Captain Dirk and
First Mate Sandy

Meet Captain Dirk and First Mate Sandy DeLo and share in their passion for boating, fun and adventure!

Dirk is a USCG certified Captain and lifelong sailor with a special love for all things nautical.  He started sailing solo at 5 years old and has been leading yacht charters around the world for over 25 years!  Some of his favorite destinations are French Polynesia and the British Virgin Islands.


Sandy began sailing in college and has never looked back!  She loves entertaining and introducing people to the seafaring lifestyle!  She likes to get creative in the galley and serve up tasty snacks and treats to the guests.

In 2007, Dirk and Sandy founded Cool Cat Charters LLC, in the Virgin Islands, where S/V Catatonic is the flagship of the fleet.  She enjoys a reputation as one of the most popular, most fun and busiest charter sailing yachts in the US and British Virgin Islands.

After sailing Catatonic from the Caribbean to New York in 2010, they decided to expand their charter service to their home waters in New York City and Long Island Sound and introduced Knotty Kitty into the fleet.  

Enjoy a sunset cruise in New York Harbor to visit the Statue of Liberty, see the beautiful bridges that span the river, sip fantastic cocktails and sample delicious snacks.  We love to meet new friends and we can't wait to have you aboard!
