What does one do when you attend a NYC cruise event and the boat doesn’t leave the dock? What else other than to keep partying. That’s just what happened at the first Summer Elite NYC Yacht Event on Friday aboard the Harbor Lights Yacht at Skyport Marina. While there was speculation on Coast Guard issues or mechanical failure, that didn’t stop the boat load of stylish and trendy New Yorkers aboard to enjoy the event’s festivities for what still ended up being a night of fun.
While there was no sailing into international waters for a night of epic fun, the perfect Summer evening was good enough for guests to enjoy all the spoils aboard the Harbor Lights Yacht which included live painting from local artists capturing the faces of those aboard, delicious free food from NYC’s killer local chain Potatopia, open bars, and of course beautiful women in every direction.
Of course, being an event based around the celebration of NYC’s music artists on the rise, including killer sets by our friend Clair Riley-Roe with her pop-based singer-songwriter style and hip-hop/soul singer Jared Evan wrapping the night to a close.
