Three masts, extra large sail area, projecting bow, narrow streamlined hull
The clippers were built for speed, evolved first in American and later in British yards. They were used during the middle of the 19th century, as a comparatively very fast international trade and passenger ship. A dominant impetus for the developments was to beat the other ships out and back with the enormously fashionable tea, and capture the tea trade.
