The Clipper City

The Clipper City was built in the 1980s as a steel replica of the famous Clipper lumber-hauling schooners that were in use in the 1800s. 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 waters of New York with 150 eager passengers. This means that the decks are not only spacious but very comfortable. There are inside and outside spaces so depending on the season, you’ll be able to enjoy great views of Manhattan either way! There is also a raised quarter deck so you can view the Manhattan skyline in all her glory. Taking a tall ship cruise is an experience in itself, you will leave behind the hustle and bustle of busy Manhattan and feel relaxed whilst on board.

Views of Brooklyn Bridge, Ellis Island and Lady Liberty

You will see the Brooklyn Bridge up close and personal as well as Ellis Island and Lady Liberty herself. Enjoy the bar on board with a great selection of beverages. Sailing with the Clipper City is a romantic experience, perfect to share with your partner, date or special someone.

There are seven different cruises: 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 provides a peaceful 1 – 2 hour cruise across the New York Harbour. Whether you want to snap photos, just unwind or be amazed by the night lights of Manhattan, taking the Statue of Liberty Tall Ship Sailing Cruise is absolutely worthwhile.

Eric’s Tip: A tour on this sailboat is a unique experience. There are no engine noises, you just glide in silence over the river. The guests are often encouraged to help hoist the sails, this also makes the tours fun for children.
