East River Ferry maintains a fleet of vessels, with our most popular charter options being the 149 passenger double-deck catamarans and the 399 passenger double-deck monohulls. These vessels can be set up for a variety of types of party and sightseeing events, whether you require food, drinks, music, dancing, etc. Outside catering is allowed with prior approval, however we do have catering services we work with regularly that we can recommend. We can even hook you up with a bus if you need ground transportation, as we own and operate a fleet of 45 passenger buses as well.
The open-air upper decks on our vessels also make for a great location for film & video productions. Our boats have been used by various television productions, such as Person of Interest (CBS), SMASH (NBC), I Just Want My Pants Back (MTV), and White Collar (USA), in media promotions for the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets, and as a location for many large and small budget independent and major feature films.
Our pier locations offer a visual range from the uniquely designed World Financial Center Ferry Terminal, which features a Hudson River view (complete with the Statue of Liberty) to something more open, featuring an East River location, such as our North Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and DUMBO Brooklyn landings.
