ROYAL CLIPPER in Lisbon

The 4.425 GT sail cruise ship ROYAL CLIPPER called in Lisbon again on 28 October 2010 on her way to the Caribbean after the european season of 2010.
An interesting ship, she was introduced as the only five-masted ship in July 2000, but her origins date back to 1991 whwn she was launched in Gdansk, Poland as GWAREK. She was never completed and in 1998 Star Clippers purchased the hull which was lengthened by 23 meters before fitting out in Holland by the de Merwede shipyard.
