About Yacht Rock Charters
Yacht Rock Charters provides relaxed sailing on Jamaica Bay, NY Harbor and the Caribbean. A truly unique concept, Deliverance welcomes you aboard in Jamaica Bay, the largest open space in New York City. Here you can stay-cation, leaving the bustle behind to experience a “Wild New York City.” Discover the soul of an Atkins design pilot schooner, and embark on a journey. Go aboard for a day, a sunset, or an unforgettable evening. We LOVE our 40 ft sailing schooner, Deliverance. She is sturdy, strong, and loves to sail. Come chill, and let the moving water beneath the sails relax you. Deliverance has ample deck space for sightseeing and mingling. She’s also equipped with BPA-free cups, cooler full of ice, and bluetooth speakers to play your tunes on your device. We will arrange pick up you and your guests in our traditionally built Chesapeake Bay skiff, Tortuga from restaurant, Thai Rock. From the dock, we will cruise through the mooring field to Deliverance. We got the rest!

Jarad is the man! Doesn't get better than going out on a clear blue sky with a steady 20 knots of wind and beautiful schooner splitting the water, with all the sails out. Definitely recommend!
