Tall ship Blue Clipper is the perfect boat for those wanting a hands on sailing holiday experience.
Built in Sweden in 1991, tall ship Blue Clipper is a three-masted gaff rig schooner. With a clipper bow, original teak deck and elegant stern, she mixes a traditional tall ship feel with a modern build giving guests an authentic experience with all the mod cons.
Originally owned by the Brandy company Hennessy and named ‘Spirit of Hennessey, she appeared in many Tv programmes and commercials before being private bought in the late 90’s.
