In today’s spotted we bring you an image from the launching ceremony of Flying Clipper, a full-rigged sailing ship, held at Croatian shipyard Brodosplit on June 10.

Brodosplit said that Flying Clipper is now the world’s largest sailing vessel.

Built for Monaco-based cruise company Star Clippers, the newbuilding features a length of 162 meters and a width of 18.5 meters.

The 2,000 dwt ship has five masts and five decks and is able to accommodate 450 persons.

Built according to Ice Class requirements, Flying Clipper will be able to sail in all regions including the Arctic and the Antarctic regions, the shipbuilder said.

Apart from the yet-to-be-delivered newbuilding, Star Clippers’ fleet comprises three sailing vessels – Star Clipper, Star Flyer and Royal Clipper.
