The Liberty Clipper is rigged as a traditional gaff-rigged schooner. She carries three head-sails, or jibs. In addition, the sailing ship has a fore-sail and main-sail. The Liberty Clipper's size ensures safety and comfort aboard during a sailing vacation. Enjoy time on the main deck during the day without having to worry about the sails.

While the Liberty Clipper is traditionally rigged, she also carries modern comforts and amenities.

The ship has 12 cabins with accommodation for 24 guests. Each cabin is appointed with yellow pine paneling providing a warm and comfortable feel.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
