Doug Foster started Nyack Boat Charter with Rob Bellanich in 2015, and now is sole owner.
Captain Kevin O’Donnell is a licensed 100 ton master captain and has been the primary captain for most sailing charters on Al Vento. Kevin is also in charge of much of the overall operations.
Captain Dave DeVries has deep experience and is a licensed captain both off-shore and inland. Dave is the primary captain on Andiamo, and also helps Kevin on Al Vento.
We are lucky to have a great group of crew members. All are happy to make your sail or cruise as comfortable, safe and fun as possible.
Rob Bellanich co-founded Nyack Boat Charter, and owns and operates NY Boat Charter with his wife Lezlee Peterzell-Bellanich.
Starting Nyack Boat Charter was a natural fit for Doug and Rob. It was a way to connect their experience and passion for sailing and chartering, and working to re-connect Nyack with the Hudson river.
Although Rob is no longer one of the owners, he is still a part of Nyack Boat Charter and always there to help.
If you have a large group for a party on the Hudson, NY Boat Charter has a beautiful yacht for you for up to 180 people. Call 888-755-BOAT (2628)
