About the Albatross
The famous clipper ‘Albatross’ was built in the Baltimore Shipyards in the United States. It was typical of the small, yet fast ships produced in America at the time. Designed for speed and manoeuvrability, these ships date back to the 1800’s and were famous for their elegant lines, large deck area and plenty of space for cargo.
