Water Logged: After Two Years, “The Americans” Star Matthew Rhys is Shutting Down His Wooden Boat Tours


Two years ago, after four years of preparation, the Rarebit set sail around New York Harbor and Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn.

The Rarebit is the wooden boat from the Hemingway era reconstructed by “The Americans” and “Perry Mason” star Matthew Rhys. He’s Welsh, hence the Rarebit.

But Rhys has just announced the end is coming in November. He says in a post: “Very sadly, due to unforeseen circumstance, we are having to close our business permanently at the end of this season. We wanted to say and enormous Thank You to all of you who Chartered with us. As said, our charters will come to an end with close of season – Sunday November 12th so anyone who’d like to sail with us – you still have time! Just a reminder – we have plenty of daytime cruises available. Enormous Thanks – The Rarebit Team.”

No reason was given by his tour company, which he named Moveable Feast, for Hemingway. Rhys owns the 1930s wooden boat with his partner, actress Keri Russell. So before the Sun also sets, give them a call for a last tour of New York’s high seas!
