The first pilot boat in approximately 75 years to be built specifically for New York area pilot service was delivered to the New York and New Jersey Sandy Hook Pilots' Associations in May of 1972. The new boat is on station 24 hours in all kinds of weather, ready to deliver pilots to inbound ships and take them off on the outbound leg. This paper describes some of the major features of the pilot boat, christened New York, and presents the design approaches used in the development of a ship to meet the special requirements of pilot boat service for the Port of New York.
