Overview

Soak up the wonderful sights and sounds of a magical New York evening as you sail aboard Hudson’s yacht, overlooking panoramic views of the city’s skyline… an incredibly dreamy experience to exchange vows.

From the moment you step aboard, your breath will instantly be taken away by this unique venue. Your ceremony will commence either dockside or on the deck of the yacht (weather permitting), and you’ll then delight in a wonderful sailing cruise and a three-course Mediterranean style dinner with an open bar. Our Classic Wedding also entails a rose bouquet for the bride and a groom’s buttonhole, as well as a wedding coordinator, private limousine, special cake and live entertainment on board. If you celebrate with our Premier Wedding ceremony, you’ll also be treated to a professional photographer either dockside or on deck of the yacht.

Head up to the yacht’s rooftop bar for sensational panoramas of New York’s glistening skyline, and you will sail down the Hudson River to the Freedom Tower, United Nations architecture and 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 further hidden gems along the way.

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.
