We offer drink service on board and can arrange to have food catered by one of our fine, local eateries. We’ll even pick it up and serve it when you’re ready. Margaritas anyone?

Lady Patty is a beautiful setting for the bridal party to toast the newlyweds after the ceremony, Join us for a sail with your photographer to have images of you surrounded by your friends and family,  varnished teak, billowing sails and the natural beauty that is the Chesapeake Bay.

Who wants a limo when you can leave your reception aboard a classic yacht? Sail off into the sunset while sipping champagne with the love of your life.

Whatever type of wedding season excursion you choose, Lady Patty offers her guests a perfect setting for memories and photographs that will be cherished for a lifetime.

Lady Patty is back in business and better than ever!

Fall sailing on the Chesapeake Bay aboard the classic yacht Lady Patty. Available for private charters and public sailing from Tilghman Island, MarylandHello all,

As some of you may know, the Lady Patty  suffered some damage to her mizzen mast and rigging over the Memorial Day Weekend! I know, right? That’s a heck of a way to start off her 80th year in existence. The great news is that the meticulous repairs over the last two weeks has returned her to her usual safe, able and sea-worthy status as the longest operated charter sailing yacht in Talbot County!

Join us this weekend to beat the heat in the coolest way possible; under 1100 square feet of sail with a fresh-squeezed margarita in hand on the wide open and beautiful Chesapeake Bay.

We have plenty of room on our Friday Champagne Sunset Sail and on all three trips on Saturday(10-12, 1-3 and 6:30-8:30). There is still room on the Sunday morning Mimosa Sail from 10-12. Buy your tickets here or call our office at 410.886,1127. We’ll answer any questions that you might have then sign you up for a wonderful sail aboard the classic yacht, Lady Patty!

Ask us about our reduced kid rates and our military, law enforcement and fire fighter discount.

I look forward to sailing with you.

Cheers!

Jeff

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!

Thank you for a fantastic 2017 sailing season but like all other good things, this too must end. We are closing a little early this year but fear not…we will be back on the water in the Spring. We are very excited and proud to announce that  Lady Patty will be available for charters with former First Mate, now Master Captain Emma Brown sharing time the helm.

If your planning your Summer get-away for 2018 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 DSC I’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 harbor IMG_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

Early Spring Update from Lady Patty

IMG_1558-2

Hello travelers,

Spring is coming my friends so hold on a little longer!

We will be finishing a pretty major deck job on the ol’ girl as the weather warms up so we probably won’t be open for charters until later in April.

We are excited about 2014 and believe it will be a banner year for Tilghman Island and Lady Patty. E-tickets are available now under the public sailing tab. You should start making your plans now to join us for a real sailing experience aboard an amazing old yacht out on the beautiful Chesapeake Bay!

I look forward to sailing with you.

Cheers!
