The "ship" was beautiful and a perfect place to "race" as well as view the race. The crew was outstanding: congenial and helpful. The day itself was fantastic. Although it looked like there would be sufficient wind, by the time we got to the start near Battery Park the wind had largely died down. Finally it was decided to motor our way. There is nothing like seeing the sights of New York City from a boat, a beautiful sailing ship, no less. We went up the East River beyond the Brooklyn Bridge and around New York Harbor to the Statue of Liberty and back up the Hudson to Chelsea Piers. Liquid refreshments aboard were generous. Overall, a truly memorable experience. Well worth the cost.
Complimentary champagne, wine, beer and soda will be provided. (The ship will serve a few rounds, but it is not an unlimited booze-cruise. The aim is to create an elegant, relaxing, peaceful, and safe experience for all guests.)
About the Ticket Supplier: Classic Harbor Line LLC
Built in 1994 in the Scarano Boat Building of Albany, New York, the Schooner Adirondack is an 80-foot wooden replica of a classic turn-of-the-century pilot schooner.
Heading south from Chelsea Piers and down the Hudson River to Battery Park, the Schooner Adirondack passes by Ellis Island and sails out to the Statue of Liberty. Wind and time permitting, she will head toward Governor’s Island, breeze by the Financial District and the Brooklyn Bridge on the East River.
The 1920s-style motor yacht “Manhattan,” also built by Scarano Boat Building, is brand new to the New York City harbor as of spring 2006. This 80-foot, wood-trimmed, Gilded Era commuter yacht runs full circumnavigations of Manhattan, dinner cruises and sunset cruises, and is available for private charter.
