When she debuts in late 2017, SPV Flying Clipper will be the world’s largest square rigger and the largest ship of its kind afloat today. She will also be the biggest and the most ambitious of the Clipper fleet to date, carrying 300 passengers, and powered by 35 sails.

Flying Clipper will have three pools, one that funnels sunlight through the ship’s atrium into the elegantly appointed dining room. There will be a water sports platform in the stern for use when the ship is at anchor and a variety of cabin grades, including 34 suites with balconies and four luxurious owner’s suites.

A restaurant in the light-filled atrium will accommodate all passengers for open-seating dining. The hallmarks of all Star Clippers ships will be incorporated into her design, such as the cosy library, the bowsprit net and the popular, al fresco Tropical Bar, where evening entertainment takes place.

While the ship will have ecologically sound, high-tech engines, it will, like its sisters, rely on wind power and its sails wherever possible.  For more information call 0808 231 4798 or visit www.starclippers.co.uk.
