You will join us in Battery Park, Slip 2 for a nighttime skyline sail filled with beautiful sights...!! After a quick safety speech, you will be handed off to the MC for the evening and the crew will set themselves to raising the sails and getting underway. Order a tasty cocktail and take in the skyline in between the performances. Our incredible new series, hosted by renowned entertainer Shien Lee with Dances of Vice. Features a scintillating burlesque, variety show & drink specials all with a backdrop of the NYC skyline at night - the show and the sail take place under the serene and watchful gaze of Lady Liberty. So close you could (almost) reach out and touch it... We sail around the harbor while you enjoy the show. It is a different theme each month. You are on the water for approx. 2 hours. Truly stunning...
Your host will be me. I have offered unique specialty sails since 2001; I take real pride in offering an intimate, casual experiences here in NY harbor. You will avoid the intense crowds of larger boats or land-based viewing options. I am a born and bred NYer & first began volunteering aboard an historic sailboat in NY Harbor over 30 years ago. I hold a USCG issued 100-ton captain's licenses; I have been sharing my love of sailing large vintage schooners under the majestic gaze of the Statue of Liberty and the NY Skyline with locals and visitors to NY for the past 19 years. My largest boat, the CLIPPER CITY, is a 158' replica of a pre-Civil War Era boat built in 1854; she sailed until 1892, and was the fastest and largest ship of her day.
Grab a drink at our full bar on board and enjoy the show!
Unparalleled views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governors Island, Colgate Clock, NY Skyline from the deck of a replica of a pre-Civil War Era Clipper Ship. We can get the sun to set just behind the Statue. Its epic and part of the experience!
