Private Keelboat Charters

A private charter is a fun opportunity for a group of up to 3-5 people to get out on Boston Harbor in a sailboat, with no need to worry about planning a thing! Experience the fantastic views of the city from the water, learn some sailing skills or take the helm if you’d like, check out some Boston landmarks, or just sit back and enjoy the ride.  An expert instructor will be there every step of the way, and will be happy to customize the lesson or cruise for you.  We have a variety of boats available for charter, including Rhodes 19s (comfortable 19-foot keelboats that fit up to 3-4 people), J/22s (faster, more responsive keelboats that fit up to 4 people), and our cruising boats, which can fit 4-5 and are suitable for longer trips around the Harbor Islands.  Feel free to bring a picnic or snacks for the sail (note that alcohol isn’t permitted before or during sailing).  Life jackets are provided.  Minimum of 2 hours; price includes as many guests as can safely fit on the vessel. 

Courageous can also accomodate private groups requiring 2 or more boats. See our Corporate Functions page for more information.
