      Ride Aboard the Tiara 3500 Luxury Yacht - Manhattan

      Great time on the water! Yacht was bigger than expected and fit 12 comfortably. Glenn was a very easy going and accommodating. Also one of the few boats that offered a downtown Manhattan pick up and drop-off, which was very convenient.

      It was wonderful day and Glenn is very kind person. Also it was very convenient to chat and discuss details of the trip in what’s up. I was surprise by boat size it’s bigger, than on the photos :))) pleasant unexpected surprise:))) and in real life boat looks better, than on photos :)))) the only thing is just the fuel which is paid separately- I don’t know maybe it’s common practice for all boats, but just would like to pay your attention to that fact, I get this info after booking the boat. Overall it was great experience and I highly recommend to book this boat :)

      Arion was amazing. He made the trip for my son and myself the best it could be. He was very personable and made sure we enjoyed every second of our charter. Book him...you won't regret it.
