Manhattan By Sail takes you on a relaxing sightseeing tour through New York Harbor on the Hudson River aboard the majestic tall ship Clipper City. Check out New York's legendary landmarks on a 90-minute daytime or two-hour evening excursion aboard the city's largest commercial sailing vessel, providing absolutely stunning views of the Brooklyn Bridge, Lady Liberty, Ellis Island, the Manhattan skyline, and the fortifications of Governors Island and Battery Park. At 158 feet long and 120 feet high, the Clipper City pays magnificent tribute to New York's historic sea-centered past, but she's also been outfitted with all the 21st-century amenities you could want, including an on-board bar.
Nothing will prepare you for the amazing sensation of being NYC’s largest sailing boat in commercial operation today … 158 feet long, with masts rising 120’ off the deck. Flying over 8,000 square feet of sail and weighing in at over 200 tons, the Clipper City is both the iconic newest addition to the NYC skyline and a stunning reminder of New York’s role in America’s 19th-century rise to prominence in global commerce.
Drinks available for purchase on board.
