We are known as the boutique of New York Harbor yachts, and boasts a small fleet of turn-of-the-century style boats. Each yacht is known for their craftsmanship, and intimate, elegant and comfortable environments.
Whether you are looking to propose and have it just be the two of you, to doing micro weddings or the full family and friends, we have the perfect venue for you.
The Schooners’ beautiful sails and construction offer a nautical wedding on the open air decks as you pass by the Statue of Liberty and say your vows! The yachts Manhattan and Manhattan II offer old-world nods and full sit-down dinners as you pass under the Brooklyn Bridge. The Yachts Full Moon and Kingston are cozy and elegant. We have a classic yacht for every taste and style.
We love NY! Each yacht was handcrafted here in the State of New York, along the Hudson River. Made with great detail and pride, each vessel features teak decks, mahogany trim and a number of brass fittings and well-appointed fixtures. These beautiful boats are ideal for wedding ceremonies, entertaining before or after your ceremony, rehearsal dinners, proposals, elopements, micro weddings, to your close entourage, or the whole list of friends and family! Whichever it is you are looking to do, it will be a beautiful and memorable occasion!
