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.
There are eight stateroom grades available onboard Royal Clipper, the majority of them with ocean views, some with verandas. Like a fine resort, all the amenities are here. The décor is tastefully traditional. You'll find accoutrements of a classic yacht, where everything is ingeniously designed for comfort, ease and efficiency. Burnished brass fittings and mahogany brightwork recall the line's nautical heritage.Accommodation
