Spring of ’18 is near and we can’t wait to get back under sail with you! 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 wedding present, you probably have a lot of questions. Here is the who, what where, when how and why of the classic yacht Lady Patty!
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 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.
Why 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.
Hello and welcome to ladypatty.com, our little corner of the world, wide web!

We will be sailing at least once a day through the weekdays and Friday then three times on Saturday offering private charters, public sailing on the Chesapeake aboard Lady Patty. Check out the days, times and weather below:
Wednesday – Clear, high of 86, wind 8-10 knots from the West. Private charter early, then our Champagne Sunset Sail from 6:30-8:30, plenty of room on that sail.
– Partly sunny, chance of thunderstorms, high of 81, wind 5-7 from the WNW. We have plenty of room on our Champagne Sunset Sail from 6:30-8:30. Try one of our Sunset Gold fresh squeezed lime juice margaritas…cheers!

We will offer our Morning Sail from 10-12, Afternoon Sail 1-3 and our always popular Champagne Sunset Sail from 6:30-8:30. There is still room on this trip but because it looks like the best weather of the day it’s booking quickly. Check out our schedule and buy tickets here.

Thanks again for checking us out! I hope you have a wonderful visit to Talbot County on the Eastern Shore.
The geese are forming up in Vs to leave, the osprey should show up on the Bay any day now and I, like them, am getting a bad case of the Spring Fever!
The boat yard will be crazy with activity as all of we boat-nuts take the winter covers off and begin this season’s projects. For us that is a pretty major deck job that will be taking place beginning later this month.
We plan to have the project completed by the middle of April so we are calling the 25th the big opening of 2014!
Stop by and offer encouragement at the boat yard or join us for the maiden sail of the year. Either way we look forward to seeing you…Cheers!
