In 1872, the ship Alfred brought the first load of Cognac from France to Shanghai. In 1992, with the same name and painted white, Tall Ship Blue Clipper repeated this historic voyage.

The Ship

In the construction of the hull modern elements are mixed with traditional elements, such as a clipper bow, an elegant yacht stern and a long ballast keel. The teak deck gives a great feel to the ship and is built on top of steel plates.
