Airbnb has opened up a new competition, offering a chance to stay in the latest creative overnight accommodation – the Arabella yacht – floating between New York's Ellis Island and Liberty Island. Find out more here...

A yacht docked between Ellis Island and Liberty Island, on the Hudson River in New York, is Airbnb's newest innovative limited edition accommodation offering. The thriving rental website has recently offered a two-storey floating house on the River Thames and even a dangling cable car above the Alps as once-in-a-lifetime accommodations to lucky competition winners and now the competition is on for this Lady Liberty adjacent floating bedroom. 

The contest is in honour of Immigrant Heritage Month and will offer one winner and a guest the chance to experience a curated, themed meal with a few surprise guests in Ellis Island's Great Hall, a private tour of the grounds and museum and a late-night cruise aboard the Arabella yacht, before docking for the night. Breakfast will be served onboard in the morning.
