Star Clippers announce name of new ship

The long-awaited name of the fourth addition to Star Clippers' fleet has been highly anticipated for months. We are delighted to formally introduce to you, Flying Clipper.


She will be the biggest and the most ambitious of the Clipper fleet to date, carrying 300 passengers, measuring 8770 tons GRT and powered by 35 sails totalling more than 6.350 m2.

She is 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.

She will be the world’s largest square rigger and the largest ship of its kind afloat. The magnificent Flying Clipper is anticipated to be on the water by the end of 2017.
