CLUB MED 2 is a five-masted computer-controlled staysail schooner owned and operated by CLUB MED and operated as a cruise ship. It combines the power of seven computer-operated sails with more traditional diesel-electric power, having four diesel generators that power two electric motors.
CLUB MED 2 was launched in 1992 in Le Havre, France. Her sister ship CLUB MED 1 was sold to Windstar Cruises and renamed msy WIND SURF in 1998.
The ship, one of the largest sailing cruise ships in the world, carrying up to 386 passengers with a crew of 214, sails the waters of the Mediterranean and Adriatic Sea in the summertime, and the Caribbean in the winter, finding her way into anchorages larger cruise ships cannot reach.
The ship provides ballroom dancing, bridge and music, and sails at night making a stop each morning. A water sports deck can be deployed from the stern. CLUB MED 2's European destinations include ports in the Mediterranean, Adriatic, and Aegean Sea. Transatlantic voyages are offered in the spring (eastbound) and fall (westbound).

History

The ship was based on Windstar Cruises' smaller 5,350-ton, 148-passenger WIND STAR, WIND SPIRIT and WIND SONG motor sailing yachts. All were built by Société Nouvelle des Ateliers et Chantiers du Havre, France.

2019 In service.
