Reasons You Don’t Have to Love Country Music to Love Our Sails

If you’ve been following along, NYCountry Swag and Manhattan By Sail have teamed up for 4 events before the cold weather sets in. Our first country edition sail was on August 9th and featured Rob Bellamy and our second was on September 14th featuring Carter Winter.  With two more events coming up, we wanted to let you in on a little secret, you do not have to love country music to absolutely love these sails. Here are some reasons why:


The Views

Even if you are a native New Yorker, even if you have grown up right in the middle of the city, our Manhattan By Sail collaboration gives you a chance to see the beautiful skyline, get up close and personal with Lady Liberty and see the city from a different perspective. If you are immersed in the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, you take for granted how stunning it looks at night and when calmly floating around the New York Harbor, you have the opportunity to take it all in.


It’s The Perfect Pregame

Each of our events take place on either Friday or Saturday nights and are early enough in the night to make it your pregame stop before heading out in the big city. Each ticket includes an open bar for beer and wine for the entirety of the sail as well as a cash bar for other drink options. If you are looking for a place to go after we party on the boat, we offer a free drink ticket at The Boogie Room which is a great bar located inside the Mondrian Park Avenue hotel that plays great music from the 80s and 90s.

Hearing Great Music

Yes, we are NYCountry Swag and we do have country music singer-songwriters and artists as our musical guests, however, part of our sail is just fun, great music. Each of our featured artists play classic covers, songs from all different genres and eras that you will for sure know and love, even if you aren’t a country music fan. In between sets, we blast our playlist of fun tunes and dancing is certainly encouraged.

Something Different To Do 

Whether it’s a date night with your spouse, moms-night-out or just grabbing your friends, our Country Edition Sail is a damn good time. What is better than an ocean breeze, a beautiful backdrop and a cold drink? We can’t think of a better way to spend a Friday or Saturday night.

Our next event takes place on September 27th and we are featuring Baker Grissom, a songwriter and artist that caught us off guard with his incredible debut EP, Saturdays and Sunday. We have a strong feeling that in just a few years, you will be proud to tell your friends that you saw and got to meet Baker before he was a big star.

Our final event of the season will be on October 11th and we have Kalie Shorr performing. Kalie is energetic and her original songs will definitely make you fall in love with her. She is set to release her debut album next week and is excited to perform in New York City music fans.



The Hero Collection by NYCountry Swag is inspired by the men and women of the Fire, Police and Military Departments across the country. A portion of sales from each purchase is donated to different foundations that support our heroes. We are dedicated to honoring their service and remembering their sacrifice.
