The Manhattan

Completed by Scarano Boats in October 2005, the Motor Yacht Manhattan is a brand new addition to the fleet cruising the New York City harbor waters. Classically-lined and comfortable, she is certified for 90 passengers. She features an enclosed back seating area surrounded by windows and skylights, and comes equipped for all weather, with air conditioning and heating.

Known for their amazing hospitality, the staff is professionally trained and experienced in boat handling and marine safety. Do not hesitate to ask the crew about the boat or any of the NYC sites.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do sails sell out frequently? If a cruise is sold out, is there a waiting list? -- Sails often sell out. Please try to book as early as possible. A waiting list is kept for sold out trips and special events.

Is the boat handicap-accessible? -- No. Passengers with mobility handicaps will have to be lifted by crew members onto the vessel.

Is it safe? -- Absolutely. Along with your captain, there is a minimum of two crew members on every sail to make sure you feel comfortable and at home on the water. The ship is stocked with water, beverages, and life jackets should you feel you need one.

How steady is the cruise? Am I likely to get seasick? -- It is very rare for our guests to become seasick. While most people do not experience any sea sickness on the boat, you may want to consider light medication if you normally take it for motion sickness. The crew cannot officially advise you to take any medication, however.

Is there a bathroom on the boat? -- Yes, the boat is equipped with a bathroom that is accessible at all times. The crew calls it a "marine head" and it is unlike the bathroom you use at home. It involves pumping and there are simple directions posted in the bathroom on how to use it.

Is there an age limit for these sails? -- While there is no age limit for the sail, all attendees under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Can I stow anything (eg, my briefcase) during the sail? -- There is an area below deck where you may store your belongings. Please keep in mind that this area is not guarded, so the crew cannot take responsibility for any broken, lost or missing items. But there has not been any problems with items being left on prior sails.

Where does the sail finish? -- Your sail will end at the same pier from which it departed.

Can I get a refund or reschedule my tickets after buying them? -- Because the crew is guaranteeing your space on the sail, tickets cannot be refunded once purchased. You may, however, reschedule your tickets (subject to availability) provided that you do so at least 24 hours before the scheduled start time for your sail. If you need to reschedule tickets that you already purchased, please contact us at the phone number or email listed on your E-Ticket before this 24 hour deadline. The sail that you will be rescheduling for will not be for more than a week later. You may only reschedule your tickets once.

Do you ever cancel sails due to bad weather? -- The sail usually runs in light rain and other moderate weather situations. The only time a trip is canceled is in the event of severe or unsafe weather conditions. Your captains monitor the radar to watch fronts and cells in the area on days when inclement weather is possible. Cancellations are made on the day of the sail, by the Captain, up to 1 hour prior to sail time. If you have purchased tickets for a sail that is cancelled, you will have the opportunity to to reschedule your tickets (subject to availability) or receive credit towards a future event.

What happens if it starts raining when we're out on our cruise? -- Don't worry, you won't melt! Trips with a little wetness have proven to be some the most memorable bonding experiences for our guests. (This all depends on attitude of course...) If you are caught in a rain shower there are ankle-length button-down raincoats available for all guests.

Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by Parent or Guardian. Tour does not include hotel pick up. Please order online or call to order or for more information.
