When you travel with us, you can trust that we'll take care of you. Our top-notch services and amenities guarantee you'll have a relaxing time.


From the very first time aboard a sailboat, we were hooked.  We find great pleasure in teaching others the ways of boating and sharing that knowledge with anyone who is interested.

After much thought and continued growth the past 8 years, 2021 will be the final charter season for Frayed Knot Sailing Charters allowing us more personal cruising time. I will continue to be available for boat deliveries and lessons. Thank you very much to all who have helped make us successful. We look forward to seeing you on the water again this year!
