About SIREN & ONDINE
SIREN & ONDINE
Originally the tender to KELPIE, the 2017 built SIREN established her own identity as the Hamptons first private boat charter certified to carry over 6 passengers (she’s Coast Guard certified for 16 guests, although we limit to 14 for increased speed & stability). In response to a rising demand along the East End, Le Launch acquired a second, identical launch whom we call ONDINE.
SIREN & ONDINE’S teak accents and classic, yacht club launch style, combined with Yacht Kelpie’s attention to detail and service make these bateaux the most stylish water taxis to travel the Hamptons waterways.
Certifications and Licenses
Coast Guard regulations for a T-Boat (SIREN’s Coast Guard classification) are stringent and unapologetic. Skippers are part of a drug consortium, complying with random testing anywhere in the world. In addition, they have been trained extensively in fire-fighting, life-saving, crowd control and crisis management by U.S. Coast Guard certified schools.
All skippers hold licenses exceeding the required. While our launches barely reach 4 tons, their skippers hold a minimum of 100-ton Masters licenses for Inspected Passenger Vessels internationally.
We look forward to pampering you out on the water aboard the lovely SIREN & ONDINE!
