Here's the plan...
Your cruise departs from North Cove Marina, where you will board the elegant vintage schooner Shearwater. Built at the height of Roaring Twenties, 82-foot ‘Shearwater’ was the personal yacht of Charles E. Dunlap, a prominent New York City industrialist. She is superbly maintained, with sparkling paintwork, polished brass portholes and chrome trim. Her large Rangoon teak decks offer plenty of space for sitting and relaxing.
You will sail quietly past the Statue of Liberty, the Bridges and the historic sites of New York Harbor. Admire the famous Manhattan skyline from the fine teak decks as you enjoy a complimentary drink served by the crew.
If you wish you can take part in some hands-on activities such as taking a turn at the helm and help raise the sails.
