The Black Swan

36′ Catalina Tall Rig Fin Keel Monohull Sailboat

There is plenty of space on the Black Swan. The cockpit boasts two catbird seats allowing you a great view of the Hudson River and the Catskill Mountains as well as comfortable cushioned bench seats with a teak table for entertaining. We have two comfortable lounge chairs that can be placed on the front deck for a private quiet place. There is a large cabin below to stow your gear and a fridge on board for cold storage. You are welcome to bring food or drink on your sail or we offer a Charter Menu from Black Eyed Suzie’s that is sure to please – but must be ordered a week in advance.




Captain Robert Henderson

U.S.C.G. OUPV Captain’s License

Rob has owned boats for over thirty years. He grew up on Long Island sailing the Great South Bay and the Long Island Sound. He was a clammer for many years and spent some time on a commercial clam rig. Cabin cruisers were his first choice until he made a trip to Portsmouth, NH in 1990 and realized that every night when he came in the sailboats were not far behind — and they had not spent much on fuel. He started sailing and has owned sailboats ever since.

In 2023, Rob sailed the Black Swan to Florida for the winter and then back home to Kingston in the spring. Some of his past sails are to Portsmouth NH, Barnegat Light NJ, Greenport, Fire Island and Block Island.

Here are a few pictures from The Black Swan’s 2023 sail to Florida.
