First Coast Shipbuilding
Luxury Yacht For Clipper Cruise
The Yorktown Clipper is shown undergoing inspection at
First Coast Shipbuilding in Green Cove Springs, Fla. The vessel is scheduled for its first cruise on March 26, 1988.
Clipper Cruise Line recently announced that construction of its Yorktown Clipper is proceed- ing on schedule, with service slated to begin in
After being launched in November, the luxury yacht is being outfitted for an early March chris- tening. The $12-million ship is being built at
First Coast Shipbuilding Corporation in Green
Cover Springs, Fla.
The 257-foot Yorktown Clipper will accom- modate 138 passengers in 69 staterooms. She will retain the characteristic appearance and functionality of her sister ships: all-outside staterooms, teakwood decks and a shallow, 8- foot draft. Interior decor will also follow the lead established by the company's earlier-built ves- sels, and Clipper will retain single-seating dining on the new vessel.
The Yorktown Clipper's long length will make her more adept along the Maine coast, Florida
Keys and in the Caribbean's Leeward Islands, areas which will see new itineraries for Clipper in 1988.
