3 Unique Ships for Your Customized Private Cruise
Whether a wedding, social group or corporate event, the on-site event planning team will tailor-create your voyage. Since your event is unique, an event planner will first sit down with you to brainstorm your goals and vision. Together, you'll select the perfect yacht layout, design a delicious menu with the chefs, choose wine and cocktails, and explore the themes that make your private charter an unforgettable journey. Your creative vision is then brought to life, ensuring a first-class experience from the very moment your guests step on board.
All 3 ships feature fully equipped galleys, outdoor decks furnished with casual tables and chairs, panoramic view windows, high-quality sound systems and full-service bars on all decks. An eclectic mix of DJs and live musicians invites your guests to dance the night away with friends, or cheek to cheek with that special someone.

Experience the cuisines of the world without leaving the harbor. The executive chef has designed the menu by blending his 25 years of New York culinary expertise with his extensive world travel. Global influence mixes with local ingredients – from the Tri-state area’s Bountiful Harvest to Pennsylvania’s Organic Amish farms – to create intricate, savory dishes of meats, poultry, pasta, fish and vegetables. The chef's seasonally evolving entrees reflect the up-to-the-minute rhythms of Manhattan, as delectable and diverse as the city.
