What a great way to kick off the holiday season! This event, on the first Saturday evening after Thanksgiving, is perfectly timed to show off New York City and the surrounding region at its finest.
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 9, 2010
Prestige Yacht Charters, a premier luxury-yacht charter company serving New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, today announced its participation in the lighted boat parade, a procession of vessels travelling up and down the Hudson and East River on November 27th from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
The parade will start at Pier 66, off of West 26th Street, travel around the tip of Manhattan to just north of the Manhattan Bridge, and then reverse course to end at Pier 62. Participants will view the impressive New York skyline, Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge with land side viewing at a number of locations including South Street Seaport, Chelsea Piers, Hudson River Park and Battery Park. Viewing is free from land; some boats offer “open to the public” ticket sales; and others are available for private charter only.
David Hackert, President of Prestige Yacht Charters, said, “What a great way to kick off the holiday season! This event, on the first Saturday evening after Thanksgiving, is perfectly timed to show off New York City and the surrounding region at its finest.
“You can take in the Christmas spectacular at Radio City Music Hall or skating at Rockefeller Center, then choose a select spot to view the parade as the twilight fades into evening, and the New York City skyline comes alive.”
Prestige Yacht Charters will feature one of its most luxurious yachts, the Lexington (http://www.prestigeyachtcharters.com/yacht_lexington.asp), as well as other private and public yachts depending on demand. Other vessels in the parade will include dinner boats, work boats, water taxis, tall ships, ferries and private boaters.
In addition to the parade, Prestige also offers affordable yachting packages for corporate holiday parties and Christmas weddings. Gourmet cuisine, entertainment options ranging from a dee-jay to an on-board casino, and décor especially customized by event planners are all included.
