Sea Cloud Cruises

About Sea Cloud Cruises

A passion for exclusive tall ships and sophisticated indulgence has shaped the legacy of our two yachts since their creation.

The American millionaire couple Edward F. Hutton and Marjorie Merriweather Post were already owners of several luxury vessels when, in 1929, they commissioned the construction of a new ship - one that would be larger and more extravagant than anything that had gone before. The legendary SEA CLOUD was born, a yacht whose beauty would, 70 years later, go on to inspire the building of its sister ship, the SEA CLOUD II.

Yet as elegant as our two windjammers may be, these two vessels are imbued with sailing tradition: On these ships, sailing is not just for show - it is a true craft. When the orders ring out over the deck and the crew climb the masts to hoist the sails, every single manoeuvre marks a centuries-old ritual being brought to life.

Why Choose Sea Cloud Cruises

The art of sailing

The sailing crew pull with all their power on a hemp rope that disappears into the rigging twenty metres above their heads. The mighty sails flap in the fresh sea breeze, starting a tug-of-war with the team down below.

Flawlessly polished brass shines in the sunlight. Then with one final strong tug on the main halyard, the yacht is ready to feel the full force of the wind - mission accomplished!

It takes our crew almost one hour to hoist the sails by hand, and it is a fascinating spectacle each and every time. Once firmly enveloped in a romantic tall ship setting, you will understand just why our vessels are the most beautiful part of the adventure:

After all, a voyage aboard a majestic tall ship is much more than just a cruise.

A private yacht experience

Part of the unique appeal of a private yacht is the intimacy of the setting and that feeling of being amongst friends.

The three SEA CLOUDs offer our guests exactly the same experience thanks to their sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere. Up to 85 crew members are there to ensure that all of our guests on board - a maximum of 136 travellers from all over the world - enjoy a unique cruise that is tailored to their needs.

Our personal service and laid-back ambience satisfy the highest expectations and allow you to enjoy an exquisite experience at your own pace.
