Tip of the Month CRUSING IN NYC

New York is the city that never sleeps, the city that has everything at your finger tips and can get it to you in a single heartbeat.  So, why is booking an event on a cruise ship so difficult?  

We have access to an world renown river with infamous skyline views, why is there not a vessel to accommodate the upscale nature of the city?  

Throughout my searches, I have found only one commercial yacht, the Bateaux.  Owned by Spirit Cruises, I was apprehensive to experience the typical 1980's boating decor with mediocre food that is similar to the other yachts.  But, I was surprisingly mistaken.  This Dutch glass boat has reasonably priced food and bar packages, consistent service and incredible view of the city.  For clients that are looking for a boating experience for both in and out of town guests, this is the venue.  The Bateaux can leave from either Chelsea Piers, NY or Weehawken, NJ and will transport guests down the west side to the Brooklyn Bridge and then detour to the Statue of Liberty.  The sight lines leave a breath taking experience.  

Take a look at this water venue next time you need a unique and memorable location.
