Star Clippers

Star Clippers has recently announced plans for a 300-berth square-rigged ship (above) that will be designed after one of the world’s two largest square-rigger, the France II. Now under construction at Brodosplit Shipyard in Croatia, she will join the fleet in 2017. Elsewhere, UK-based Riviera Travel is in the course of doubling its fleet of owned river ships to four, with the Jane Austen and the Charles Dickens, while Germany’s 550-berth Deutschland has gone to US buyers Absolute Nevada, who will charter her to Semester at Sea as the World Odyssey.
