Shearwater Sailing


All hands on deck! Fall in love with Manhattan all over again sailing on the Hudson aboard the Shearwater. This roaring 20s, jazz-age, Gatsby-era schooner was the last luxury yacht built in the U.S. before the Depression, and is available for private charter or public sails every day and evening. Enjoy brunch on deck, unwind during a Happy Hour cruise, or board in time to bask in the sunset glow. The late-night Harbor Lights jaunts, when the river is lit only by city lights, are a crew favorite. With the wind whipping through your hair and the skyline rising over the river, you may never want to return to shore.
