About the Zephyr
Docked at Haverstraw Marina on the Hudson River, the Zephyr is the largest sailboat in the Bergen SEAS fleet. With a production run of more than 20 years and over 6,600 boats produced, the Catalina 27' surely ranks as the most popular cruising sailboat built to date. With its fixed keel, pedestal mounted wheel, inboard diesel engine, large salon & roomy cockpit, the Zephyr is simply a pleasure to sail.
SEAS offers open sails, keelboat courses, 7 day & 5 day a week on line reservation passes and plenty of qualified skippers who thoroughly enjoy sailing with both experienced sailors and "never been on a boat before" crew. The long Hudson sailing season starts in May and lasts till November. The spectacular coastline views, the steady winds and the wide variety of both commercial and leisure traffic on the Hudson, always make sailing on the Zephyr FUN!
Our 27' Catalina is the ideal step up for SEAS basic sailing students
and our O'Day 19' sailors wanting to learn and enjoy a bigger boat on
a larger body of water!
