More Information

Get married aboard 'Hudson's' yacht for the experience of a lifetime. Step onto the boat, and tie the knot in a truly unique location that neither of you will ever forget. Then, after the ceremony, enjoy a lovely Mediterranean style dinner and cruise on board for a truly magical evening.  Your ceremony will take place either dockside or on deck of the yacht (weather permitting), then your dinner is served as part of a 2 hour cruise taking in the sensational sights of the New York skyline.   The dinner cruise sails down the Hudson and up to the Freedom Tower, and far enough north for guests to catch a glimpse of the pristine architecture of the United Nations.  No cruise would be complete with a sail past the Statue of Liberty.  The ship then turns around and sets sail back to Pier 81 where you will also have views of the Statue of Liberty. Other well-known landmarks visible along the cruise include the shimmering art deco spires of the Empire State and Chrysler Building. There are also hidden gems along the way.
