Hornblower Yachts will
soon begin shuttling tourists to the Statue of Liberty, reports said.
The National Park Service has chosen Hornblower Yachts, Inc. to run the ferry concession from lower Manhattan and New Jersey to Liberty and Ellis Island.
For more than twenty years, the Statue of Liberty ferries have been run by Circle Line.
Hornblower has won a ten-year ferry service concession, expected to begin in October. The company currently runs ferries to the island prison of Alcatraz in San Francisco.
