Each Wine Sail features an eclectic selection that may highlight differing countries, trends and themes. We welcome you to join us for an excellent opportunity to experience the ambiance of a vintage sailing vessel while delighting in the splendors of The Manhattan sky-line, the Statue of Liberty or the beauty of the oceans beyond. Brief history on the vessel: She is a classic Newport-style schooner yacht, only recently recognized as a national landmark in 2009. Since her launching and documentation in Lloyd?s Register of American Yachts in 1929, she has had a colorful history and has been carefully maintained and restored to standards that few contemporary vessels are able to match and is truly a piece of American Maritime History. During the chartering industry?s infancy in the Caribbean, the schooner was known as the " Queen of the Fleet". Today she continues this tradition offering the most unique sailing experience and has passed rigid Coast Guard inspections and can carry up to 49 passengers.
