Yacht Rental in NYC

Renting a yacht is one of the top activities you can do in New York City, and it is available to everyone!


Why Rent a Yacht in NYC?

New York City is one of the most amazing cities in the world. Experiencing it from any angle offers an incredible time that cannot be replicated. 

However, most people only see NYC from the streets. This is a shame because the views from the water are on a whole other level. Renting a yacht in NYC allows anyone to reach this level. 

Plus, your experience on the yacht is entirely up to you. You can go for an elegant cruise focused on living it up in luxury. You can also go on a fun-focused cruise that is simply about having some good times with some good friends. The possibilities are endless. However, no matter what you do, you’re doing it with one of the most identifiable backdrops in the world.

In New York City, renting a yacht for the day is incredibly easy. This is because Anchor Rides streamlines the process and makes it more accessible than ever. 

Find a Location Near You

To rent a yacht in New York, you first need to pick a location. New York has multiple points where you can hit the water, so you’ll need to look at them and see which works best for you. This will likely depend on exactly where you live and where you want to go. 

Select Your Departure Date

You’ll also need to set a departure date. This is the date you want to head out onto the water. 

Choose Your Yacht

With your location and departure date selected, you’ll see your yacht options. Each date has different options, so make sure you compare and contrast a few before making your final decision. 

Request and Confirm Availability

With your yacht selected, you can make a request. This will confirm that all of the options you have chosen will work. 

Reserve Your Yacht Rental

After this is confirmed, you can make the actual reservation. This involves putting down a small deposit which will be returned to you after the rental. 

Select Your Crew and Captain

With your yacht picked out, you’ll need to select the Captain and crew. These will be the people accompanying you on your yacht ride. 

Start Your Excursion in NYC

With all of this picked out, you’re ready to cruise in the Big Apple. Just show up at your designated location on your designated date, and you’ll be taken care of.
