Who Invented the First Clipper Ship?

Answer

The clipper ship was invented by American shipbuilders in the late 1840's as a new kind of merchant vessel. A clipper was technically a sailing ship that had three masts on which a large expanse of square sails was set. It was designed to carry a small and highly profitable cargo over long distances at very high speeds.
