The Mark Hotel Sets Sail for Summer

The Mark Hotel launched its iconic sailboat for the summer season this week with an intimate gathering. The 70-foot sailboat truly symbolizes The Mark, with a customized Main Sail and the brand’s signature black and white stripes decorating the cushioned seats.

The ride, which begins at the North Cove Marina in Tribeca, served as a beautiful contrast to the quick streets of Manhattan. Background music floated in the breeze as wine, cocktails, platters and canapés by Jean-Georges Vongerichten were served by the yacht’s crew against the setting sun.

Just one of many of the hotel’s unrivaled amenities, The Mark Sailboat is open to guests of the hotel, with complimentary transportation to the dock. Guests staying for a minimum of two nights and looking to book a scenic ride around the Hudson for an evening may book package deals starting at $5,000.

The ride across the Hudson River coupled with the personalized view of the one-of-a-kind city skyline offers even more of the Upper East Side’s charm by adding an evening on the water to the itinerary.
