays of Sag Harbor and Shelter Island. We offer boating experiences from "meditative relaxing" sailing, or family oriented with wonderful pirate adventures, to wild and zany nightlife... Available for half day, full day, or overnight. cheers”

Aboard since 2015

From Southampton, NY

  • Paul was great! He was right on time, very polite, let us play our own music and just chill out on the front of the boat while he took us for a nice sail. We stopped to swim for a bit which was amazing. Everything was very relaxed and super enjoyable. Will definitely book again!

  • Wow. What an incredible day sailing the beautiful water. Paul was the consummate host, we felt very safe in his years of experience. Incredible cat, incredible chill, incredible time. We didn't want to leave. So cool for families - we have 2 young ones and they even secured pirate booty. Happy days. Don't hesitate. We'll be back. Thanks Paul! Hugs, The Goldmachers x

  • We had the best time with Paul! Our original plans were foiled due to Dorian but he helped us work through alternatives to rearrange for our bachelorette. He provided coolers/ice immediately and helped lug our own goodies on board. The boat had more than enough room for our large group of girls to lay and watch amazing sunset, as well as dance to our own playlists. Highly highly recommend!

  • Beautiful boat! Great day!

  • Our sail in Sag Harbor with Captain Paul was the highlight of our bachelorette party. He met us at 1 long wharf and helped us into the dingy which brought us to the boat. He was attentive and assisted in helping each girl, bag, cooler get onto the boat safely. He let us use his boat's speaker system and showed me how to use it so I can easily DJ using Spotify. The boat came equipped with bean bag chairs, beach towels, and noodles for us to use. The size of the boat was substantial and for our group of 6 girls felt quite large. He let us go swimming, took a few group photos of us, and gave us the option to be dropped off at Sunset Beach so that we could have more time on the boat and make the most of the location. He also offered to bring back any large items we did not want to carry with us to Sunset Beach. We met up with him the following morning to pick up the coolers. Overall, couldn't of been more perfect and I'd highly recommend him to anyone.

  • Paul was such a great time. He was very nice and informative! The boat was clean and very cool. He is very laid back and would love to go book again.

  • Perfect experience!!!! We could not have asked for a better experience... Captain Paul was cool, easygoing and friendly. We were running a little bit late and he was super easy about it - he even let us stay on the boat a bit longer to make up for the time which was completely unnecessary! The boat itself was immaculate - multiple clean bathrooms! He has tons of beanbags for lounging and he will play any music you want! He even had iphone chargers to use!!! It was the a great day sailing around sag harbor - he stopped for a while to let us jump off and swim which was so fun! We were a group of 10 and we ALL haven't stopped raving about our day at sea. We cannot wait to do it again :)

  • We had such an amazing time on the Valkyrie with Paul!!! I can't say enough wonderful things about the boat, the whole date and Paul. It was the highlight of our weekend we are already trying to figure out more dates to do it again. Thank you for an unforgettable experience!

  • We did a sunset cruise with Paul on Saturday June 25th and it far exceeded our expectations! Paul was friendly, and accommodating, and the boat was spacious and perfect for our group of 9. We brought wine and snacks and enjoyed lounging on the bean bags while we watched the sunset! This was my first time using boat bound and certainly won't be my last. especially if I have the opportunity to rent with Paul again!

  • We had an exceptional experience sailing around Sag Harbor and Shelter Island with Paul. His boat is beautiful and as a captain, he did a phenomenal job of showing us around. We took a few opportunities to anchor and go swimming - plus a side trip for lunch at Sunset Beach. Overall a wonderful trip and highly recommended. Thanks Paul!

  • Paul and his lovely wife (?) are chill and mellow hosts. the boat is wonderful, especially under sail, and paul has total knowledge of peconic bay and surroundings. my family loved it, and it was worth every penny.

  • What a perfect trip!! Paul is the coolest captain ever, very laid back and made us feel at home. We had the perfect sunset sail with stops along the way to swim. The hospitality was off the charts and our entire group had a blast! The ship itself is beautiful, and quite large. Very stable on the water and Paul is happy to either sail or motor depending on what the charter has in mind. Can't think of a possible flaw, except that we could have spent a week on board. Thank you!!!!!

  • A great day in the Great Peconic Bay and Sag Harbor. Perfect boat and Captain for entertaining and enjoying the waters of the Hamptons!

  • Paul and Meredith were consummate hosts, with an efficient operation. A short and delightful water taxi ride to the beautiful 60' catamaran left us with nothing more to do than watch the anchor come up and take off for a wonderful tour of Gardner's Bay and around shelter Island, with beautiful views and a perfect wind for sailing. We brought food and drink for the trip, easily set out and served in the main cabin. Comfy beanbag chairs on deck and blankets to warm us up as the sun set completed a perfect afternoon and evening. Just fabulous.
