The National Parks Service has selected Hornblower Yachts, Inc. to provide ferry service to the Statue of Liberty, replacing Circle Line-Statue of Liberty Ferry Inc.
As part of the 10-year contract, Hornblower is required to buy Circle Line-Statue of Liberty Ferry Inc.'s seven boat fleet.
The contract will be signed and awarded after a 60-day Congressional review period and Hornblower could begin operations as early as October.
