March, 2024

My fiancé & I had our engagement photoshoot on board. I can’t rave enough about how wonderful of an experience that we had. Ian and Kim were both incredibly friendly and professional. 10/10. We will definitely be renting from them again in the near future!

NYC’s #1 Luxury Yacht. See NYC like never before! PLEASE READ DESCRIPTION

Entire family enjoyed thoroughly the entire trip. Italo and Mariann are very helpful and understanding the importance to our event and helped rescheduling my trip and arranging the pilot and crew at the last minute and made our trip memorable.

Ian and his crew were beyond incredible— extremely accommodating, friendly, and knowledgeable— we cannot recommend them enough! A beautiful boat that is very obviously lovingly maintained— a true highlight for any trip.

February, 2024

Highly recommend! Italo and Mariann are amazing people and hosts. I was originally planning to do an unlimited mimosa and Buffett boat that was offered by another company, but after reading more reviews and realizing the price was essentially the same, I swapped to this boat ride idea instead. And let me just say - it is worth every penny! Nothing beats having your own private boat and Italo and Mariann are very accommodating. I took my friends on this for my birthday and everyone had a blasted. If you’re looking for an experience in NYC, this is for you.

Ian and his deck hand Dave were fantastic hosts. I’d highly recommend this charter

January, 2024

I celebrated the birthday party for my wife with a group of her close friends and Italo and Mariann. It became a huge success and a huge surprise to her. This yacht brought us the most joyful birthday experience ever. Even if it was a cold winter night, we still love staying outside to enjoy the skyline of nyc. We appreciate Italo and Mariann a lot for the detailed and warm hospitality. They are so friendly and responsive. We had a super customized charter. Everything was way beyond my expectations.

#1 Sailboat Charter In NYC ★★★★★

Go Sailing NYC

Perfect experience for a family, small group of local friends, or tourists. Stunning city skyscapes and incredible sunset views! Gino and Caleb were an amazing staff - friendly, knowledgeable and so accommodating. The night had an unexpectedly perfect ending with a fireworks show over the Hudson, too. Could not recommend more!

We LOVED our sail today! Captain Caleb and Gino were both knowledgeable and accommodating. My family and I went to celebrate my birthday. We highly recommend the sail to anyone looking to see NYC and the sites from a different vantage while enjoying the water and an awesome boat ride. We can’t wait to do it again!!!!

Wonderful brunch cruise along the Hudson River. We were made very welcome, the captain and crew really looked after us, very relaxed. This is a must on your trip to NYC. I will definitely do this again on this gorgeous boat! Thank you for such a lovely time.

We loved our experience with them! Boarding was super easy and the captain was experienced and witty. They set us up with drinks and music right at the beginning and really let us do our own thing the entire trip checking in to see what we needed often. None of us had any experience on a boat but anything we needed to know they explained early on (not a whole lot other than safely moving around the boat because they handled everything). All 6 of us would do it again, loved it! Phenomenal way to view the city skyline and Statue of Liberty!

We had such a wonderful time sailing yesterday. The boat was just the right size, the captain and crew provided excellent service. We hope to make this a monthly experience with you all. It was one of the most peaceful experiences we had in nyc. It was an excellent way to experience the city.

Go Sailing NYC

We decided to treat ourselves for a birthday/Anniversary private sail around the NY harbor. This sunset sail was absolutely beautiful and totally exceeded our expectations. Thank you Caleb and Gino for a wonderful evening.

Wow !! what a beautiful ride. The captain and crew were so accommodating, kind, and helpful. They really went out of their way to make it the best evening it could be. Thank you! Highly recommend, and hope to be back!

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Captain Martin this year and highly recommend sailing and/or boating with this company! All of the staff and crew were wonderful and I plan on returning as a passenger for years to come. Sailing in the harbor is a must for all NYC residents and visitors!

New York Yacht Rental

Yacht rental in nyc.

Renting a yacht is one of the top activities you can do in New York City, and it is available to everyone!

Why Rent a Yacht in NYC?

New York City is one of the most amazing cities in the world. Experiencing it from any angle offers an incredible time that cannot be replicated. 

However, most people only see NYC from the streets. This is a shame because the views from the water are on a whole other level. Renting a yacht in NYC allows anyone to reach this level. 

Plus, your experience on the yacht is entirely up to you. You can go for an elegant cruise focused on living it up in luxury. You can also go on a  fun-focused cruise that is simply about having some good times with some good friends. The possibilities are endless. However, no matter what you do, you’re doing it with one of the most identifiable backdrops in the world.

How to Enjoy Yacht Rental in NYC with Anchor Rides

In New York City, renting a yacht for the day is incredibly easy. This is because Anchor Rides streamlines the process and makes it more accessible than ever. 

Find a Location Near You

To rent a yacht in New York, you first need to pick a location. New York has  multiple points where you can hit the water, so you’ll need to look at them and see which works best for you. This will likely depend on exactly where you live and where you want to go. 

Select Your Departure Date

You’ll also need to set a departure date. This is the date you want to head out onto the water. 

Choose Your Yacht

With your location and departure date selected, you’ll see your yacht options. Each date has different options, so make sure you compare and contrast a few before making your final decision. 

Request and Confirm Availability

With your yacht selected, you can make a request. This will confirm that all of the options you have chosen will work. 

Reserve Your Yacht Rental

After this is confirmed, you can make the actual reservation. This involves putting down a small deposit which will be returned to you after the rental. 

Select Your Crew and Captain

With your yacht picked out, you’ll need to select the Captain and crew. These will be the people accompanying you on your yacht ride. 

Start Your Excursion in NYC

With all of this picked out, you’re ready to cruise in the Big Apple. Just show up at your designated location on your designated date, and you’ll be taken care of.

Why Choose Anchor Rides for Your Yacht Rental in NYC?

Transparent pricing.

Other yacht rentals often try to sneak in hidden fees and charges that aren’t clear until the day you’re ready to hit the water. With Anchor Rides, you don’t have to worry about this. We don’t use hidden fees or charges, as  our straightforward pricing tells you exactly what you’ll be paying. 

Convenience

It is incredibly easy to book a yachting experience with Anchor Rides. We provide you with the yacht, the Captain, and just about everything else relating to the experience. All you need to do is decide what you want. 

Customize Your Experience

Other yacht rentals may present you with an option or two. However, Anchor Rides has multiple different boats, Captains, and options you can add on top of this. Overall, the experience you get from Anchor Rides is  entirely up to you .  

Professional Crew

Anchor Rides has the best crew in the business. Your  boat’s Captain will take care of the outing, the details, and the safety. So, all you have to worry about is having a great time with your yachting experience. 

Talk to a Charter Expert

Anchor Rides also has professional Charter Experts to help you. These people will work with you to ensure you get exactly what you need from your yacht experience.  They are your guide to getting the most out of your time and will help you whenever you need help.  

Looking to learn more about what your yacht experience in NYC could look like?  Contact us and let our Charter Experts guide you through creating a memorable event!  

Yacht Charters in NYC for Special Events

There are a lot of different places you can get married in New York City. However, none is more memorable or romantic than getting married while cruising atop the water. The happy couple can head out with a few friends for an incredible and intimate ceremony. 

Birthday Parties

For someone with a love of the water or cruising, there is no better gift you can give than a day out on a yacht. This is especially true in NYC, where the surroundings are unparalleled. 

Anniversaries

Spending your anniversary out on a  yacht is perfect. You have time to yourselves, you can relax, and you can even have dinner and drinks while you’re out there. 

Family Reunions

Having a family reunion in the heart of NYC can be loud and crowded. So, why not get away from it all? By taking your reunion out on the water, you give everyone a chance to hear each other while also having a great time. 

Graduation Parties

A graduation is a huge accomplishment and should be celebrated appropriately. What better way to do so than to head out on a yacht and really  live it up for the day ? 

Bachelor and Bachelorette Parties

If you’ve gone to a bachelor or bachelorette in NYC, you probably went bar hopping or enjoyed some incredibly touristy activities. For something truly unforgettable, you and your friends can board a  fun yacht , bring some drinks, play some music, and have the night of your lives.   

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to rent a yacht nyc.

On the lower end, yacht rentals in NYC can be around $1,000-$1,500. On the higher end, they can be $5,000 or more. This all depends on the side of the boat, the amenities, and any other extras. 

How Many Passengers Are Allowed?

Every yacht has a maximum number of passengers it can take on. Any more than this would be against the law. Yachts in NYC tend to range from a maximum guest count of around six to 13. However, you will have to check the specific details of the boat you’re interested in to see how many people it can take. 

Can We Bring More People Than We Planned?

If you’re going on an Anchor Rides charter, you can usually bring more people than you initially planned. This is the case unless it would exceed the maximum number of passengers, which is never allowed. Just make sure to contact us to make sure there are no other factors in play. 

What Safety Practices Are In Place?

There are a number of safety practices in place for every Anchor Rides charter. These start with limiting the number of passengers to safe levels. In addition, the Captain on every boat is instructed to follow safety procedures and look out for  safety issues above all else . 

What If the Weather Is Bad?

If the weather is bad on the day you charter a yacht, it may not matter. Often, you can simply wait for a bit, and the weather will pass. 

If the weather is so bad that your outing has to be canceled, you will be given a charter voucher that will allow you to book a similar outing within one year.

Testimonials

I have attended several events on the Yacht Justine. The plush furnishings and careful interior layout produce an atmosphere that is both elegant and intimate. Clean, comfortable, and spacious. A truly memorable way to experience the New York harbor.

Mike Mallner

We spent the first night of our honeymoon on Yacht Justine. It was the ten year anniversary of 9/11, and the tour around lower Manhattan was sobering and reflective, but also heart-stoppingly beautiful. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate our country and one of its greatest cities, and made the first day of our marriage magic and memorable. The accommodations were also very chic and comfortable, preparing us for the five-star resorts we had booked for the rest of our honeymoon. On top of spending the night in luxurious accommodations, we got a kick out of the novelty of knowing we were on a boat. All in all, it was a cherished experience, and one we would recommend to anyone looking for a truly special night.

Rachel Darwin , Communications Manager at Taft and Partners

Justine is beautiful, outside and in; and her crew is tremendous. I have been on many leisure trips on New York waterways on all types of boats from rustic sailboats to cruise ships, and can say that the aesthetic and ethos of one's immediate surroundings greatly impacts the experience. The elegant look of Justine, and the friendly unpretentious feel of her crew has been the number one factor in my enjoyment.

Sidney Oolongo , Events Coordinator

I had the great pleasure of coming aboard Yacht Justine for a cruise on NYE. Justine is a beautiful vessel and the staff was extremely accommodating and nice. I was very impressed by how attentive the staff was and all their efforts to make sure that I enjoyed my time aboard Justine. I will definitely book another cruise in the near future. If you are looking for a classy retreat from the city in the company of an incredible staff, this is where you want to be.

YACHT CHARTERS

Q What is different about your company?

Although everything that floats in New York City is marketed as a "luxury private yacht," Zenith actually owns and operates high-end, beautifully maintained yachts. Our photos, videos, and TV clips are accurate. For ten years, Zenith has served a global elite of CEOs, celebrities, and VIPs from the highest echelons of power. We are the top of the market. We encourage you to visit and see the yachts you are interested in yourselves, and compare. Please ask any local charter agent about our reputation.

Q Who will be on the yacht with us?

All cruises will have a minimum of three crewmembers aboard to assure your safe and enjoyable cruise. A Captain will helm the yacht at all times. All of our captains bring a lifetime of experience and are happy to answer questions and share stories. Two mates will assure safe docking and while aboard will assist guests with comfort, food, and beverages. Cruises booked with a private chef, bartender, or NYC tourguide will have these in addition.

Q Justine is a huge yacht! What is up with the 12 guest limit??

It's the law! The Justine is a private yacht. Under federal regulations any private boat taking paying passengers is only allowed SIX GUESTS, or TWELVE GUESTS for much larger boats – like the Justine - generally over 80 ft long. There are no exceptions; no passenger can be a "friend" or "crewmember" other than paid staff such as your event photographer, tourguide, or wedding officiant. Children do count as passengers. Our company is fully licensed and insured to take guests in a safe and compliant manner. We have been in business over 10 years. Charterers should be VERY wary of any operator telling you to put down excess passengers as "crew" or offering a "bareboat" contract in which the guests claim to be hiring the crew and taking liability for the cruise. None of that is legal nor insured. The Juliette is a unique vessel in NYC - an actual private luxury yacht which has been upgraded to meet Coast Guard commercial standards and legal for up to 40 guests. It still offers a private yacht look and feel.

Q I represent a client who has special security and privacy concerns.

We have broad experience in handling these concerns. All of our guests are entitled to 100% privacy and discretion. We never share any guest information. Crew do not carry phones or cameras. Private and diplomatic security personnel are welcome to travel with guests. Please contact us with any specific concerns or NDA's.

Q What can I bring?

Comfortable shoes and clothing and non-spray sunscreen. Cameras, phones, chargers. We will have towels, ice, and nonalcoholic beverages for every cruise. High heels and shoes with hard black soles are not allowed. Please do not bring any pollution hazards such as confetti, glitter, or streamers; fire hazards such as sparklers. hookahs, fireworks, or sternos; messy food items such as stews, soups, curries, chicken wings, ice cream cakes, bloody mary's, etc.

Q Can we bring children?

Yes, you are welcome to bring your children - HOWEVER they must be under constant adult supervision. We highly recommend bringing your nanny.

Q Can we bring pets?

We do not permit any pets aboard, other than authorized service animals assisting guests with a disability. We love furry guests but keep in mind they get scared, confused, and seasick on yachts.

Q Is there Wi-Fi?

No, but cell phones and streaming data will work throughout all of our routes.

Q What is the music situation?

Both yachts have speakers on all decks. Stereo systems play XM/Sirius radio or guests can Bluetooth their favorite music. You can bring a DJ with their own equipment as well.

Q Do I have to remove shoes aboard?

We do allow guests to wear their shoes aboard. We recommend comfortable options such as sandals or sneakers. High heels and mens' dress shoes with hard black soles are not permitted.

Q Are any parts of the yacht off-limits?

Guests are not allowed into the engine room or other clearly-marked restricted areas. However, anyone who wants an educational tour of the engines and machinery of the yacht is welcome to request this of the captain before or after a cruise. Staterooms with attached bathrooms are available on both yachts for private conversations, changing, hair/makeup, etc.

Q Where do you sail from? Where do you go?

Our home dock is Newport a private and upscale marina in the heart of the Jersey City Waterfront. It is located directly across the Holland Tunnel from Manhattan with PATH Train and garage parking onsite. We can pickup and dropoff guests at Chelsea Piers, North Cove (World Financial District), Dyckman Marina in uptown Manahttan, Liberty State Park (Jersey City), and One15 downtown Brooklyn Marina for varying fees. We can also serve the Hudson River Valley, Long Island, Connecticut and the Hamptons. Our typical 3 cruise covers all of Manhattan's iconic skyline, including the Empire State Building, Freedom Tower, Intrepid, Brooklyn Bridge, Ellis Island, and a close-up at the Statue of Liberty. Full day cruises can explore the Northern Hudson Valley, Sandy Hook, or Long Island Sound. The Hamptons, Montauk, Mystic, Newport RI, and Block Island require multiday bookings.

Q Which times/dates are available or recommended?

All of our cruises are custom and yachts are available any time, any day. Holidays and weekends are generally booked early. Some guests prefer spending all day under the sun, others prefer watching the city lights from the comfort of a private yacht at night. The most popular option is to book during sunset, 6-9pm or 7-10pm to experience daylight, sunset, and a bit of NYC after dark.

Q What if the weather is bad?

If the weather is unsafe to sail, we offer a no-fee rescheduling or if no mutually agreeable date is available, full refund. If the weather is not perfect but not unsafe (i.e. rain) we do our best to accommodate all guest requests. It is our goal to provide the best experience possible and in these situations we will try to work with you and see if better times/dates are available. The yacht interior is climate controlled and we do sail in rain. The contract does not provide for no-fee rescheduling or refund for inclement weather but we try to work with everyone to come up with mutually agreeable solutions.

Q I see the same boats listed everywhere? Where should I book this?

Our pricing is standardized and you should feel comfortable booking with any authorized agent or broker, or directly. Online "Airbnb"-style booking services may levy additional fees.

Q How do we pay for a cruise?

We take deposits on credit cards to reserve dates and expect the balance to be paid online via Zelle/ACH/"E-check". We also accept wires, bitcoin, cash, and company or bank checks.

Q What discounts do you offer?

Our pricing is based upon the substantial overhead costs of maintaining and professionally staffing multimillion dollar private yachts. We cut no corners and provide luxury service. Generally speaking, we do not offer discounts. We offer an experience which is often less expensive yet vastly superior to private service at exclusive Manhattan landside venues.

Q What is a customary tip?

Tips for hardworking crew are not included unless specifically added in advance. Tipping is appreciated and customary at the end of your cruise for an amazing experience. One tip for the entire crew, recommended at 18% of total charter fee, can be handed to the Captain and will be split evenly among the crew. Cash is preferred but credit cards, Zelle, and Venmo are also accepted.

Q I am an influencer! Please give me a free cruise so I can post photos of your yacht and get you tons of business!

Thank you but pass.

Q Are we allowed to swim from the yacht?

New York Harbor and the Hudson River have fast currents and heavy boat traffic and are NOT safe for swimming. We do permit swimming from the Justine yacht only, as part of full-day or overnight cruises. We will take you to a more protected area such as Croton, Coney Island, Manhasset Bay, or Sandy Hook. There is no swimming from the Juliette yacht, or as part of any half-day cruise.

Q Can I fly my drone?

We allow guests who wish to take a drone photo or video to do so from a dock only, either before or after the cruise. Any aerial videography from a moving yacht MUST be discussed and cleared with management well in advance (not during boarding). We must discuss homepoint settings, EMF interference, and have insurance and a damage deposit on file.

Q Are there any kayaks, jetskis, etc?

We operate primarily in New York Harbor, which is not a safe place for kayaking, wakeboarding, etc. We can bring water toys upon request for overnight or fullday charters leaving the metro area. Any jetskis require coordination with a third party rental company, which requires advanced planning.

Q Can we film aboard?

You are welcome to photograph/film and share whatever you like. Commercial film and photo shoots should be aware that we do not require permits to film aboard but marinas and docks will require permits for dockside filming. Our crew can help with layouts, positioning, and recommend locations and angles. All commercial film and photoshoots are subject to a $1250/hr flat fee, 4 hour minimum, with a credit card on file for overtime. We can assist with chase boats. Staterooms are available for monitors, hair/makeup/wardrobe, etc.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

Q What are your policies regarding masks and the Coronavirus?

We will fully comply with state and federal regulations which apply. Our guests are not currently required to mask and social distance aboard during the 2023 season.

Q Am I allowed to smoke on the yacht?

Smoking and Vaping is permitted on outside decks only. Ashtrays will be provided. Guests are not allowed to bring any smoking device with hot coals, such as hookahs, which present a fire hazard.

Q Are you Handicap-accessible?

No , these yachts are not ADA-compliant. All guests must ascend stairs to board and to access the top deck. However, we have hosted many guests with limited mobility, who board with the assistance of crew and family members. Please contact us with any specific concerns or requirements.

Q Will I be seasick?

New York Harbor generally is fairly calm although waves can be made by criss-crossing ferries. If you are prone to seasickness we recommend taking an over-the-counter medication such as Dramamine one hour in advance, not drinking alcohol, and spending time on outside decks. Crew cannot dispense medications.

Fresh gear, striking art on display at citi field's new..., police sink ‘east bay pirates’ after seafaring bandits terrorize houseboats, yachts.

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

Suspected seafaring bandits terrorizing San Francisco Bay residents are now landlocked in jail cells.

Three suspected maritime burglars accused of breaking into a business on Embarcadero, San Francisco’s iconic east-facing waterfront, were arrested in the Oakland-Alameda Estuary on March 28, Oakland police said.

It’s a major step forward for residents living in houseboats and yachts on the 800-foot-wide waterway, which endured almost a year of theft and physical confrontations with the so-called “East Bay Pirates.” 

Starting last summer, vagrants – believed to be from Oakland’s homeless encampments – used small boats to raid the large ships and steal valuables. Homeowners fought back and chased would-be thieves across San Francisco Bay.

The suspects, who weren’t named, allegedly broke into a business on March 13. They were spotted on surveillance video in the estuary.

Oakland police arrest alleged burglars as part of an ongoing crackdown on seafaring bandits in the Oakland-Alameda Estuary.

Law enforcement executed search warrants on the small boats and found the stolen property, according to Oakland police, which sent the case to the Alameda County District Attorney for charges.

The DA’s office didn’t immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s follow-up questions. 

The Oakland-Alameda Estuary separates the two cities and includes multiple marinas with about 3,000 boat slips, where a community lives on houseboats and yachts.

Suspected pirates use a small boat to board large ships and yachts in Oakland Harbor.

Last summer and fall, maritime burglars used small, stolen, or discarded boats to ransack large vessels and steal anything they could get their hands on. 

Then they would either sink the ships or dump whatever was left of the boats miles away in Oakland Harbor or along its shorelines.

Several residents in the area shared personal anecdotes about the dire situation in several municipal meetings last year, including the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission’s (BCDC) enforcement meeting.

This image shows items stolen by pirates in the Oakland-Alameda Estuary.

“The open shoreline of the (Oakland-Alameda) estuary is littered with sunken wrecks and derelict, end-of-life vessels, and crime has risen to truly intolerable levels,” former harbormaster Brock de Lappe said during an October BCDC meeting. 

“Multiple vessels have been stolen and ransacked. Victims have had to resort to personally confronting the criminals to recover their property without the benefit of police support. Is this an appropriate activity for a 79-year-old senior?”

One woman said she rescued a man whose sailboat drifted into the bay without a motor or any way to get back to shore after one of the “pirates” cut his boat line during an argument.

Residents in the area shared personal stories about the situation in several municipal meetings last year.

Other residents told Fox News Digital they chased would-be thieves across the bay, and they shared videos of the chase and surveillance footage. 

Dan Hill, who was one of the leaders in the area to bring the issue to the forefront, was one of dozens or more pounding the tables at municipal meetings, writing letters, and calling officials to address the problem. 

Each “attack” and theft can cost the owner thousands to tens of thousands of dollars, Hill told Fox News Digital in a previous interview.

Over the weekend, he said the situation appeared to have been “cleaned up pretty good” and praised the arrests. 

For months, jurisdiction question marks and eroding law enforcement staffing levels complicated the issue, but the Oakland and Alameda police departments worked together and teamed up with the Coast Guard, which has a base in the estuary.

Alameda Police Chief Nishant Joshi called it a “regional approach” to protect the waterway during an October 2023 interview with Fox News Digital . 

“In the waterways, it’s very difficult to draw a line,” Joshi said at the time. “There are no roadways or fence lines, so we all have a shared interest, much like crime as a whole, to deal with this as a regional approach.”

Joshi’s comments were echoed by the Coast Guard spokesperson, who said, “It’s a federal and state problem, and we’re all working to protect the best interests of everyone in the estuary.”

As for this particular case involving the suspected business burglars, Oakland police said the case and ongoing thefts in and around the Oakland estuary are still under investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Oakland Police Department’s burglary unit at 510-238-3951.

How the Key Bridge Collapsed in Baltimore: Maps and Photos

By Weiyi Cai ,  Agnes Chang ,  Lauren Leatherby ,  Lazaro Gamio ,  Leanne Abraham and Scott Reinhard

On Tuesday, a major bridge in Baltimore collapsed into the water seconds after it was struck by a cargo ship, sending vehicles on the bridge into the river below. The ship lost power and issued a mayday call shortly before it hit the bridge.

A video shows the cargo ship striking the bridge and the resulting collapse of the bridge.

The ship, a 948-foot-long cargo vessel called Dali, was about a half hour into its journey toward Colombo, Sri Lanka, when it hit a main pillar of the bridge. All crew members are safe, according to the ship’s owners.

Follow our live coverage .

A mayday call from the ship gave officials enough time to stop traffic at both ends of the bridge. The waters where the bridge collapsed are about 50 feet deep. By Tuesday morning, six construction workers who had been fixing potholes on the bridge remained missing as divers and other emergency workers on boats and helicopters continued to search for them. Two others had been rescued, and one was in the hospital.

The Francis Scott Key Bridge was opened in 1977 and carried more than 12.4 million vehicles last year. The bridge was one of the three major ways to cross the Patapsco River and formed part of Baltimore’s beltway.

The Port of Baltimore is a major trade hub that handled a record amount of foreign cargo last year. It is an especially important destination — the nation’s largest by volume last year — for deliveries of cars and light trucks.

Overall, Baltimore was the 17th biggest port in the United States in 2021, ranked by total tons, according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. The bridge collapse brought marine traffic there to a standstill, with seven cargo or tanker ships stranded in the harbor as of Tuesday afternoon.

Gov. Wes Moore declared a state of emergency for Maryland and said that his office was in close communication with Pete Buttigieg, the U.S. transportation secretary. The White House issued a statement saying that President Biden had been briefed on the collapse.
