Golden swan-shaped water taps, magnificent marble fireplaces, French antiques – as heiress to a fortune worth millions, Marjorie Merriweather Post was able to give free rein to her imagination when building her private yacht, which was launched in Kiel in 1931. Even today, every detail on the SEA CLOUD radiates the glamour of a bygone era. Her elegance seems timeless, as she has retained her unconventional charm.
“First a private yacht, then a floating diplomatic palace, later a warship – the story of the SEA CLOUD is more exciting than a novel.”
Captain Evgeny Nemerzhitsky
The most beautiful windjammer legend of all times and for many the true center of a journey for a maximum of 64 passengers.
The 32 cabins could hardly be more different: depending on your personal taste, you can live a little more luxuriously in one of the eight original cabins or a little more modern in the comfortable outer cabins.

Technical data and sail diagram
Only five years after the construction of the last freight-only, square-rigged sailing boat, the SEA CLOUD was launched in 1931, continuing the tradition of these famous sailors.
She is also built as a four-masted barque. The first three masts are rigged with yards, the last mast with gaffs. The yard sails ensure fast propulsion and are perpendicular to the direction of the ship, while the gaff sails are lengthwise and improve maneuverability considerably. With a total length of 110 meters, 29 sails and about 3,000 square meters of sail area, the SEA CLOUD is comparable to the famous P-Liners. The underwater hull, however, is not built like a freight sailor, but rather like a sleek yacht.
