Dedicated to helping locals and visitors alike enjoy the unique wonders of New York City, Classic Harbor Line hopes for the privilege of escorting you on a relaxing, inspiring and breathtaking cruise through the waters we proudly call home. Our three classic yachts – the Schooner Adirondack and the Schooner America 2.0 (our sailboats), and the Luxury Yacht Manhattan (our motorized yacht) are reminiscent of the classic boats that cruised the NYC waters a hundred years ago.

What a superb way to see New York from the water ! A 2 hour cruise around the Statue of Liberty on a Classic 100ft Schooner. The boat is beautifully built (an "imagining" of the original America of America's cup fame) - captain & crew very friendly, plus 3 drinks included - which is just about right for the cruise....

We enjoyed the relaxed environment. The crew was very knowledgeable and helpful but did not feel the need to "sing and dance" for your entertainment. The sail and view was enjoyable enough. No gimmicks needed.

Great, memorable experience with knowledgeable guide, and great crew. Fantastic journey unravels New York's secrets both architectural and historical: how the city grew, urban planning, building technologies development, etc. Great for tourist and New Yorkers alike.

We keep on coming back to NYC and have just had our fourth Manhattan circumnavigation tour. There is always something new to see and hear about on this magical 'endless imagination' engineering/architectural waterfront.....end of term work of the 'best in class'! On the boat...different architects, different perspectives, different anecdotes keep it alive. This is the NYC we like best... we... More

Loads of great information, fun facts and history, great visuals, awesome time out on the water, very sleek and clean boat, awesome use of space, not crowded (so we got personal attention). The tour is frankly one of the best things I did in NYC. The champagne and appetizers on board were the cherry on top! The crew and guide... More

The Manhattan II is a beautiful boat, tailor made to site seeing. The cabin had large windows on all sides and the deck was spacious enough to accommodate 18+ people. The crew was very accommodating and polite. Our docent was very knowledgeable about NYC history and its buildings. There was some times when he could have shared more information, but... More

I have made this trip several times. It is the best place to take out-of-town visitors. Everything is a level above what the other boat lines offer.

I went on the Manhattan II sunset cruise with my entire staff. We had an amazing time! The staff and crew were so friendly and attentive. I would go again, and again, and again! My staff had a wonderful experience and they got to see a ton of Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty and all the bridges! A perfect outing!
