See New York Like Never Before

Toss out your old images you have of New York Harbor, the Hudson River, or the Brooklyn Waterfront. Sailing in these waters, whether on a warm mid-summer day, or a glorious sunset cruise, is one life's great pleasures. Perfect for any special occasion.

Sunset Cruises - Water Music Private Yacht Charters

Private Sunset Cruise

Sunset Sail NYC

 

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?

Birthday Celebrations - Water Music Private Yacht Charters

Birthday Cruise

Boat Birthday Party Cruise

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.

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.

Value

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!
