Back to work and play

The HOS Browning supply vessel which had been anchored off 72nd Street since Friday pulled up its anchor Wednesday and headed back to its berth in Elizabeth. She was replaced by a luxury yacht, the Lunasea. While the North River anchorages are mainly used by tanker barges, super yachts will sometimes anchor here as well in the summer, and use their launches to shuttle back and forth to Manhattan via the Chelsea Piers Marina. The Lunasea is a 73m yacht owned by Yahn Bernier, a video game developer, though it is also available for charter.
