World’s largest sailing ship launched

The world’s largest sailing ship was launched recently at the Brodosplit shipyard in Croatia. The Flying Clipper is a near replica of the France II ordered in 1911 at La Gironde shipyard Bordeaux.

The ship is intended exclusively for sailing, although she will have two fully independent electric engines. She will meet Safe Return to Port requirements with twin engine rooms and an additional bridge. The design will enable the vessel to return to port from around 2,000 nautical miles from shore.

Flying Clipper is designed to sail in all oceans including the Arctic and Antarctic and will be built to meet ice class requirements. She is expected to be capable of sailing at up to 20 knots under the favorable weather conditions and at around 16 knots under power.
