New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractionsâ€”and enough personalityâ€”to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
Day or night, celebrate the intimate and spectacular beauty of the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan skyline from the decks of a magnificent 82-foot vintage 1920s schooner. Built as the personal yacht of Charles E. Dunlap, a prominent New York City industrialist, Shearwater boasts Rangoon teak decks and mahogany-paneled staterooms below—sure to impress even seasoned yachtsmen. Enjoy the casual elegance of a refreshing beverage served by the attentive crew as the ship glides comfortably through world-famous New York Harbor. Depending on the winds and tides, the captain may also sail up the Buttermilk Channel or to the Verrazano Bridge. Shearwater offers 90-minute to two-hour public sails and can also be booked for private parties.
