Slip out into Hudson River and see the world's most famous skyline light up the night from the deck of the historic schooner Shearwater. The bustle and noise of the city turns to silence as we cut the engines and unfurl our sails for a tranquil 90-minute cruise. Enjoy breathtaking close-up views of the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, Ellis Island and other gems or the harbor while relaxing on deck with a drink in hand.

Shearwater was hand-built in 1929 from native hardwoods. The 82-foot schooner is a throwback to a bygone era of yachting. Having sailed around the world twice and called over half a dozen major ports home in her time on the water, Shearwater has been taking New Yorkers and the city's visitors sailing in the harbor since 2001. She was named a national historic landmark in 2009 and her gorgeous original teak deck and mahogany interior are a testament to the beautiful handiwork not seen on more modern sailing ships.
