47' Leopard Sailing Catamaran on Clear Lake/Galveston Bay for up to 12 guests

We had a great time with Terry and Wayne! Terry is a professional captain, very friendly and accommodating since we arrived at the decking station. We are looking into sailing lessons with him! The ship is also great and has an interesting story behind it, book your trip with them to find out more!

Had 12 guys on a golf trip from the Philly area. We booked this boat with Terry to break up the golf a bit. This was the best experience ever. Terry and Suzie were just amazing with response time and info, communication was a breeze! The boat is freaking awesome. It's not a standard plain catamaran, it's huge. Price was fantastic, we purchased beer at the dock, Terry and crew had fridge space and cooler space for us. The crew had trash bags as well. They allowed us to connect Bluetooth music for the trip. I can't stress enough how smooth terry made the trip. We literally got on the boat and was able to enjoy immediately. Would absolutely recommend or book again.

Excellent from beginning to end ! Excellent communication, friendly and nice! Thank you so much for such a great experience and helping make a great bachelorette weekend possible ! 5 stars I will recommend using the flying pig for any future travels to Houston !

Terry and his crew were absolutely wonderful to work with from start to finish. The communication was clear while scheduling. When I had to call regarding some questions he answered immediately and was able to answer them. While sailing he was a great captain, informing us of everything we needed to know while sailing - everything from how to use the toilet with a button, to storage and using the refrigerator, to setting up and confirming we were able to connect to their speakers before we left the dock. He gave us options on where to sail to based on what we wanted to see and do. He was friendly and joked around with us when we were around, but was content to give us our space as well and never forced himself into conversations. All around pleasant and personable. I highly recommend Terry and his beautiful catamaran to anyone looking for anyone looking to get away and go sailing. It was an all around exceptional experience from start to finish.

Me and my friends(8 of us) had an amazing time. Suzie was very accommodating and her communication from day one was excellent. Terry and Wayne were friendly but not intrusive. They were the perfect balance of giving our space and helpful in letting us have fun. They even tried their best to avoid the scattered storm to ensure or trip was a pleasant as possible. We went on the float mat which was fun and Wayne even jumped in to be our photographer 📸 😁 I (we) would highly recommend using their services. 10/10 on all fonts!

Terry and Suzie love to sail, whether it’s going on an afternoon outing, a sunset cruise, watching the beautiful firework shows on Galveston Bay, or island hopping in the British Virgin Islands. They both love sailing and chartering so much they decided to open their own sailing school and yacht charter business in 2019 and share their passion with their friends.

Beautiful catamaran sailing in Galveston Bay

My wife and I scheduled a 3 hour morning cruise with Captain Matt on a Thursday and were pleasantly surprised that the charter went on as scheduled since only three people showed up. Captain Matt was a great host and really went out of his way to make sure we had an enjoyable time. It was a wonderful day on the Bay with plenty of sunshine and the right amount of wind which made for a great sailing experience. The beverages were cold and good with quite a selection to choose from and the music Captain Matt played via his phone was both relaxing and fit the sailing theme. Captain Matt was quite the coversationalist and had many stories to share with us, which kept us laughing all the while. Afterwards, my wife and I laid out on the front of the Cat relaxing and listening to music while not paying attention to the time when Captain Matt asked if we had any plans to be anywhere. As it turns out, our cruise had run over by about 40 minutes or so and Captain Matt gave us the option of motoring to get us back sooner or just leisurely sailing back; of course we opted for the second choice. All total, this amounted to an additional hour out on the water. We are very thankful for the sailing experience we had with Captain Matt and look forward to doing it again...perhaps we will do the Sunset tour next time...I highly recommend Sailaway Clear Lake charters and Captain Matt for all your charter sailing needs.

My hub & I wanted a relaxing, educational & just plain fun experience sailing in Clearlake/Galveston Bay. The hub had been on a regular small sailboat before, but neither of us had been on a catamaran. It is so smooth yet exciting...the boat is clean & so comfortable. Best of all is the professional & personableness of Captain Matt. We enjoyed his company & conversation, also his selection of music. He even extended our cruise for longer than we planned! We couldn't have asked for better & will be back!

catamaran cruise galveston

Last Saturday my family went out with Captain Matt. He was ready for us and the perfect captain. Some of the family wanted instruction on how to sail, and Matt was great. We all had a great experience and would definitely rent from him again.

Matt is as equally a wonderful host as he is a Captain. We took a sunset charter, brought a picnic (we forgot paper plates but Matt had a stash) and enjoyed a three hour sailing cruise. The boat is clean, safe and can comfortably accommodate a group of people. He has a great music system as well. Looking for a relaxing time on the water with a great Captain and boat? Call Matt.

catamaran cruise galveston

My boyfriend and I have been dating for 5 years and surprised me on our anniversary by taking me sailing. Captain Matt was so accommodating and polite. He made sure everything was perfect especially since my bf proposed out on the water! Perfect day!

My husband and I booked a 3 hour ride. The captain was so nice and accommodating the entire time. The boat was extremely clean and we'll kept. I really liked that he let us Bluetooth our phone to the speaker system and play our own music. Very professional and hospitable. We would definitely book again.

Boat & Catamaran charter in Galveston  - Yacht Rental

Boat & Catamaran charter in Galveston - Yacht Rental

Galveston yacht rental.

Galveston, a jewel of the Texas Gulf Coast, beckons with its rich maritime legacy, warm Gulf breezes, and shimmering waters. As the rhythmic waves lap against its shores, the allure of the sea is undeniable. Yachting.Rent offers you the golden opportunity to harness this allure, presenting an exquisite range of yachts to navigate the waters surrounding this historic island city. From sun-soaked beachfronts to the bustling harbor brimming with history, our yacht rentals promise an unforgettable voyage tailored to the very essence of Galveston.

A journey through Galveston’s waters aboard a Yachting.Rent vessel reveals the multifaceted beauty of this coastal haven. To the east, the vast expanse of the Gulf of Mexico opens up, offering adventurous sailors an unbridled experience of the open sea. Here, the horizon stretches infinitely, occasionally graced by playful dolphins or the distant silhouette of oil rigs, adding to the Gulf’s distinctive maritime tapestry. Nearer to the island, Galveston Bay unfurls—a calmer water body perfect for those looking for a leisurely sail, perhaps accompanied by a mesmerizing Texan sunset or a view of the historic Seawall Boulevard from a new perspective. The myriad waterways, inlets, and bays that perforate the area ensure that every voyage holds the promise of discovery, whether it’s a secluded anchoring spot or a bustling marina pulsing with coastal energy.

Yet, what truly elevates the Yachting.Rent experience is our meticulous attention to detail and our passion for seamanship. Our fleet, curated to suit a plethora of maritime aspirations, ranges from luxurious yachts perfect for opulent celebrations to nimble sailboats that cater to the purist sailor. Each vessel is maintained with an unwavering commitment to safety and comfort.

About Galveston

Why is Galveston a good sailing destination?

The allure of the Gulf of Mexico, with its vast azure expanse and sun-kissed shores, has beckoned sailors for centuries. Nestled on its edge is Galveston, Texas, a maritime gem that embodies the quintessential charm of the Gulf Coast. With Yachting.Rent as your nautical guide, delve into the reasons why Galveston stands as one of the most coveted sailing destinations, combining nature, history, and modern-day amenities in a nautical ballet of experiences.

Galveston’s geographical location gifts it a unique maritime identity. Sandwiched between the sprawling Galveston Bay and the majestic Gulf of Mexico, the city boasts diverse sailing environments, catering to both the novice sailor and the experienced mariner. As you set sail into the bay, calm waters greet you, offering a perfect setting for leisurely sailing, fishing, or simply anchoring to savor a Texan sunset. The bay is dotted with islands, marinas, and waterfront establishments, ensuring that every sailing expedition is peppered with discoveries, be it a secluded beach or a vibrant dockside eatery. For the more adventurous, the Gulf of Mexico awaits, presenting an expanse where the horizon stretches endlessly, and where the spirit of exploration is unbridled. Here, the possibility of spotting playful dolphins, majestic whales, or even engaging in deep-sea fishing amplifies the thrill of the voyage.

Yet, sailing in Galveston is not merely about navigating its waters; it’s about immersing in the city’s rich tapestry of history and culture. Galveston, with its storied past, resonates with maritime tales that span centuries. Historic harbors, lighthouses, and maritime museums dot the shoreline, each narrating tales of yesteryears. As you dock and explore, you’re transported back in time, walking through streets lined with Victorian architecture, or perhaps indulging in local seafood delicacies that carry the flavor of the Gulf. Yachting.Rent ensures that your journey integrates these elements, crafting an experience that’s as enriching on land as it is at sea.

Complementing the natural and historical charms is Galveston’s modern-day infrastructure tailored for sailors. State-of-the-art marinas equipped with contemporary amenities, skilled repair and maintenance facilities, and an array of waterfront accommodations ensure that every need of the modern-day sailor is catered to. Whether you’re looking for a short-term berth, require technical assistance, or simply wish to connect with fellow sailors, Galveston’s maritime community is both welcoming and well-equipped. With Yachting.Rent by your side, every logistical aspect, from chartering the perfect yacht to suggesting anchorages or curating land expeditions, is handled with expertise and passion.

In essence, Galveston isn’t just a sailing destination; it’s a nautical odyssey that promises a harmonious blend of nature, history, and luxury. With the Gulf’s whispers as its soundtrack and the Texan sun as its spotlight, Galveston invites sailors to a dance where every wave, every breeze, and every sunset becomes a stanza in a maritime poem. Yachting.Rent, with its commitment to curating unparalleled sailing experiences, is your compass, guiding you through Galveston’s nautical wonders, ensuring that each voyage becomes a cherished memory.

What Choose

Sailing boat or Catamaran, what to sail in Galveston

In the vibrant maritime realm of Galveston, Texas, where the Gulf of Mexico’s vastness meets the tranquil embrace of Galveston Bay, the decision of vessel selection can significantly shape your sailing experience. At Yachting.Rent, we understand the nuances of sailing and aim to provide our patrons with insights that ensure their nautical adventures are not just memorable but tailored perfectly to their vision. In the heart of this endeavor is the age-old question: to opt for a sailing boat or a catamaran when exploring the waters of Galveston?

The traditional sailing boat, with its single hull and iconic silhouette, is a symbol of classic maritime elegance. As you hoist its sails and catch the Gulf winds, the boat responds with an intimate connection to the water, offering a tactile feel of the waves and currents beneath. This close communion with the sea allows sailors to truly immerse in the rhythms of the ocean. For those seeking a more authentic and hands-on sailing experience, where the art of navigation and seamanship plays a pivotal role, sailing boats are the vessels of choice. Their sleek design allows for deft maneuvers, especially when navigating through Galveston’s myriad of islands, bays, and inlets. Additionally, the deep keel of these boats provides stability, making them ideal for ventures further into the Gulf, where waters can be more unpredictable.

On the other hand, catamarans, with their twin hulls and expansive decks, offer a different kind of maritime allure. Their design inherently provides more stability, significantly reducing the rolling motion commonly experienced on monohulls. This makes catamarans an excellent choice for those who prioritize comfort or are new to the world of sailing. The wide deck space is perfect for sunbathing, social gatherings, or simply relishing the panoramic vistas of the Texan coastline. The shallow draft of catamarans also presents an advantage when exploring Galveston’s coastal regions, allowing sailors to anchor closer to beaches or navigate shallower waters with ease. Additionally, catamarans often come equipped with modern amenities, ensuring that luxury and comfort are not compromised, even in the heart of the sea.

Given the contrasting attributes of both vessels, the choice truly hinges on the kind of maritime experience one seeks in Galveston. For the purists, who yearn for the age-old dance between wind, sail, and sea, the sailing boat is a canvas that allows them to paint their nautical tales. For those seeking a blend of adventure and relaxation, where the journey is as luxurious as the destinations explored, the catamaran stands as a floating oasis of opulence and comfort.

$142 million cruise terminal planned for Port of Galveston in 2025

Yet another cruise line is moving to Galveston, with a sprawling new terminal to match.

The Port of Galveston announced Tuesday it had reached an agreement with MSC Cruises to build a 165,000-square-foot terminal complex to accommodate the MSC Seascape, which is scheduled to begin sailing from its new homeport in November 2025.

According to the port’s news release, the new terminal at Pier 16 will include a converted cargo warehouse, parking garage, internal roadway and “other improvements.” For perspective, that’s about midway between the port’s newest major addition, the Royal Caribbean terminal at Pier 10, which opened in November 2022; and the proposed new home of the Battleship Texas at Pier 21.

“Adding MSC to our family of cruise lines offers our cruise guests an elegant, European-style family cruise experience,” port director and Galveston Wharves CEO Rodger Rees said in the release. “It also elevates our status as a top U.S. cruise home port and moves us up to the eighth largest cruise port in the global market, while paving the way for MSC to reach millions of cruise passengers in the Central U.S.”

The estimated cost of the project is $142 million, to be paid for by the port’s cash reserves and revenue bonds. The port’s 20-year agreement includes four five-year extension options, the release said, and allows the port to negotiate use of the new terminal with other cruise lines pending availability.

MSC Cruises is the leisure-focused division of the Geneva-based MSC Shipping, a family-owned operation that is now the world’s largest container-shipping company. According to Marine Insight , it took over the top spot from Maersk after adding nearly 100 ships to its fleet last year.

“We want to give more guests the opportunity to experience MSC Cruises’ unique European flavor, and bringing MSC Seascape to Galveston allows us to be more accessible to millions of people in the central part of the country,” MSC Cruises USA President Rubén A. Rodríguez said in a statement. “A great cruise starts with a top-notch terminal, and we’re excited to partner with the Galveston Wharves to ensure our guests enjoy the experience from end to end.”

The port expects more than 1.6 million cruise passengers to sail out of Galveston this year, Rees added. Tuesday’s announcement brings the number of cruise lines operating out of Galveston to six, with MSC joining Carnival, Disney, Norwegian, Princess and Royal Caribbean. Eight different ships are headed to the Caribbean this week alone. 

Christened in 2022, the Seascape itself can accommodate nearly 5,200 passengers and offers 11 dining venues, 20 bars and lounges, 13 pools and water features and more than 130 “Yacht Club” luxury suites. A number of design elements wink at New York City, among them the nearly ten-foot Statue of Liberty replica in the casino and the "Times Square" retail/entertainment area. Other attractions include an infinity pool overlooking the ocean; the Aurea spa; the Robotron, a roller coaster shaped like a robotic arm; and the Pirates Cove Aquapark.

“As big as the ship is, it features a smart layout with plenty of nooks and crannies that enable you to find the right spot to revel or relax, at your leisure,” wrote the trade website Cruise Critic .
