ⓘ Royal Albatross (ship)

The Royal Albatross is a four-masted Barquentine privately owned, built as a luxury vessel. She operates from her home berth at Resorts World Sentosa on the island of Sentosa in Singapore.

The Royal Albatross is a unique luxury tall ship with four masts, 22-sails, more than 200 ropes, three decks and is comparable with a luxury yacht; but unlike the typical super-yacht, it looks and operates like an old-world galleon or pirate ship. After a 5.5 year reconstruction inside out, the Royal Albatross is one of Singapore’s premier hospitality venues with a passenger capacity of 200 alongside and 149 sailing all of which can be accommodated on a continuous upper deck.

The Royal Albatross started its operating life in Chicago where it was known at Windy II, cruising the Great Lakes prior to a journey in 2008 that brought it over 15.000 kilometres from the moderate climes of North America to the tropical waters of South East Asia. She was the first U.S. certified four-masted barquentine since about 1920.

Since arriving in Singapore, approximately 360.000 man hours were invested re-designing, re-fitting and certifying the Royal Albatross. It features 22 sails, over 650 square meters of canvas and over 60.000 RGB lights.

                                     

1. Sunset Sail City Lights

In October 2016, the Royal Albatross launched its first Sunset Sail on the weekends to the public. The harbour cruise starting from Resorts World Sentosa, is a 2.5-hour dinner cruise with live entertainment on board, sailing towards the outskirts of Marina Bay with the city skyline in the distance, and then heading back between the Southern Islands of Singapore to Sentosa. The Royal Albatross sailing tickets can be purchased on its website and other resellers like SISTIC.
