3 hours from New York and Philadelphia, 1.5 hours from DC & Baltimore. Minutes from St Michaels, Oxford, Easton, MD on Tilghman Island. The yacht Lady Patty

Hello travelers,

Welcome to LadyPatty.com!

Finally the warm Summer weather has arrived! This a perfect time to get out on the water.

If your planning your Summer get-away or looking for a gift Certificate as an awesome weddingreserve button present, you probably have a lot of questions. Here is the who, what where, when how and why of the classic yacht Lady Patty!

SONY DSCI’m Captain Jeffrey Mathias, owner and operator of the 1935 built offshore sailing yacht Lady Patty. We offer two-hour public sailing excursions and two-hour, half-day and full-day private charters for our guests to experience the magic of varnished teak, polished bronze, towering sails and the wide-open spaces of the Chesapeake Bay.

We are conveniently located just 3 hours from New York and Philadelphia, 1.5 hours from DC & Baltimore. Minutes from St Michaels, Oxford, Easton, MD on Tilghman Island. The yacht Lady Patty is in a perfect spot for our purposes. We motor for 5 minutes to the wide open Chesapeake Bay.

We pride ourselves on offering our guests a true yacht sailing experience. We don’t do harborIMG_1558-2 tours or historic narratives. We hoist over 1,100 square feet of sail and let the ol’ girl loose in her favorite environment.  Whether it’s a relaxing reach in 5 knots of breeze or sailing close hauled to windward in a brisk 15+ we enjoy sailing in its purest form. Of course a delicious boat drink like a fresh-squeezed margarita can help make your trip memorable, too.

 

friends of LPWhy should you choose a sail aboard the Lady Patty?

Because we think our area of the Chesapeake is one of the best sailing spots in the country. We love sailing aboard the historic yacht Lady Patty and we look forward to sharing this simple but beautiful lifestyle with you.

Cheers!

Jeff
