    Shearwater is a classic Newport-style schooner yacht, launched on May 4, 1929, but only recently recognized as a national landmark in 2009.
    Choose from one of three afternoon sails, enjoying beautiful views of New York City landmarks like the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, Governors Island, plus the New Jersey and New York City/Manhattan skylines.
    Celebrate a special occasion and/or get a unique view of New York City from the water.
