More Information


From the refined back deck of the _Manhattan_’s observatory, or from her outdoor teak decks on the mahogany-trimmed bow, get an up-close and personal view of the giant sailing vessels as they race across the harbor in the New York Classic Week Races. Although elegant and extremely comfortable, the Manhattan will have no trouble staying tight on the trail of the speeding sailing vessels, as she can cruise up to 22 knots. This trip also features great views of the New York City Skyline, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.

The open brunch includes a plentiful buffet spread of fresh baked bagels, muffins, pastries, seasonal fruit, glazed ham, spring mix salad, stuffed quiches, a waffle station with all the fixings, turkey sausage, spicy Bloody Marys, mimosas, juices, coffee and tea.

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.
