Sailing aboard the Nantucket Clipper
October 25 - November 4, 2003

The U.S.-flag Nantucket Clipper measures 207 feet long, 37 feet wide, and has a draft of eight feet, making it ideally suited for cruising shallow waterways. Built in 1984 in Jeffersonville, Indiana, by American craftsmen, the Nantucket Clipper's power is provided by two Detroit diesel propulsion engines rated approximately 500 SHP each, and maneuverability is increased by a 200 HP bowthruster. The Nantucket Clipper is classified +A1 Passenger Vessels +AMS by the American Bureau of Shipping, and is certified for coastwise and international service by the U.S. Coast Guard.
