Review of Star Flyer

Star Flyer is a 4-masted barquentine (in comparison, the Royal Clipper tall sailing ship is 5-masted). The Star ship was built in 1991 by Scheepswerven van Langerbrugge, Belgium and is currently operated by the Swedish "Star Clippers Ltd" company and sailing under the Maltese flag.

History - construction & ownership

The 2,298-ton, 170-passenger cruise ship Star Flyer is a true clipper ship reflecting its proud heritage in the gleaming brightwork and polished brass. The minute you step aboard this unique vessel, you'll discover the new age of sail. Traditions of the past and comforts of the present day are happily living together here. Sister ship Star Flyer and Star Clipper are both 360-feet-long and though perfect modern ships, they were created for passengers who love luxury and traditions of the legendary era sailing ships.

Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport

Life on board the Star Flyer ship is relaxed like travelling on your own private yacht and guests never feel confined.

Star Flyer wiki

Star Flyer is a tall sailing cruise ship classed as a 4-masted barquentine. Until 2010, both vessels sailed under the Luxembourg flag. Although Star Flyer is a motorized ship, her engines are switched off whenever weather conditions permit so, and crew unfurls 36,000 ft2 of billowing 16 sails to capture the winds, thus propelling the barquentine at speeds 8 to 10 knots.

The most exciting of all daytime activities is climbing the mast with a rock-climbing harness and hanging out above the Sun Deck in a crow's nest. During the day, guests can also learn about sails and their repair. There are no shows, dinner and “captain’s story-time” are the main events in the evening. Room service is not available.

Star Flyer was deployed in Europe (Mediterranean) and the Far East until 2008 when Star Clippers repositioned the ship to French Polynesia for South Pacific year-round service.
