The Sheepshead Bay "party boats" at dock.

One Southern Brooklyn pol is doubling down on his call to end the docking of party boats in Sheepshead Bay.

Assemblymember Steven Cymbrowitz, who has long called for an end to the havoc he says party boats wreak on his district, says that an 11 p.m. curfew recently implemented by the city isn’t enough to resolve the longstanding issues of traffic, rampant littering and drunk, disorderly passengers utilizing the service.

“Passengers get drunk on the 7 p.m. run the same way they do on the midnight run and are just as unruly pre and post-sail,” he said. “Under the current policy the city is putting the neighborhood in danger.”

Under current law, “booze boats” are allowed to dock in Sheepshead Bay as long as they do so before 11 p.m.

“Moving the boats to another location is a good compromise that still gives the boats a place to dock but preserves the safety and quality of life of the community,” Cymbrowitz said.
