This historic, hand-built fishing schooner is the largest wooden vessel in New York City, but these days she's docked in Tribeca for the sole purpose of slinging sustainable small plates. Think: Atlantic oysters and sea-scallop ceviche. Location.
North River Lobster Co.
Can't make it to the beach? This is a great place to score a little tan--all while noshing on lobster rolls and sipping on mason-jar cocktails. The Hudson-docked boat leaves the pier every few hours for 45-minute jaunts down the river. The best part: No tickets are required, and you can hang out as long as you like. Location.
Especially great for entertaining out-of-towners, this luxury yacht (that sails from the West Village and tours around the harbor) has a wide range of dinner-cruise and happy-hour options to choose from. Location.
Manhattan By Sail
Imagine if Grand Banks ever left the dock. That's the kind of intimate, open-air vibe you get here. Two different ships sail at various times throughout the week--some offering full meals, others with a simple cash bar. Location.

And now for New York's best-kept secret: This anchored barge smack-dab in the middle of the harbor. It's a bit tricky to get to (as of this summer, you have to take a tender boat from Jersey City, not Manhattan), but once you're sipping Sauv Blanc with a full skyline in view, you'll forget all your Path train woes. Location.
Needing little introduction, this anchored Chelsea spot has been an NYC day-drinking bastion for years. Maybe she's not as chic as the others, but when all you need is a bucket of beers and a breeze, she'll do you right. Location.
