A Serenade for Lady Liberty

Guest on the deck of America 2.0 in NY Harbor for Jazz Cruise

“Classic Harbor Sunset Jazz Cruise new way to enjoy isle & waters of Manhattan”

– The Komisar Scoop

Statue of Liberty and Schooner America 2.0

At Classic Harbor Line, we pride ourselves on offering unique and unforgettable experiences on the water like our America 2.0 Jazz cruise. Recently featured in The Komisar Scoop, our Jazz Sail from Lower Manhattan to New York Harbor aboard the 105-foot sailing yacht, Schooner America 2.0, provided an evening to remember.

The Magic of the America 2.0 Jazz Cruise with Classic Harbor Line

As America 2.0 sailed close to the Statue of Liberty, our passengers were treated to an impromptu performance by a dozen members of the Paris-American Club. All of a sudden the group broke into “La Marseillaise” in honor of the French gift to America. This unexpected serenade added a charming and patriotic touch to the cruise, especially with Bastille Day just around the corner.

The main musical entertainment for the evening was a delightful mix of jazz tunes performed by the Boatband. Led by fan favorites Michael McGarril on saxophone, Christian Nourijanian on keyboard and Dustin Kaufman on drums. Undoubtedly, the band’s soft melodies provided the perfect backdrop for conversation and relaxation. Classics like “Blue Skies” were beautifully paired with modern favorites such as Otis Redding’s “The Dock of the Bay.”

Before the serenade, the journey began at Pier 62 at Chelsea Piers. Firstly following the stunning shoreline of the Financial District to New York Harbor and the iconic Statue of Liberty. Passengers were comfortably seated on benches along the port and starboard sides of the schooner. Those on board enjoyed a breathtaking sunset on the return trip.

The crew of America 2.0 added to the experience by hoisting sails and adjusting ropes. The crew also served complimentary beverages, including wine, beer, champagne, and soft drinks. Guests were welcome to bring their own snacks, making the evening both elegant and moreover, personal.

The Schooner America 2.0 is a modern homage to the original Schooner America, which won the first America’s Cup in 1851. America 2.0 operates in New York City from June through October and in Key West from November through May. Emphatically, this schooner combines historical elegance with contemporary comfort.


Join us every Tuesday from 6:45 pm to 8:45 pm for our Jazz Cruise, departing from Pier 62 at Chelsea Piers. We look forward to welcoming you aboard for an evening of music, sailing, and spectacular views.
