Enjoy New York City onboard a 35ft Hinckley Pilot sailboat for up to six passengers. Please do not ask for more than six as it is a USCG rule and law. Children no matter what size are included in the six passenger count. Rates: $330 Per hour during the day and $375 after 6pm. Most of our charters last for two hours. What You Can Expect: We offer two-hour sailing tours from Battery Park City, NY, to the sights of Lower Manhattan. Seven days a week, the sailboat Tara will leave the dock at North Cove Marina inside near Brookfield Place. Our sails are limited to six passengers so you are guaranteed a personal experience. You will sail past the sights of Lower Manhattan, including the Freedom Tower, Battery Park, Governors Island and Ellis Island, while ending with a close-up view of our majestic lady in the harbor, the Statue of Liberty. Please feel free to bring any food or drinks you like on board. Features: Tara is a 1964 Hinckley Custom Pilot 35 sailboat, designed by the famous Sparkman and Stephens design team. Only 117 Pilot 35’s were built, with only four custom-labeled. Being the 25th boat to roll out of the Hinckley Company Maine facility, Tara became a custom Pilot 35 as her coach roof was built higher than the normal Pilot 35. Tara is extremely stable, comfortable and fun to sail. She has a full keel which allows her to glide through NY harbor effortlessly. If the weather should turn inclement, the handsome-varnished wood interior is available for you to enjoy in style and comfort. If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay. Just hit, “Request to Book” and send us an inquiry for a custom offer.
I am excited to be a part of the GetMyBoat movement in making access to NY Harbor more accessible and fun. With over 30 year sailing I look forward to sharing my love for sailing and NY City with my guests.
Incredible experience. Extremely grateful.
