About Clipper City
The newest and largest addition to the fleet, Clipper City allows guests to sail in style. With the ability to carry up to 134 passengers, she will show guests a good time in Manhattan. The original Clipper City was built as a cargo schooner in 1854, a short time prior to the Civil War. When she was rebuilt and refurbished, she was designed using the same plans for the original. In 1856, the U.S. Nautical Magazine & Naval Journal stated the vessel could sail from Chicago to Port Washington, Wisconsin, a full 115 miles in just seven and a half hours, which was extremely successful for her time period. The ship fell in disrepair and was reconstructed to her original beauty and has been sailing the waters of New York since 2009.
