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. During the boat trip, you can walk around to see the various sights or take a seat at the many seating options. Onboard you’ll find a full-service bar where you can get local beers, cocktails, or other beverages and small snacks. 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 view with a drink in hand.

There are seven different cruises: the Statue of Liberty Sail, the Twilight Sail, the Harbor Lights Sail, the Burlesque Sail, the Craft Beer Sail, the Lobster & Beer Lovers Sail and the Harbor Evening Sail with Live Jazz. Each provide a peaceful 2-hour cruise across the New York Harbour. Sailing on the Clipper City during the day is also fun for children. When the sun has set it becomes more of a romantic experience, perfect to share with that special someone. 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.
