Clipper ship is a kind of high-speed sailing boat, which was invented by American John Griffiths. This kind of ship is sharp, prominent and hollow at the front end. It is thin and long in appearance and small in tonnage, but its speed is very fast.
The clipper ship is a kind of sail cargo ship that was famous in the era of sail warships. Even in the early days of steam ships, it was praised for its speed. When the clipper ship sails at full sail on the sea, its bulging sails and slightly higher body are like a huge Dragonfly sliding at the discount of water.
