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 180 (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.
