S/V CLIPPER CITY
Clipper City, Inc. of Baltimore, Maryland, recently took delivery of the sailing vessel CLIPPER CITY, named after an 1852 constructed Great Lakes Lumber Schooner, which she resembles.
The 158 Loa. topsail schooner was designed by DeJong & Lebet, Inc., Naval Architects of Jacksonville, Florida, and built by Haglund Boatworks of Green Cove Springs, Florida.
The luxuriously appointed below decks lounge and owners staterooms interiors were designed by Michael Asner Associates, Inc., Interior Architectural Designers of Baltimore, Maryland.
CLIPPER CITY is the largest United States Coast Guard certified sailing vessel in the United States and has an ABS load line, allowing for worldwide operation.
