Welcoming ' Flying Clipper ' in 2017

Welcoming ' Flying Clipper ' in 2017

Recently, Star Clippers officially released the name of our brand new ship, which will be joining the fleet towards the end of 2017. Flying Clipper will carry up to 300 passengers and will be the biggest and most ambitious of the Clipper fleet to date. She will measure 8770 tons GRT and will be powered by 35 sails totalling more than 6.350 m2. She will be a near replica of the dramatic France II ordered in 1911 at La Gironde shipyard Bordeaux, which was the largest square rig sailing ship ever built.

SPV Flying Clipper will be the world’s largest square rigger and the largest ship of its kind afloat today.

Founder and president of Star Clippers, Mikael Kraft, released the name of the fourth ship in the year which marks the 25th anniversary of Star Clippers. Flying Clipper will join her sister ships Star Clipper and Star flyer, and current flagship Royal Clipper on the open waters by the end of 2017.
