Explore the bounty and beauty of New York harbor on a classic Newport-style sailing yacht! Take in the iconic sights of the New York City skyline while harkening back to the golden yachting days of old on the historic Shearwater.
Built in 1929 of hand-hewn native Maine white oak and designed by famed naval architect Theodore Donald Wells, this 82 foot schooner has a rich American history as not only a racing yacht that has circumnavigated the globe and transited the Panama Canal twice but also as a Chesapeake Bay defense patrol boat during World War II.
Designated a national landmark in 2009, the Shearwater offers passengers the resonant atmosphere of old-fashioned sailing as they revel in the modern marvels of the Manhattan skyline and, most especially, in the beauty of Lady Liberty.
