This is a trip with a difference. 

Rest, refreshment and relaxation are guaranteed.

And for the more adventurous, the crew will be happy to instruct in the basics of sea sailing a cross-rigged three-master.

Truly the best of both worlds in a most exclusive setting.

comfort and style

The 10 guest cabins each have a porthole, telephone (satellite connection) and air conditioning. All cabins have their own luxury bathroom, with wash stand, shower and toilet.

The wood and copper trimmings give the cabins a classical feel. All cabins are spacious for one, comfortable for two and can even be altered to house four people.

private dining

The Clipper's longroom is equipped with a luxury bar and small library.  

The warm woodwork, luscious copper and circular staircase with graceful lattice work all recall the legendary Cutty Sark. 

It can seat up to 55 guests but for this trip it will be exclusively available to the winning party of 10.

culture, shopping and amazing bars: what's not to like?

The adventure finishes in one of England's most iconic locations.

After enjoying another amazing breakfast, you will disembark with a chance to explore the jewel of the North East.

Take the chance to visit the Baltic Centre for culture and food. 

Or take a stroll along the famous Quayside, with its landmark buildings, bars and restaurants, and the seven bridges that span the River Tyne and have become the iconic image of Newcastle Gateshead.

Meet our 2016 winners

Our 2016 competition was won by Mike Hammond and his five friends who travelled from Plymouth to pick up their unique prize. 

"The white outline of Portsmouth’s iconic Spinnaker Tower and a deep blue holiday brochure sky provided an awe inspiring backdrop as Stad Amsterdam moved away from the dock and entered the busy waterway of the Solent. Once the Tower was a distance blur on the horizon, the pilot transferred to a small boat and sped his way back to shore without even a splash of a wave touching his shiny shoes."
