Bear a hand for the Wavertree.
In 1895, the Wavertree arrived at New York under sail. This painting by Oswald Brett depicts the historic event. While we cannot say for certain, the Wavertree may have been met by one of the McAllister tugs which have served New York Harbor since 1864. Legends are made of such moments. The Wavertree and her sister ships, in their day, were our responsibility.
We at McAllister take pride in being part of the history and lore of New York Harbor. The Wavertree is now at the South Street Seaport Museum and we support her restoration in order to keep maritime and nautical traditions alive for future generations. Bear a hana.
