Clipper 68

Proven to be a perfect balance of nimble and robust

Our adapted expedition yachts are perfect for both gruelling weather conditions or low wind, with the maneuverability to go where larger boats can not.

Crew may be surprised by the power and size of a Clipper 68 when compared to smaller cruising yachts. The sails are larger and heavier, the winches handle more load, and since there is no headsail furling, all sail change evolutions are conducted by the crew. This is sailing purity at its best.
