New York Magazine acclaimed Heron Yacht Charters: Unrivaled in luxury sailing.  Private luxury sailing charters for up to 38 guests:  Sag Harbor, Montauk, & the Caribbean.  Half day, full day, and sunset sails.

Summering in the Hamptons, Heron explores the intricate bays of Eastern Long Island from Sag Harbor to Montauk, proposing to her guests glorious afternoons spent under the sun, sipping rosé and anchoring off the secluded beaches of Napeaque for swimming and paddle-boarding. Unable yet to say goodbye to her favorite seasonal Hamptonites, Heron sails for 1 week in Manhattan before migrating to the Virgin Islands for the winter to offer private sailing charters from St John, St Thomas and St Barth.

Charters aboard Heron are always private and absolutely first class, fine-tuned by a detail oriented and tireless crew.  We have high expectations on what luxury sailing should be, and take immense pride in focusing as much on one as we do on the other.

Complimentary provisions include ice, water, coffee/tea, and Heron’s signature cocktail of rum punch topped with fresh nutmeg.  While you are welcome to bring anything you’d like in addition (except for RED wine), you may also have arrangements made by our onboard hostess for anything from wine and cheese pairings to a most decadent spread.

For additional provisioning, request the services of our private, award winning chefs or a simple list of preferred vendors.  Also request our Onboard Menu when inquiring about a reservation.

Take a peek at our Charter Essentials page for tips on what to bring as well as what will already be onboard!

Special Events

Heron’s sophisticated ambiance provides a most exquisite platform for special occasions.


Theme Parties:

1950’s French Riviera is a favorite theme among guests.

Photo Shoots:

High rails, spacious decks and an all-white decor make up a simple but elegant backdrop needed for photos, granting focus to the subject.

Corporate Events:

Sailing aboard Heron is otherworldly in comparison to the hustle and bustle of Wall Street.  Corporate outings are among our most popular excursions, bringing the same groups of professionals back onboard year after year.

Weddings, Rehearsals & Bachelorette Parties:

Sunset sailing compliments a Hamptons wedding remarkably. Host a decadent dinner onboard or sail with your guests to your waterfront restaurant of choice.
