Star Clippers Building Massive Sailing Ship

September 5, 2007 By: David Eisen Travel Agent

Star Clippers says it will have the largest sailing ship in the industry by 2010, as it's set to construct a 7,400-gross-ton five-masted vessel. The ship will be 518 feet long and capable of operating independently of any port infrastructure, which will allow it to sail anywhere. The new ship will be 48 percent bigger than Star Clippers' Royal Clipper, but will carry only 30 percent more passengers with a double-occupancy capacity of 296 guests. The ship also will have two 592-square-foot owner's suites and 30 deluxe suites at 323-square feet each. Facilities include a two-tier dining room, a piano lounge and a sports bar with music and TVs. A retractable marina at the stern will provide water sports equipment and three onboard swimming pools-one with a glass bottom, a Star Clippers hallmark-will provide a way to cool off. The ship is modeled on France II, which was the world's largest sailing ship when it was launched in 1912. Visit [].
