What were the last liners built with a clipper bow? I would like to know the answer for the Atlantic and Pacific.

Queen Mary 2 for the Atlantic and the Pacific. Not clipper enough?!

Although not a liner as such, the beautiful old 'Stella Polaris' was sailing into the 1950's.
There is a photo of her in the Gallery.

It was so, so sad when she sank during tow from her former role as a restaurant (I think) in Japan to a yard in China. One would have thought that with such a lovely, vintage vessel all precautions would have been taken.
