Full description
Join us aboard the Shearwater for a thrilling way to visit New York’s magnificent harbor. These 90-minute day sails offer the perfect opportunity to sit back and relax while you take in close-up views of the Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island. Celebrate the intimate and spectacular beauty of the Statue of Liberty & Manhattan's skyline from the decks of a magnificent 82-foot Schooner. With sails unfurled, you will enjoy the casual elegance of a refreshing beverage served by our attentive crew as this ocean tested ship glides comfortably through world famous NY harbor. Shearwater is an 82-foot vintage 1920's schooner built at the height of the Roaring Twenties as the personal yacht of Charles E. Dunlap, a prominent New York City industrialist, back in a time when yachting was a rare combination of elegance and adventure. Shearwater was recognized as a national landmark in March 2009. Rangoon teak decks and mahogany paneled staterooms below are sure to impress even the seasoned yachtsmen.

    New York from a completely different perspective. I liked it

    Would have liked it if the guides had not only been concerned with themselves, but also given a few sentences about the attraction on the left and right. Not that you don't know things, but that would have made the whole thing a bit more personal. There was also no free drink

    Nice trip

    A trip that is highly recommended when the weather is nice. A nice boat with a nice crew. The boat only allows a limited number of passengers, which in contrast to the larger boats / ferry makes it quite exclusive. However, it should be mentioned that not all existing drinks are included as an inclusive drink. Corona as a beer doesn't seem to be one of them ?!

    Die Crew ist nett und bemüht aber die Getränke sind teuer an Bord (Dose Bier 8$/ Wein im Becher für 10$) Ich dachte auch eigentlich, ein Getränk sei inklusive aber vielleicht hab ich das falsch gelesen. Sitzplätze sind okay aber nicht allzu komfortabel. Tour ist dennoch kurzweilig und man kommt auch gut und nah an die Statue of Liberty heran. Alles in allem ein nettes Erlebnis und der Hafen ist gut zu erreichen. Für SegelbootFans auf jeden Fall ein MUST!
