Star Clippers builds the world’s largest sailing ship


OceanEvent has secured a first charter event in May 2018. The five-mast full-rigged ship is to set sail in the second half of 2017, replacing the “Royal Clipper” as the world’s largest sailing ship.

With this new construction, the Monegasque ship-owning company Star Clippers is enlarging its fleet. With a length of more than 162 meters, the ship is almost 30 meters longer than the current record holder “Royal Clipper”. 150 cabins, 34 suites with balconies and four owner’s suites for a total of 300 passengers are being planned. Facilities include three swimming pools, a marina platform as well as a spa area with treatments available.

The new flagship is based on the “France II,” the largest windjammer of its time, which sailed the seas from 1911 to 1922. It is rigged as a skiff: with a fore-and-aft sail on the rear mast.

OceanEvent has secured one of the first charter slots in May 2018 on board the new clipper sailing ship – for a major maritime event. OceanEvent will pull together all three sailing ships available in the Mediterranean (Star Flyer, Royal Clipper as well as the newest addition) for one charter project. The routing is expected to be along the Cote d’Azur. The client wishes to hire various beach clubs for private parties along with other supporting land programmes.
