One of the largest sailing ships in the world, the 636-foot-long Club Med 2 is a huge five-masted cruise ship owned and operated by Club Med.

The impressively massive vessel recently called the port of Chios Island Greece, where Konstantinos Mil. Anagnostou was able to capture stunning aerial photos and video. Watch here.

Built from 1992 to 1996 in Le Havre, France, Club Med 2 harnesses power from computer-operated sails combined with diesel-electric power. Seven sails and four diesel generators powering two electric motors propel the ship to speeds of 10-15 knots.

The French-flagged luxury ship sails in the Mediterranean and Adriatic Sea during summer months, and the Caribbean in the winter, carrying up to 386 passengers and a 214 crew.

Weighing in at roughly 15,000 tons, Club Med 2 offers passengers a range of sporting and entertainment options, from windsurfing to ballroom dancing.
