The Clipper City

The Clipper City was built in the 1980’s. A steel replica of the famous Clipper lumber hauling schooners used in the 1800’s. Built using plans purchased from the Smithsonian Institution (the world’s largest museum/research complex), the ship has been updated, keeping its new function in mind: to cruise the New Yorks waters with 150 eager passengers. Therefore, the decks are not only spacious but comfortable too. There is inside and outside space available so, no matter the season, you’ll be able to enjoy great views of Manhattan! There’s also a raised quarter deck giving you the opportunity to view the Manhattan skyline in all her glory. Taking a tall ship cruise is an experience in itself. Leave behind the hustle and bustle of busy Manhattan for some serious relaxation.

Views of Brooklyn Bridge, Ellis Island and Lady Liberty

Get up close and personal with the Brooklyn Bridge, as well as Ellis Island and Lady Liberty herself. Enjoy the well stocked bar along the way. Sailing on the Clipper City is a romantic experience, perfect to share with that special someone.

There are seven cruises available: the Statue of Liberty Sail, the Twilight Sail, the Harbour Lights Sail, the Burlesque Sail, the Craft Beer Sail, the Lobster & Beer Lovers Sail and the Harbour Evening Sail with Live Jazz. Each provide a peaceful 1/2 hour cruise across the New York Harbour. Whether you want to snap photos, just unwind or be amazed by the bright lights of Manhattan after dark, taking a Statue of Liberty Tall Ship Sailing Cruise is absolutely worthwhile.

Eric’s Tip: A tour on this sail boat is a unique experience. There’s no engine noise: you just glide in silence over the river. Guests are often encouraged to help hoist the sails, making it also a fun option for children.
