Sail on the Clipper Stad Amsterdam

Take a step back in history and experience the speed and luxury of sailing on a Clipper sailing ship.

Clippers are sailing ships designed for speed! Popular in the 1840 and 50’s – and compared to other sailing vessels of the time – clippers were over canvassed, overpowered, and built to sail long distances. All of this required a captain and crew of great courage and skill to sail as fast as possible!

The Clipper Stad Amsterdam is on a world tour that will cover well-known cities around the globe, such as Tokyo, Shanghai, Sydney, Mumbai, Cape Town, New York, and London. The Clipper provides adventurous travelers & sailors with the opportunity to participate in a segment of the tour. Take a step back in history and experience the speed and luxury of sailing on a Clipper sailing ship!

Our world tour presents a unique chance for not only youngsters but everyone to reserve a voyage to very exciting destinations. It’s an opportunity for all, irrespective of age, to embark on an unforgettable holiday aboard the Clipper.

After the two-year round-the-world voyage, in honor of Amsterdam’s 750th-anniversary celebrations, the Stad Amsterdam will proudly sail back into her home port as SAIL Amsterdam’s flagship in August 2025.

The focus of the world tour is on increasing job opportunities for young people aged 18 – 27. By creating opportunities for them to come on board, the world tour provides a platform for changing the lives of young people across the world.

Andi Manser (Captain Clipper Stad Amsterdam): “During a voyage, participants are not only going to learn new skills, but also create lasting memories and forge friendships that last a lifetime. Participants of these youth trips grow in self-confidence because they have challenged themselves, pushed their limits, and each play an indispensable role in the team. An experience that stays with them for the rest of their lives. It’s a truly inspiring initiative and I’m so grateful that we, as the crew on board the Clipper Stad Amsterdam, can be a part of it.”
