Boating with Barton & Gray

Barton & Gray Hinckley Boat

In the words of Ferris Bueller, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” And that’s something I struggle with a lot. I’m always go, go, go, especially with the hustle and bustle of NYC but last week I had an invitation from Barton & Gray Mariners Club to go yachting on the Hudson and I took my first pause in far too long. And it was absolute bliss. It was exhilarating to be with my friends, aboard this intimate setting with nothing but the sound of the waves as we cruised down the river. The views of both the skyline and Statue of Liberty aboard this special setting reminded me of just how miraculous NYC is.

If you’re not familiar, Barton & Gray Mariners Club operates a fleet of Hinckley boats from Nantucket to Naples offering an extraordinary way to experience the coastal life. They offer membership services for unlimited boating along the Eastern seaboard from stops to private islands and beaches to harbor cruises. This year that have partnered with Serena & Lily to makeover several of their ships and outfit them in their unique prints.
