Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, the Open Harbor, Governor’s Island, The Brooklyn Shoreline, the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, the Gleaming Towers of Lower Manhattan, the New Jersey Palisades and Mid-Town Manhattan as seen from the historic Hudson River. It’s all waiting for you.
My favorite time to sail. A great thing about sunsets is that no two are the same. You will have to make some difficult decisions, however. Where do you want to be at maximum color explosion? Enjoying the Statue of Liberty’s stately silhouette against the flaming sky? Heading straight towards the golden Towers of Manhattan? Sailing up the Hudson with the entire Skyline ablaze with the setting sun’s reflection? And most critical of all, what beverage will you be enjoying as you lounge in comfortable seats on the deck taking it all in?
The birthday boy or girl will never forget this one. Do I really have to ask you if you think this experience would be head and shoulders better than sitting around the dining room table or in a crowded restaurant? A warning, don’t get frustrated if the warm harbor breeze blows out the candles a little prematurely.
Wedding proposals and anniversaries are a specialty of ours. The precise execution of this special experience will be carefully planned. We strive to make each moment special. Can we smuggle the cake and/or champagne aboard ahead of time? We coordinate the timing of the proposal. Where will the boat be positioned from a view perspective? What music will be playing? Will the sun be setting? The champagne bucket will be delivered at the proper moment. Photography will capture the key moments (Let us know if professional photography is desired).
For the price of a group dinner at a Manhattan restaurant, you could be experiencing New York from a spectacular perspective. Relax on the deck on comfortable seats or dine in the cockpit on a teak table while the skyline slips by you.
Bring your own photographer, or I can coordinate. Anyone can get a decent photo on a Manhattan or Brooklyn street. Visual memories from the water will be those you cherish for life. Professional photo shoots are supported, of course, a no-brainer.
The absolute best seat in the house for the Macy’s Fireworks Spectacular. The evening starts with a sail out to the Statue of Liberty to kick off the party (photos, etc.). Before sunset we sail across the harbor and up the East River to the staging area where we’ll set up for the show. The fireworks are launched from barges virtually right in front of us (at a safe distance of course). No one on land has a better view (viewers on high rise balconies right on the river might argue). The evening concludes with an exciting sail down the East River and across the harbor with hundreds of boats, all enjoying the nightly magic of the city.
The interior is even more impressive than the exterior; solid, furniture-quality teak throughout.
Water Music is arguably the most beautiful private sailing yacht in New York.

Water Music is arguably the most elegant private sailing yacht in the NY Harbor. The classic semi-custom design will impress you, or whomever you want to impress. The interior is especially stunning; true furniture quality teak. There is little comparison with the mass produced competitors. The Passport 40 was designed to sail the world’s oceans. Many of them have indeed done so, including circumnavigating the globe. What does this mean to you?…You are on the most stable and comfortable private yacht in the harbor. Relax and enjoy!
I pride myself in my ability to please you and your guests. Need a comfortable chair to sit in?. You got it! Feeling a bit cool? Wrap yourself in our fleece blankets. Thirsty or hungry? We will deliver your drinks and food to you on deck. Want us to take photos? Let us know!

There are 6 passenger yacht rentals that advertise a lower price. Read carefully. They will likely sail for 2 hours or less. I feel strongly that 3 hours is the ideal length to fully enjoy the sights, and enjoy quality sailing time. In addition, factor in the yacht quality and personalized service. You will not be disappointed!
