Manhattan has one of the most recognizable cityscapes in the world, yet it is almost impossible to appreciate this view from the ground. Step aboard the teak decks of an elegant 1920s-style yacht, the Manhattan I or II, and take in New York City’s finest architectural landmarks from the water—the best vantage point.
Guided by members of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), Royal Oak will join AIA’s architecture tour which will take us on a 2 hour and 45 minute cruise exploring innovative, contemporary skyscrapers by award-winning architects; enduring Art Deco and Beaux Arts icons; as well as waterfront parks and city infrastructure.
We will view the newest features of the evolving Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and Bronx waterfronts in comfort and style, from either the enclosed back-deck observatory or from the open bow. Guests are treated to a complimentary beer, wine or champagne from the bar & light snacks as well as soda, water, tea or coffee. Additional beverages and a full bar are available for purchase.
