The Clipper Story – a tour of the Clipper Factory

Thank you for taking the time to visit the world of Clipper Motor Yachts. Many of you will be familiar with the Clipper range dating back to 1977 however you will see how much today’s range has evolved and expanded to now include the Cordova range of semi displacement luxury cruisers from 45 to 60 along with the Hudson Bay range of sedan sport yachts starting with the superb 54.

Clipper is a 100% owned Australian company who design and own the tooling and moulds for the range of new Clippers specifically designed for the way we use our boats in Australia. A focus on large open entertaining spaces, large shaded overhangs for the cockpits, walk around side decks, easy full stair access to the flybridge and one level entertaining and galleys make Clipper Motor Yachts the number one selling semi displacement cruiser in Australia today.

Clipper has been building our range in proven Chinese shipyards for many years and most importantly invests in employing our own experienced Western boat builders full time overseeing new product development and final quality control. Clipper’s Mark Campion manages our product full time in China and lives in the region working daily with our shipyard management and staff.

The result of this collaboration is state of the art designs combined with labour intensive hand crafted motor yachts featuring superb craftsmanship and wood interiors. Each Clipper is finished to the highest standard even being one of the few imported craft that meets and passes Australian electrical standards. We even have independent Australian Marine surveyors who have certified owners vessels in build for those who need more comfort of a vessel being built overseas.

Our team is experienced in delivering, operating and servicing luxury motor yachts and we work hard to ensure our owners are confident, happy and comfortable operating and cruising in their Clipper. My philosophy in this business is to ensure that our relationship with our owners gets stronger long after we deliver our clients boats and we commit to growing the enjoyment of boating by keeping our Clipper owners boating together with our famous on water Regatta’s.

If you are considering a Clipper don’t take our word for it, let us put you in touch with our many owners who will talk you through the decisions and questions you may have first hand and why they chose to join the Clipper family. As always we are here to help and support your research and questions and one day we look forward to seeing you join our family of owners..
