Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

The Veuve-Cliquot Polo Classic is scheduled for late May 2015 in Liberty State Park in Jersey City and will feature world-class players on meticulously groomed grounds at this Hudson River venue overlooking the imposing New York City skyline.

If you've never watched it live, polo offers a penetrating insight into the lives of the rich and famous, who would patronize this sport exclusively in bygone years.

And in the spirit of Veuve Clicquot, Prestige Yacht Charters will offer private yacht rentals for transportation to the exciting event. What better way to go to a polo match than sliding down the Hudson drinking Veuve-Clicquot champagne. The crowd of spectators will ooh and ahh at your classy arrival as you deign to attend the event, with the same detached upper-class attitude as the 19th century aristocrats.

Of course, polo is an exciting sport to watch, and the athletes take it all very seriously. And so should you if your goal is to impress that special someone. The whole day will offer one thrill after another, and you will feel thoroughly pampered by the end of the trip.

Of course, Prestige Yacht Charters will join in the spirit of the day as you sip champagne and munch on gourmet hors d'oeuvres during the voyage there and back. And only the impressive shadowing of the Statue of Liberty will break into your upper-class reverie of sophistication and comfortable living.

Your friends, those who don't come with you, will be thrillingly regaled about the time you took a yacht to a polo match. And you will remember the event for the rest of your lives.

So, if you wish to celebrate a special milestone in your lives, or just break out of the daily monotony, contact us now to reserve your private yacht.

New York Harbor Fireworks

Fireworks in New York Harbor

Watching fireworks in New York Harbor can be summarized in one word: spectacular. Whether you're wining and dining a business prospect or celebrating a special social occasion, the evening will be indelibly preserved in your guests' minds for the rest of their lives.

While the water laps rhythmically against your vessel, you will be treated to a front-row seat of the best the city has to offer. The imposing New York City skyline will be thrown into sharp relief by each exploding projectile, and you will watch with Lady Liberty as the show progresses to a climatic finale.

However, even before the show begins, you and your guests will be soothed by tasty hors d'oeuvres, fine gourmet cuisine and any style of music you prefer. Our professional crew will cater to your every whim, and your friends will gush, "This was a great idea!"

If you wish to reserve a yacht for other occasions, our staff can assist you with event planning, decorations and the various options available for your event. Whether it's a wedding, bar mitzvah or birthday party, you can rest assured everything will be arranged in a tasteful and sophisticated manner.

And in the unlikely case of inclement weather, all our yachts are climate controlled with both outdoor areas and enclosed decks to continue your celebration unabated.

Moreover, you do not need to wait for a special occasion to arrange a special event. Are you bored with the daily grind? Looking to energize your love life with that special someone? A trip around New York Harbor will create its own fireworks.

NB: For the Fourth of July, quality boats and yachts will depart from select locations throughout the New York Metro area for a leisurely trip along the Hudson and East River. The vessels will anchor below the Statue of Liberty just north of barges located between 23rd and 59th Street to release the fireworks. The number of yachts is limited and available on a first-come first-serve basis.

Charter Yacht Justine at Sunset - Lady Liberty

Full-Day Itinerary

Many of us are faced with relatives or close friends who come to visit us in New York and expect an inside tour of the metropolis. If you're like most New Yorkers, you haven't patronized the main attractions yourself never mind showing them to others.

But downtown New York is bustling with activity, and the skyline is in a state of flux with the new Freedom Tower playing a dominant role. If your friends come to visit in the dog days of summer (hard to imagine right now), we suggest a trip around New York Harbor to complement your tour.

The trip affords an up-close view of the Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge, and it can serve as a restful interlude after visiting some of your other favorite sites. You may even wish to take a cruise at night to show off the sparkling wonder of the city as you munch on tasty hors d'oeuvres or other culinary delicacies.

If you're a native New Yorker looking to combine our yachting adventure with other sightseeing for yourself, there are many new sites including the 9/11 museum and memorial, the North Cove marina and the new building on Park Avenue, the tallest residential tower in the northern hemisphere.

You can shoehorn the sightseeing into the beginning of your day, and then unwind and relax on one of our yachts.

If there is a theme to your sightseeing, such as modern art, you will, of course, want to visit MOMA, and then you can work with our event planners to decorate our yacht accordingly.

The possibilities abound. You can emphasize ethnic landmarks and then order a special cuisine. You can go to a Broadway musical and re-play the same songs for entertainment.

In short, combining our yachting experience with other events or activities can make your whole day more enjoyable and exciting, and we can tailor your time with us in any way you choose.
