We went on the night cruise on the Adirondack. It was an amazing feeling to be skimming through the water in the dark with the lights of Manhattan, New Jersey, Brooklyn and The Statue of Liberty in the background. The crew were great, good sense of humour, great drinks service and just let you sit back and enjoy the experience,... More

We did the sunset sail on America 2 and it was fantastic. This is not a sightseeing cruise with narration, everyone just sits back and enjoys the view. The crew are very friendly and more than happy to answer questions and share interesting things about the city. We had Aiden looking after our section of the yacht and he was... More

After a hot summer day we took the evening cruise around down the tip of Manhattan. It was glorious! Big city lights, the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge - glasses of wine - light cool breeze - perfect end to a long hot day. Very nice staff. Even if I lived in NYC I'd do this.

I'm not sure how I've lived in NYC for almost 10 years and never knew about this. We took a ride on the America 2.0 for a late-summer sunset cruise from Chelsea Piers to the Statue of Liberty. The friendly and knowledgeable crew served three rounds of champagne/wine/beer, and we brought food with us. The views of the sunset over... More

My husband turned 60 and rather than going for another nice meal out, we took our adult children for the Sunday brunch on the Manhattan (September 13). The experience was special and unforgettable. There were other boats to choose from, but this line is like a boutique cruise. All of 40 people aboard. So we had our own table in... More

Absolutely fantastic experience. We did the Sunset Cruise and was absolutely blown away. We had a large lunch that day so did not take a picnic with us, but some couples did and it looked lovely. Crew were amazing and really good humour, very happy to answer all questions. The best sights we saw on this trip. NYC looked stunning... More

NYC never disappoints and sailing on the America 2.0 is a prime example of a good time. Weather conditions could not have been better: beautiful Sept. Evening with a light breeze. Definitely wear slacks and a windbreaker as it is always cooler on the water. Viewing the iconic landmarks lit up was a treat: Empire State and downtown buildings ,... More

We did the sunset sail on the America 2.0 schooner as an anniversary date, and so happy we did. The staff and crew are all friendly and knowledgeable, the boat is in excellent condition and well-handled, and the views are unbeatable. I've been living in NYC 6 years and I wouldn't hesitate to do this again. Had an absolute blast.

For our last full day in NYC we booked the brunch cruise. What a fantastic experience! The food was plentiful and delicious and the views all the way around Manhattan were gorgeous. The staff were amazing - friendly, helpful and very genuine. They were all happy to converse about everything from the architecture we were seeing, to the history of... More

Hi, Agreed! Brunch on our Yacht Manhattan is the perfect way to take in the city. The spread is wonderful! If you're feeling adventurous, check out our Brunch sail on the Schooner America 2.0 the next time you're in town. Thanks for coming out with us! Classic Harbor Line More

Perfect for entertaining business colleagues, I was invited along on this sailboat tour of the Hudson River by a company that I do a bit of work for. This two-hour sail (or by motor in the case of no wind) was relaxing and the team (captain and two additional staff) was fantastic. After a short safety briefing, we were under... More
