America's Cup Returns to NYC, New Prestige Website

America's Cup

America's Cup

America's Cup is returning to New York on May 7-8, and Prestige Yacht Charters is honored to provide key viewing locations to capture the excitement of this prestigious event.

Racing on the Hudson River will bring an entirely new dimension to New York City as six teams will compete here for the first time since 1920.

The City will become obsessed about yachting as only New York City can, and everyone will be talking about the event around the proverbial water cooler. Be the coolest guy in town with your pre-reserved first-class viewing of the event right on the water.

The Oracle Team USA skipper, Jimmy Spithill, said, "The New York event is going to be spectacular. Racing on the lower Hudson River, in front of that Manhattan skyline, will be a huge hit. New Yorkers are massive sports fans, and I think this will be something very special: thrilling, top-level racing right in the heart of the city. It's going to be a great event for the America's Cup and a great event for New York."

The oldest trophy in international sports, America's Cup was held in New York Harbor from 1870-1920 and was won by the New York Yachting Club from 1857 until 1983, the longest winning streak in the history of sports. Prestige Yacht Charters will be providing more details as the event approaches.

Moreover, we have added several new vessels since our last site update, all to satisfy the most demanding yachting connoisseurs."

Prestige Yacht Charters offers its yachts for a wide variety of events of any size including weddings, birthdays and other personal celebrations as well as corporate presentations. Ships leave from marinas in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut and other locations by special arrangement.
