Star Clippers: New-Build
| February 5, 2016

Did you miss the BIG news last year?

Star Clippers announced in May 2015 that it has started building a fourth ship to add to its fleet of graceful square-riggers; its 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 project 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 square meters of sails. The new ship will technically be a five-masted, square-rigged barque.

The new member of the fleet will be a near-replica of the even more impressive France II, commissioned in 1911 and the largest square rigger ever built. Just as the original France II eclipsed Preussen more than a century ago as the world’s largest square rigger, the Star Clippers new-build will replace its sister, Royal Clipper, as the largest ship of its kind afloat today.

Star Clippers: Do Everything or Nothing at All
| January 29, 2016

On Star Clippers you are encouraged to help raise the sails, learn how to tie knots, visit the open bridge, lay in the bowsprit net-suspended above the rushing sea, and most unique of all, climb the mast to the Crow’s Nest for a stunning panoramic view. The alternative, just relax in casual elegance and enjoy sailing the high seas. Here are some of our favorite images!
