Star Clippers: Ship Profile, the Royal Clipper
Inspired by the legendary tall ship Preussen, Royal Clipper has the proud distinction of being the largest and only five-masted full-rigged sailing ship built since her predecessor was launched at the beginning of the 20th century. With her complement of 42 sails, Royal Clipper is a splendid sight to behold. You might think she was an apparition from the grand age of sail, but Royal Clipper is as new as tomorrow, boasting state-of-the-art navigation systems and every comfort and luxury one could wish for. For connoisseurs of sail cruising, the 439-foot Royal Clipper offers the ultimate seagoing experience, balancing the splendor, adventure and tradition of sailing with the superb service, amenities and accommodations of the finest private yacht. Royal Clipper carries just 227 guests in luxurious style. A full 19,000 square feet of open deck and three swimming pools create a wonderfully spacious and expansive outdoor environment. A convenient marina platform lowers from the stern for ocean access for watersports activities.
Anyone wishing to experience The Cruise to Surpass All Cruises, I without the slightest hesitation would suggest Star Clipper Cruises.
