Inspired by the legendary Tall Ship, Preussen, Royal Clipper has the proud distinction of being the largest and only five-masted full ship built since her predecessor was launched at the beginning of the century. With her complement 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 all the comfort of today. For connoisseurs of sail cruising, the 134 metre Royal Clipper offers the ultimate sea-going experience, balancing the grandeur, adventure and tradition of sailing with the superb service, amenities and accommodations of the finest modern yacht.
