- New York's largest sailing ship
- Acclaimed jazz musicians aboard
Step back in time to a bygone era, when large schooners like the Clipper City were the engine of American industry and a familiar sight on New York’s Hudson and East Rivers. This wonderful New York gift experience sets sail on an elegant and spacious replica of these mighty lumber-hauling ships, for unparalleled panoramas of the New York harbour and a memorably romantic evening on the water. Let the hustle of the Big Apple slip away as you relax with a few drinks aboard this comfortable and stylish vessel.
We recommend arriving at the pier early, in time to watch the crew as they set the sails and ready the ship for departure, a thrilling sight. Immense lumber-carrying schooners helped many families make their fortune in generations past, but now they are rarely seen on the open wave. As you gently cruise along the river, the sublime romantic atmosphere is heightened by the sounds of cool live jazz, from some of New York’s most renowned musicians. You’ll remember this voyage for years to come.
