Nyack Boat Charter is owned by Doug Foster and Captain Rob Bellanich.
Rob owns and operates NY Boat Charter with his wife Lezlee Peterzell-Bellanich.
Doug is an entrepreneur, a web developer, an urban planner, and has been sailing his whole life.
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.
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.
Captain Tony Lamorticella has a 100 ton master license and is our primary captain on the Festiva.
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.
