YorktownAug 18 - 29, 2014
The Yorktown is the perfect vessel for relaxed and convivial exploration of America’s coastal waterways. Built in Florida in 1988 specifically for coastal cruising, the Yorktown flies the American flag and is staffed by friendly and experienced American officers and crew. And Yorktown guarantees a unique experience: thanks to its American registry, it can operate itineraries that are off-limits to foreign vessels.
The ship accommodates only 130 guests in 65 cabins. All cabins are exterior and have two twin beds or one queen bed and private facilities; Superior category cabins have a walk-out balcony.
Measuring 257 feet long, 43 feet wide, with a draft of 9 feet, the Yorktown is able to maneuver in secluded waterways and visit small ports that are inaccessible to larger vessels.
The Yorktown offers an ambiance of warm and relaxed informality that endears it to repeat and new guests alike. In addition to a large sun deck, the ship boasts a spacious lounge for social gatherings and lectures, as well as quiet space for private conversation. The ship’s cuisine, served in a dining room large enough to accommodate all guests at one time, emphasizes American regional culinary traditions and specialties. Both the lounge and dining room are surrounded by large picture windows that afford unobstructed views of the passing scenery.
