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 owner’s 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.

Presently operating out of the Inner Harbor, Baltimore, Maryland, she is available for Chesapeake Bay cruises, carrying up to 149 passengers plus a 10 man crew.

Steel masts, reaching to 120’ above the waterline, steel bowsprit and jib boom, and hollow wooden booms, gaffs and yards carry 8,200 square feet of sail, giving the vessel a top speed in excess of 15 knots. A "center board up" draft of only 6—4" allows the 220 ton vessel to operate in the shallow waters of the Caribbean waters, which she will sail during the winter season.

Below decks the vessel has a passenger lounge with seating capacity for 70 persons, a full galley, 2 restrooms and a Jacuzzi tub. The lounge is convertible into 4 double staterooms for overnight cruises.

Forward of the lounge are a crew’s stateroom with 4 bunks and a 1st Mate’s stateroom, head, shower and sail storage.

Aft of the lounge are 2 luxury double staterooms, complete with heads and Jacuzzi tubs.

The engine room is located below the quarterdeck and contains the Caterpillar Model 3208 auxiliary propulsion engine and 2 Cummins 35 kW diesel generators.

The quarterdeck houses the Captain’s stateroom. Captain’s lounge, galley, head and Jacuzzi tub, and Navigation center with radar, weather fax, Loran C, VHF radio and a chart table.
