New York Magazine acclaimed Heron Yacht Charters: Unsurpassed Hospitality at Sea.  

The most sought after catamaran in the Hamptons, Heron Yacht Charters offers private sailing charters for up to 38 GUESTS with unsurpassed hospitality. Half Day, Full Day and Sunset Sails are available from Montauk, Sag Harbor & Shelter Island from May through October.

Summering in the Hamptons, Heron explores the intricate bays of Eastern Long Island from Sag Harbor to Montauk, affording glorious afternoons spent under the sun, sipping rosé and anchoring off the secluded beaches of Shelter Island for swimming and paddle-boarding.

Meticulous planning and well-honed execution have elevated Heron Yacht Charters to a world-class experience, and a reputation to support it.  Our goal is to continue being the best on the water, setting the bar so high that only WE can reach it!

Complimentary provisions include ice, water, coffee/tea, and Heron’s signature cocktail.  While you are welcome to bring anything you’d like in addition (except for RED wine), you may also choose to collaborate with Shannon for anything from wine and cheese pairings to a most decadent spread.

Special Events

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

Theme Parties:

While 1950’s French Riviera is a favorite theme among guests, nothing beats our masquerade theme, inspired by St Barth Carnaval.

Photo Shoots & Product Launches:

Spacious decks and an all-white decor provide a clean palate needed for photos, keeping focus on the subject.  Heron’s 38 passenger certification also provides an excellent venue for product launches.

Corporate Events:

On the water, detached from daily concerns and obligations, this lush micro-environment of freedom and luxury allows families, friends and corporate groups a special time of respite and renewal.

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.
