The topsail schooner Clipper City is the newest and largest addition to the Manhattan by Sail fleet. After purchasing the plans from the Smithsonian, this ship was built in the 1980's to the specifications of a lumber-hauling schooner used for American industry more than a century ago. This flawless replication has been altered slightly to best accommodate a full ship of 150 passengers by adding appropriate seating, a full bar and a raised quarter beck back aft that grants unbelievable views of New York City. This will be an experience unlike any other, as tourists will be astounded by the mere presence of this ship that measures 158 feet in length and has masts that tower 135 feet above the water.
