Presenting a fleet of unique and authentic Clipper Ships that sail to the world’s finest destinations, Star Clippers offers a distinctive voyage that seamlessly blends destination immersion with a private-yacht ambiance. Stepping onto three exceptional ships, including the world’s largest square rigger, evokes the grandeur of a bygone era of sailing, harmonising grandeur, tradition and adventure. These vessels host inviting accommodations, elegant lounges, expansive teak decks and exceptional culinary creations in the onboard restaurants. Attentive and warm crew members cater to every need, enveloping guests in a seamless experience.
Sailing the world aboard an authentic tall ship offers a new perspective on cruising, where modernity and classic allure intertwine, creating an inimitable journey. Star Clippers’ sailings embrace the romance of the open ocean, navigating using wind charts to access smaller ports and harbours beyond the reach of larger vessels. While preserving the charm of sailing, modern ships guarantee luxury yacht comfort and amenities. This approach, powered by the wind’s sustainable energy, translates to a greener cruising experience, a commitment that Star Clippers has upheld by implementing eco-friendly systems and practices across its three tall ships. The core source of energy – wind propulsion – is both abundant and emission-free. Striving to maximise time under wind power not only offers an authentic tall ship experience but also reduces fuel usage, benefiting the environment. In the Caribbean, where wind predictability is high, the ships rely on wind power for up to 70 percent of the time, significantly minimising auxiliary engine use.
