Sea Cloud Cruises is the last word in luxury yachting. Embark on your high seas voyage today.
The Sea Cloud has a long history on the water. It was built in 1931 as the personal yacht of Marjorie Merriweather Post and her husband American financier Edward F. Hutton. At the time of its construction, it was the largest and most expensive yacht ever built. It was later chartered to the United States Armed Forces to serve as a weather ship for the Coast Guard and Navy during World War II. It returned to private ownership after the war, later serving as the presidential yacht of the Dominican Republic. It and her sister ship Sea Cloud II now sail the seas, inviting guests to experience the traditional craft of sailing.
The two windjammers are the last word in luxury yachting, exuding a maritime atmosphere and hearkening back to the classic days of sailing. A crew of around 60 passionate seafarers make sure your every need and desire is met and that you feel right at home while on board. Both yachts are timeless, outfitted with carefully chosen decor, elegant teak wood decks, and warm and generously sized cabins that each have unobstructed views of the sea.
A journey on the Sea Cloud or Sea Cloud II is more than just a way to get from one port of call to another. The tall ships are part of the adventure. It you are passionate about sailing, you’ll love the age-old traditions of the ship. Orders ring out over the deck and the crew climbs the masts to hoist the sails by hand – a task that takes almost an hour, and is truly fascinating to watch.
The Sea Cloud and Sea Cloud II embark on voyages in Northern and Southern Europe, the Caribbean and Cuba, Central America and Costa Rica, as well as transatlantic journeys navigating through the waters charted by generations of discoverers. They are also available for private charters for a truly exceptional nautical adventure.
