Schooner America 2.0

This stunning, black-hulled, 105-foot sailing yacht is a tribute to the first Schooner America — winner of the first America’s Cup in 1851. America 2.0 joined the Classic Harbor Line NYC fleet in 2011. Aboard Schooner America 2.0, the past meets the future both above deck and below deck. The “2.0” aspect of the yacht refers to the modern and eco-friendly nature of both her cutting-edge construction materials and her propulsion system. Schooner America 2.0 is another gem in the Classic Harbor Line NYC fleet! Aboard Schooner America 2.0 guests will find comfortable seating under her 3600 square foot sails. The boat is Coast Guard certified for up to 85 guests, but we have a range of guest count recommendations depending on the nature of the private event. We can accommodate up to 76 guests on her sprawling open deck on our public sail departures. A variety of bar and food packages are available including a full-service galley below deck and two marine restrooms.

More about Schooner America 2.0: In her ‘engine room’, there is a large battery bank system providing electric propulsion. Peel away her hull and rather than finding heavy fiberglass or steel, there is an extremely light and durable 3-layered composite: a sandwich of cedar over balsa core, laminated with an epoxy resin. Rather than a heavy wooden rig aloft, one finds carbon-fiber masts, booms, and gaffs. Together, these strengthening and lightening components of construction, coupled with her modernized power-sourcing, America 2.0 is provided with the ability to move through the water more effortlessly, efficiently, and with minimal environmental impact. The Schooner America 2.0 operates in NYC from June through October and in Key West, FL November through May.


“Beautiful, Unique, Classic NYC Experience I couldn’t recommend this trip more. I am a local but have never sailed on the Hudson River. The boat was beyond beautiful. The crew was super fun, knowledgeable, and cool. We went on a Tuesday night and there were only 10 other people on the trip so it felt like a private charter. Sunset along the Hudson River with the light reflecting off the buildings is any photographer’s dream. The complimentary drink and blankets were just the cherry on the sundae. I would recommend to any and all, and I would totally do it again. Great company, great boat, great crew. Fun for a couple or a big group of friends!”

“Wonderful experience with both the view and crew. Lived in New York all my life and never knew about this company. What a wonderful experience we had on my husband’s 52nd birthday and with 22 yo daughter and boyfriend. All of us had an amazing time; views to die for and great customer service from Captain and crew! Check marked item off my husband’s bucket list—sailing around Manhattan! Highly recommend to all interested in a “new” way to spend time with family and friends sharing good wine and beer! Don’t forget to bring your favorite cheese and crackers!”
