Clipper has been building our current range in our proven Chinese shipyard in Ningbo, China for over 15 years and most importantly invests in employing our own experienced Western boat builders full time overseeing new product development and final quality control. They manage our product full time in China and live in the region working daily with our shipyard management and staff to oversee our motor yachts in build.

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.
