What To Expect
See the New York skyline like you've never seen before! See the city illuminate up aboard the City Clipper and join us for the sailing experience of a lifetime.
The Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, and Ellis Island with the moon and cityscape reflected on the water is not to be missed! You can sit back and relax or help us raise the sails and take a turn at the helm! Order a drink from our full on-deck bar as we set sail, drop canvas, cut the engines and ply the harbor like they did more than a century ago.
Clipper City imposing 158-ft. long, with masts and rigging reaching up 120 feet from the water, New York's largest and most impressive sailing vessel can accommodate up to 134 passengers. A replica of the lumber-hauling schooners that drove America's industry more than a century ago, Clipper City was built in the mid-1980s using plans purchased from the Smithsonian. Designed with her new cargo in mind (i.e. you), her decks are spacious and comfortable, with ample seating, a full bar amidships and a raised quarter deck back aft that allows for unparalleled views of the city and its harbor.
