New Rules for Charter Boats

According to a recent release from the U.S. Coast Guard, domestic passenger boats (including charter party boats and yachts) operating around Manhattan are subject to a new rule. The release reads, "Each passenger vessel carrying more than 50 passengers and operating in the following zone: south of Pier 99 (Sanitation Pier/59th Street), south of Triboro Bridge and north of the Verrazano Bridge or in the Kills, must have armed, uniformed security personnel aboard to deter any potential threats and ensure passenger safety and security."
