Outdoor dining is one thing. Outdoor dining on a 70-foot yacht with close up views of the Statue of Liberty is another.
This summer, Bucket Listers is bringing a dinner and sailing series to the Hudson River, aboard the 101-year Ventura. Guests can enjoy a semi-private, socially distanced bucket list dining experience aboard the historic sailing yacht docked in Downtown Manhattan at North Cove Marina.
Exectutive Chef of The Surf Lodge in Montauk, Robert Sieber, will be curating each night's 5-course seafood-focused tasting menu with top shelf bar pairings.
In order to comply with social distancing standards, space will be very limited per seating. While Ventura's normal capacity holds 25 guests, each semi-private charter will be limited to 12 guests to ensure a premium experience with proper social distancing and space to move around. Tickets are priced at $275 per guest, with price inclusive of food, beverage and gratuity. Two 2.5 hour tastings – 6PM and 9PM – will take place on the following Fridays: August 7th, 14th and 21st.
Depart North Cove Marina, sail by Lower Manhattan and into the bay for views of the city skyline in the distance. On its return, Ventura will make a close pass by the Statue of Liberty and then return to North Cove Marina.
Pricing: $275 per guest (min. purchase 2), includes 4-5 course meal, drink pairings, and a 2.5 hour sail. Gratuity not included.
Pickup location: North Cove Marina, New York, NY
