Yacht Manhattan or Manhattan II

Yacht ManhattanStep aboard these classic style yachts (Manhattan or Manhattan II) for a NYC sightseeing cruise! We have been rated in the top 3 best Architecture boat tours in the USA.  So step aboard for a AIANY Around Manhattan Architecture Tour, or join us for a boat ride out to the Statue of Liberty to snap some selfies and take in the NYC Skyline from the water. The sightseeing cruises on these boats will create memories to last a lifetime.  Trying to figure out the most perfect NYC Date idea?  Step aboard with your loved one for a romantic sunset cruise or a city lights cruise out in NY Harbor. Manhattan or Manhattan II are inspired by the famous (and infamous) commuter yachts of the Roaring Twenties! These boats were commonplace in NY Harbor — owned by the ultra rich on the shores of Long Island Sound — Oil Barons and Wall Street tycoons outfitted long narrow boats with the ever-so-popular combustion engine. Designed for speed and elegance, the Manhattan and Manhattan II are outfitted with 1000 horse power John Deere Diesels, and will be traveling at safe comfortable “cruising speeds” while you enjoy a glass of award winning champagne, a bountiful Brunch, or perhaps an Architecture Tour.
