For power boat fans, the luxurious Yacht Manhattan is a real gem amongst the New York Harbor tour boats. She is a 1920s style, mahogany-trimmed "commuter" yacht that cruises with far fewer passengers than any other Manhattan tour boat. Her ticketed harbor cruises average only about 20-50 guests per cruise. She has two regular routes on her ticketed cruises. One of her most unique is a 2.75 hour weekend cruise that encircles the entire island of Manhattan, passing under 18 different bridges, and stopping briefly at the Statue of Liberty. Her shorter 1.5 hour cruise is offered regularly during the afternoon, at sunset, and for stellar city lights cruises. This cruise on the Manhattan captures all the key waterfront sites of the New York Harbor: the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Battery Park, the Financial District Skyline, the Brooklyn Bridge, the East River and the United Nations Building, along with the numerous other landmarks of the Upper New York Harbor.

All of these cruises include a complimentary beverage from her teak and mahogany bar from within the climate-controlled, sky-lit solarium. You can ride indoor or outdoor in absolute luxury and comfort from April through Early January.
