Welcome to Sail Escape

I am Wayne Esser and I own ESCAPE. I spent most of my life South of Houston growing up on and around Galveston Bay where I spent most of my youth on a boat, both sailing and power. I moved to the DC/MD/VA area in 2008 and joined a boat club that gave me access to the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River. It was a great opportunity to

get to know the area and the waters. But, there came a point when using other peoples boats just wasn’t doing it for me. I purchased ESCAPE 2 years ago and brought it up from North Carolina. Last year I met Shawn Owen at Chronic Sailing and have been working with Shawn chartering the first time. We are passionate about creating unforgettable experiences on the water. Whether you are seeking a relaxing cruise or an adventurous sailing trip, we will create the perfect charter for you. With our fleet of luxury boats and experienced crew, we guarantee an exceptional journey that will leave you with lasting memories.

There is only one thing we put ahead of customer satisfaction, and that is safety. Our captains are highly skilled and knowledgeable, they are all U.S. Coast Guard licensed and totally focused on getting everyone back to the dock safely. You should expect a complete safety briefing once onboard and a captain that can answer any concerns you may have. Our goal is to ensure a safe, smooth and enjoyable voyage. We offer a wide range of charters, including sunset sails, destination trips, and special event excursions. Whatever your preference, Sail Escape has the ideal charter to meet your needs. We have a 5 Star rating on BoatSetter. Click here to check out our rates and packages.

We loved our time on Wayne’s boat for my husband’s 50th. It was very well maintained, with an expert crew! I would charter with him again in a heartbeat!–Catherine

Captain and his mate were awesome! The boat was in great shape and was absolutely perfect for our large group. We will absolutely be looking to book this same boat whenever we visit Annapolis again.–Josh
