The SEA CLOUD is truly a queen of the seas. Since her construction as a private yacht in 1931 in Kiel, her elegant appearance and magnificent interior have inspired awe.
Today the four-masted barque is at home on the world’s oceans as a cruise ship extraordinaire. Those who have sailed with her in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, or perhaps across the Atlantic, return to her again and again.
As the largest sailing yacht ever built, the SEA CLOUD was commissioned by one of Wall Street’s wealthiest businessmen,
His wife, Marjorie Merriweather Post, heiress to a huge fortune and herself a successful businesswoman, designed the luxury yacht, with its then black hull, completely according to her liking.
