World’s largest Square-rigged Sailing Vessel, Former Flying Clipper, to Sail for Tradewind Voyages
The Croatian industrial group DIV, owner of local Brodosplit shipyard, announces that the World’s largest Square-rigged Sailing Vessel, built as Brodosplit 483 (Former Flying Clipper), will be re-named, rebranded, and operated by the British cruise company Tradewind Voyages UK Ltd.
The ownership of Brodosplit 483 remains with the wholly owned subsidiary of the DIV Group.
The ship, built at an estimated cost of $100 million, is said to be the not only the largest but also the most advanced sailing vessel in the world and has sat laid up at Brodosplit since her completion following a legal dispute with Star Clippers.
