New Jersey Sailing Center (NJSC) was founded…
to share the wonder and enjoyment of sailing in New Jersey and being one with the wind and the water. Our sailing area in Sandy Hook Bay is rich in history and natural beauty. Captain Keith is an American Sailing Association (ASA) certified Sailing Instructor and a licensed United States Coast Guard (USCG) Captain.
Captain Keith developed his love of sailing from the early age of 5 on-board his father's 25 foot sailboat Pleiades. He learned to sail out of Marion, MA in Buzzards Bay, Cape Cod, Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard and as far north as Bar Harbor, ME. He now enjoys sailing in the area of New Jersey as well as cruising to various harbors around Long Island Sound. Captain Keith founded this Charter and Delivery company to offer skilled captained services and to provide relaxing private group sailing charters that break the mold of traditional Captained Charters.
Our Beautiful Catalina 380
The Catalina 380 is designed to incorporate the performance, accommodations, and features which experienced sailors consider important. All aspects of the Catalina 380 - the securely stayed rig - reflect a sailing lifestyle. The Catalina 380 is sensibly equipped with an offshore-capable rig with double spreader mast, inline uppers, intermediates, fore and aft lowers, forestay, and backstay. For the crew, the standard cockpit table comes with two drop leafs, beverage storage, and foot rest. Steering is traditional pedestal layout with stainless guard and a 5-inch compass with stainless binnacle. The wide weather decks are textured nonskid, gently angled surfaces without sharp corners. The oversize stem boarding ladder leads to a hot and cold fresh water shower and two large storage lockers. Below deck the varnished teak interior bulkheads, cabinets, and joinery speak of the quality that goes into making the Catalina 380. Nine opening hatches assure abundant light and ventilation throughout the main cabin. The teak navigation desk is mid ships. It comes with a swivel chair and plenty of space. The owner's cabin aft is highlighted by the oversize double berth, with numerous storage bins and lockers within arm's reach. Two separate dressing areas, each with upholstered seat and hanging locker, allow plenty of room to move about in this private retreat. The spacious owner's cabin features numerous lockers, cabinets, and drawers. The reading lamps, abundant natural light and ventilation, and comfortable seating make this cabin an inviting retreat. The L-shaped galley is built for efficient food preparation and quick, easy clean-up. There is plenty of galley storage in the four large over-counter cabinets; the large, dry food bin; and the generous ice box. Both forward and aft cabins have double berths and generous hanging lockers, with plenty of adjacent storage. A private entrance from the owner's cabin leads to the ultra modern head. This bright, airy compartment has the luxury of an enclosed shower with one-piece acrylic door. A separate sink and vanity is provided for family or guests in the forward cabin, along with numerous drawers and shelves for storage of personal items while aboard. The galley has all the latest conveniences and the space to prepare gourmet meals aboard. Amenities include a three-burner stainless gimbaled LP gas stove with oven, polished stainless double sink, and truly cavernous icebox with convenient front access door. Meal preparation and clean-up are easy with custom molded one-piece countertops and an integrated countertop butcher block - trash chute.
