  • Family Activity on Yacht Manhattan

    I took our children and grandchildren ranging in age from 5 months to 22 years on a private charter cruise in the harbor for 2 hours. Everyone had an amazing time thanks to the friendly and helpful staff. It was an amazing, relaxing afternoon, and I cannot wait to do it again.

  • Family and Friends Event on Yacht Manhattan

    From the quality of the boat, to the drink options, to the staff, everything was perfect for our private charter on Manhattan. The crew offered to take photos for us at all the best opportunities and kept bringing out drinks for us so that we didn’t have to crowd the bar or disrupt our conversations. Incredible service!

  • Birthday on Yacht Manhattan

    With Adam’s help at Classic Harbor Line, my 80th birthday celebration for 40 guests was unforgettable. The crew aboard yacht Manhattan were amazing with big smiles and a gracious manner, and the delicious food was presented beautifully by Chef Celeni. Our captain, Juana, maneuvered the vessel with such skill that no drinks were spilled, and we loved John, our architectural tour guide, who had an astrinomical knowledge of New York City. This was a PERFECT birthday for me and my guests.

  • Corporate Event on Yacht Manhattan

    This is a review for a private charter on the Manhattan. Adam was easy to work with and quickly and thoroughly answered all of my questions via email as I was planning the event. Fast forward to the day of the event – my guests and I all had a fantastic afternoon on the water. The boat was mantained beautifully, and I was impressed that the crew was very professional and service-oriented. They made clear safety announcements, served the food and drinks in a timely manner, proactively took orders and provided refills, and offered to take photos at various opportunities. The level of hospitality and service exceeded my expectations.

  • Corporate Event on Yacht Manhattan

    I chartered Yacht Manhattan for a corporate event. The experience could not have gone better! Adam arranged everything to perfection. The boat was beautiful, the staff provided friendly service, and the the breakfast was delicious. The atmosphere on the boat was exactly what I wanted for this event. Therefore, I highly recommend using Classic Harbor Line!

  • Corporate Event on Yacht Manhattan

    I recently put on an employee event for our New York team and visitors from our Chicago office, and I could not be more pleased with how it turned out. Setting up the event details and the menu options was a seamless process thanks to Adam Miller at Classic Harbor Line. He was really helpful and quick to respond. Once aboard, we were welcomed warmly by the crew of the Manhattan, which is is a beautiful ship. The food and drinks were great, as was the service from Captain Tim, Kim, and the rest of the team. It was a wonderful evening for sailing.

  • Wedding on Yacht Manhattan

    I first experienced Classic Harbor Line on a Cocoa and Carols cruise in December. At the time, I was engaged, and we found the whole experience so relaxing and almost magical that my fiancé and I quickly began discussions to have our wedding on the Manhattan. Our wedding took place in July with around 30 guests. Adam and the CHL staff handled the venue details, the music, and the food. I honestly cannot imagine a better place to hold an event. Captain Jessica went way beyond her duties as a captain by explaining the best route options, advising our photographer on how to optimize lighting and angles for the ceremony, and making sure the crew knew exactly what we wanted. Mike and the band arranged by CHL set the mood perfectly with their music. The food was all delicious and presented at the right time, and Adam made us feel comfortable with quick communication throughout the planning process. I highly recommend booking public cruises AND private events through this company.

  • Birthday on Yacht Manhattan II

    I organized a private event on Yacht Manhattan II for 30 people to celebrate my wife’s birthday, and I have to say that the whole experience was amazing. The office staff worked hard to find available crew because I was had to book last minute after a previous arrangement did not work out. The staff on the boat were friendly, extremely helpful, and turned out to be instrumental to our party. We had a great time cruising around Manhattan, celebrating, and listening to good music. Everyone had fun, and the whole party turned out exactly the way I had hoped. I don’t even have to mention that my wife also totally loved the surprise and the whole experience!

  • Corporate Event on Yacht Manhattan II

    We worked with Adam Miller to host a private event for our company on Manhattan II, and the experience exceeded our expectations. From the planning and setup to the crew aboard during our tour, we cannot thank the team enough for making this outing a huge success.

  • Corporate Event on Yacht Manhattan II

    I hosted an outing for our team using Classic Harbor Line. Adam made the setup and coordination easy, and the onboard experience was delightful. The crew was friendly, the food was good, and Manhattan II was even more gorgeous than in the pictures. I highly recommend booking with this company if you are looking for a memorable experience!

  • Corporate Event on Yacht Manhattan II

    Hats off to the entire team at Classic Harbor Line! From arranging the booking details with Adam to the service from the crew aboard Manhattan II that kept our glasses and stomachs full, we could not have had a better experience. Everyone in our party remarked on how spectacular the vessel and the service were. I highly recommend this company for any NYC boat charter needs!

  • Wedding on Yacht Manhattan II

    We booked a private boat at sunset as a welcome party for our wedding, and it was honestly everything we could have ever hoped for. Every single member of the staff was INCREDIBLE, and we felt so well cared for by Captain Albert, Tim, Donna, Jason, and Adam from the moment we began discussing the event online, to the check-in process, all the way through to the very last minute on the boat. Most of our guests were visiting the city, so they absolutely LOVED it, and even for the New Yorkers who have been living here for a while, when do you get a chance to get THIS up close to the Statue of Liberty? Seriously, doing this boat cruise was the best decision ever to kick off our wedding festivities!

  • Repeat Private Charter Client on Yacht Kingston

    The boat tour with Classic Harbor Line is our go-to experience. It’s an amazing way for our guests and family to see the scale and makeup of the city from a unique perspective. The boats are comfortable and safe. The crew is knowledgeable and helpful. It’s rare that we make a trip to the City without making time for a Classic Harbor Line tour.

  • Graduation on Yacht Kingston

    We chartered the Kingston on May 20th as a private rental to host a graduation party. From Adam’s support in arranging the booking to our time with the crew on the vessel, the organization and service we received was outstanding. Kingston was a perfect size for our group, and the catering and bar service were exceptional. Even though we did not have the best weather on our day and our group was late to board, Captain Shanan took great care to optimize the trip to accomodate us. We had a great time overall and would highly recommend this experience!!

  • Birthday on Yacht Kingston

    I want to thank the team at Classic Harbor Line for helping me throw the best 40th birthday I could imagine. We booked the Yacht Kingston for a sunset sail on a Saturday evening, and everything was perfect. A big thanks to Adam, who made the planning very easy, and to Captain Tim, Sammy, and Alicia who handled a rowdy group of broadway actors with ease. For your next party, I highly recommend renting from CHL.

    – Kate, 40th Birthday on Kingston for 30 Guests

  • Corporate Event on Yacht Kingston

    The team at Classic Harbor Line is phenomenal! Adam, who I coordinated with to organize an event for work, was accommodating and very fast to respond. My work team was visiting from all over the country, and they all got to enjoy views of the New York skyline and an amazing sunset while drinking wine and eating delicious food. This really made their time in NYC memorable, and we all were able to bond in a fun environment. There were a few people who were a little nervous about being on the water, but Captain Diana, Shaun, and Tim immediately made us feel at ease, and we knew we could trust them fully aboard the yacht, Kingston. Shaun and Tim went above and beyond to make sure everyone was fed and having a good time. Thank you so much for everything!

  • Corporate Event on Yacht Kingston

    My team chartered the Kingston yacht for our summer work party. We all had a blast and left with so many fun pictures and memories from the cruise. We would highly recommend for a group around 20-30 people who wants some bonding time without being on a massive party ship!

  • Birthday on Adirondack

    I rented a private charter for my birthday celebration, and I cannot get over how wonderful of an experience it was! The crew did an amazing job at making it feel special, ensuring our safety throughout the trip, and answering the hundreds of questions asked by my friends. I could not recommend this more highly. If you are thinking about trying them or booking an experience, let me save you some time: BOOK IT!

  • Corporate Event on Adirondack

    Last evening, we chartered a private sail on the schooner Adirondack for a small work event, and everything was gorgeous. George, our captain, was knowledgeable, friendly, and reassuring. The crew was focused and courteous, and the boat was clean and beautiful. We enjoyed delicious appetizers and refreshing drinks throughout the sail. After this experience, I plan to do this more often on their regular public sails. I highly, highly recommend using Classic Harbor Line.

    – Diana, Corporate Event on Adirondack for 18 Guests

  • Corporate Event on Adirondack

    Our work group of 20 people did an afternoon sail on the Schooner Adirondack, departing from Chelsea Piers. Everyone on the team had a terrific time, and it was a great way to break up our time indoors with some fresh air and remarkable views. After the ride, we enjoyed a delicious dinner at Hudson Clearwater. It was a memorable day for us all.

  • Corporate Event on Adirondack

    Every time I have joined a Classic Harbor Line sail or cruise, I have been blown away. Most recently, I booked a private sail on the Schooner Adirondack for my company, and my colleaugues have all been raving about the experience ever since. If you’re looking for a unique corporate event, this really is the best option in NYC. We worked with Adam to plan our sail, and he was very responsive and patient with us as we worked through the event details, even when we had to make a last minute change to the date. He really held our hand throughout the whole process, which we very much appreciated! When our team arrived at the boat, we were greeted by Captain Kat, who was warm and friendly and also a boss at sailing. It was awesome to watch Kat and her crew in action, and they were all super attentive, making sure everyone had plenty of food, a full cup, and blankets to stay cozy and warm. Even though it was a cloudy day, the views were breathtaking. I cannot wait to join them again for another sail!

  • Wedding on Adirondack

    We booked the Adirondack as an activity for our wedding party, and it was everything I had imagined it would be. The city looked magical as we sailed down the Hudson to see the Statue of Liberty and then back to Chelsea Piers. The schooner was amazingly clean and beautiful, and I was totally comfortable even though it was my first time on a boat like this. Captain Kat and the crew were delightful and happy to engage in conversation as much or as little as we wanted. I would do this again in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone looking for a memorable NYC group experience.

  • Retirement Party on America 2.0

    Our recent experience renting a sailboat for my mother’s retirement party was an absolute blast. From the moment we stepped aboard, we were greeted with warm hospitality and spectacular service from the captain and crew. It was a windy day, but we felt safe with our group of friends and family ranging from grandparents to grandchildren. They answered all our questions and kept the boat sailing fast as we made our way out to the Statue of Liberty where everyone took some amazing photos and the crew captured a group photo for us. We were all impressed by the crew’s ability to keep our drinks full and bring out delicious hors d’oeuvres while also attending to the boat. We could tell they really loved their work, and we loved every minute out on the water. Thank you, Classic Harbor Line! We will definitely be back!

  • Birthday on America 2.0

    We had a group of about 40 friends and family to celebrate my husband’s 50th birthday on the America 2.0, and I have to say it exceeded my expectations. It was easy to plan the party thanks to helpful and responsive communication, and we were very happy with the food and drinks that we picked for the sail. The crew were friendly, efficient, and professional as well as fun to watch as they handled the sails while also keeping our drinks refreshed. We had beautiful conditions and could not believe that we had never been to the Statue of Liberty like this before. The captain even let my husband steer and get some photos at the wheel. Thank you for an incredibly memorable birthday!

  • Corporate Event on America 2.0

    This year we hosted our annual sail event with our clients on the the Schooner America 2.0, and it was an exceptional experience. Boarding the boat was an easy prcoess, and the captain, crew, and chef were all knowledgeable and attentive! We would like to especially highlight Chef Nicki for her customer service and culinary talents. We had amazing views of the New York skyline and the Statue of Liberty during a beautiful sunset. The weather contributed to our perfect sail, and this was truly one of the best events we have hosted thus far.

  • Corporate Event on America 2.0

    We booked a private event on Classic Harbor Line’s America 2.0 for about 55 members of our team, and it was the perfect size. The boat probably could have accomodated another 10-15 people. The sailors and staff were friendly, the event went smoothly, and the sales team worked with me in regards to budget. I recommend this company for private boat charters.

    – Carina, Corporate Event on America 2.0 for 50 Guests

  • Wedding on America 2.0

    Words cannot even describe how PERFECT our private charter sunset cruise on the Schooner America 2.0 turned out to be! This was the rehearsal dinner venue selected by our son and his fiancé, and every aspect was absolutely fabulous! Meghan in marketing was a delight to work with and never tired of answering our many questions. She made sure that every detail was in order and helped us choose the appetizers and drinks that were served, all of which were delicious! The sunset views of the Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty were breathtaking. Captain Shanan was also fantastic and expertly positioned the ship to allow a storm to pass when we saw rain over Manhattan, allowing the happy couple to take the wheel for some amazing photos of them “sailing into their new life together!”

  • Family Gathering on Yacht Full Moon

    Our extended family booked an afternoon cruise on the Full Moon while everyone was in town this summer. The whole process was smooth sailing. The boat was clean and elegant with a few different areas to sit that were each well suited to conversation and sightseeing. We went on the forward deck at the Statue of Liberty and other notable sites to get great outside photos and to enjoy the sunshine. There was also an enclosed cabin with comfortable seating that was a nice place to relax after being out on the deck. A third space had a covered roof but open views at either side with tables and benches that worked well as another place to mingle, eat, and drink. The younger family members found it fun to explore the different parts of the boat and to ask questions to Captain Greg and the crew, who were all very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and who provided great service. We had a wonderful time and would recommend a cruise on Full Moon for a family event or celebration or even a small corporate gathering.

  • Birthday on Yacht Full Moon

    I had a celebration for my 40th birthday on the Full Moon, a Classic Harbor Line yacht. The boat was amazing, the crew were incredible, and we could not have had a better time. The experience was so worth it, and I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you for helping make my birthday unforgettable.

    – Shannon, 40th Birthday on Full Moon for 20 Guests

  • Birthday on Yacht Full Moon

    Full Moon is a beautiful boat! We loved the combination of indoor and outdoor space. The meat and cheese and dessert platters were great. We had a blast for my fiancé’s 40th birthday and so much space for 20 people. Captain Mark was welcoming and did an amazing job, as did First Mate Sean. Adam, who we worked with at the office to coordinate everything, was so helpful and accommodating. We will definitely be back!

  • Corporate Event on Yacht Full Moon

    I used Classic Harbor Line for a corporate outing for our small group in NYC. We were looking for a private boat experience that includes dinner, drinks, and good views of NYC, and they delivered! Adam helped us with the booking from day one by providing us with many different boat options and helping us plan the best event that fit our budget. We ended up booking the Full Moon. It had a covering, which was a must for us in case of inclement weather, but also had ample outdoor space. It actually did rain, but we were very comfortable since the sides of the boat were protected as well. When the rain stopped, we were still able to take full advantage of the outdoor deck. We had great views of NYC and cruised right next to the Statue of Liberty. On the boat, Captain Pat and his crew (Natalie, Stephanie, and Chef Akeisha) were fantastic. They were extremely friendly, made sure we had enough food and drinks, took lots of group pictures for us, and were all around incredible hosts. To top it off – we saw a dolphin! How lucky and rare! Of all the options for a boat outing in NYC, I could not be happier with the company we chose. They treated us as real people from the beginning and accommodated our needs, and I will 100% use them again.

  • Wedding on Full Moon

    I used Classic Harbor Line for a private boat charter for a surprise engagement for my fiancé, and they were simply amazing. I had gone on two prior sunset cruises with them, and, based on those great experiences, I knew to hire them for this amazing moment. They did not disappoint. The biggest thing I am thankful for is how much they worked with me to make the proposal special and to keep it a surprise. There was a decent amount of coordination needed to get family members onboard and hidden until the proposal, as well as some “role playing” by the crew who said that we were the only ones on the boat because of some cancellations. They also allowed us to play a custom playlist, which was a very nice personal touch for us. I should also point out that in addition to their staff being amazing, their boats are beautiful. Overall, the whole experience was magical. A lot of companies offer private yacht rentals, but this one knows how to make it very special. I’m incredibly thankful to this very well-run organization and highly them if you are looking for a special moment.
