The Royal Clipper sets sail at dusk. She is my favorite ship and the largest clipper ship in the world, inspired by the tall ship, Preussen, built in 1902. The Royal Clipper was built in Amsterdam in 2000. She is a 439’ square rigged vessel with 5 masts and 56,000 sq. ft. of sail (42 sails). She holds 227 passengers and 106 crew members.
