The New Star Clipper Edition has begun

New Ship Image

We are proud to announce that we have started building our fourth ship to add to our fleet; this will be our first new-build since the launch of Royal Clipper in July 2000. The new vessel, yet to be named, will be the biggest and most ambitious to date and will be launched in the second half of 2017, carrying 300 passengers, measuring 8,770 tons and powered by more than 6,350 sq.m of sails. The new ship will eclipse Royal Clipper as the largest tall sailing ship afloat today.

The on board restaurant will accommodate all passengers for open-seating dining and regular guests will find all the features that are familiar across the Star Clippers fleet. These include a cosy library, bowsprit net and al fresco Tropical Bar; the stern will also feature a water sports platform for use when the ship is at anchor.
