Experience New York City aboard the historic
Sailing Yacht Ventura
an upscale, yet casual venue for memorable summer entertainment.
Stylish entertainment for Clients, Staff, and Friends
Event planners have found an evening or afternoon cruise aboard the Ventura is an exceptional venue for summer entertaining: memorable, an opportunity to chat informally, and turn-key! You provide the people, the yacht provides the rest.
An evening cocktail party for 15 to 25 guests allows the host to offer a "class act under sail." Surprisingly affordable!
A National Treasure on the Water and Under Sail
Ventura is a Federally-documented, national landmark sailing vessel designed by Captain Nathanael Herreshoff, in 1919 . Commissioned for George F. Baker, founder of today's Citibank, Ventura still sails on her solid teak and mahogany hull, with her original bronze winches and a spectacular high gloss varnished mast. She graciously carry's parties of 28 people in Gatsby-era style and class.
Her Home Port Glam is an attraction itself!
Our home port, where your guests can begin and end your cruise, is the spectacular North Cove Marina, on the Hudson River. Located at the World Financial Center, this location is a destination in itself for upscale dining among fresh summer breezes. The combination of classic, old world craftsmanship aboard the yacht, and the modern marina glamour is also an ideal location for films and product photo shoots.
