Meeting point

Pier 83, W 42nd St, 10036, New York

  • Take a thrill ride on the Hudson with New York's only jet-powered speedboat experience
  • Ride the Beast to the Statue of Liberty at heart-pounding speeds of over 40 knots
  • Make huge waves in front of Liberty Island and see other famous landmarks in NYC from the water

If you're looking for a leisurely punt down the river, you're on the wrong page. Thrill-seekers – this one's for you.

The Beast is the only jet-powered speedboat experience in New York. Buckle up, hold on to your hats (seriously), and prepare yourself for a 45mph ride to the Statue of Liberty on the back of this bright-green river monster.

The Beast has 1400 brake horsepower, with two ZF 3000 marine gears powered by twin Hamilton Jets. No, we don't understand either, but basic translation: it brings the power.

Rocket through the water down to Liberty Island with plenty of twists and turns and splashes so big you'll be in danger of dousing Lady Liberty's torch. Leave your cameras at home – you're going to get wet!
