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.

On August 29th, we will be hosting Untapped Cities readers and Untapped Cities Insiders on the Arabella for an evening in New York Harbor, with a special 50% off the launch price. The boat will be anchored for great views of the New York City skyline in front of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Once on board, there will be a cash bar. The Untapped Cities team will be taking the 6:45 PM launch, but you are welcome to select any other time.
