4. The Arabella
The Arabella may be New York City’s best maritime secret. Wherever the Arabella goes, it’s guaranteed to be the most spectacular yacht in the harbor, but very few New Yorkers realize it’s accessible to the public. Owned by the Manhattan Yacht Club since 2013, the three-masted 157-foot mega yacht (technically a staysail schooner) can be found anchored in New York harbor during the summer months. The boat is often anchored for great views of the New York City skyline in front of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
