Ship Information

Sea Cloud

With her rich mahogany and gleaming brass, the legendary Sea Cloud travels under 30 billowing sails trimmed by hand. Her original owners, heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post and financier E. F. Hutton, desired a craft like no other. They spared no expense to create the largest private sailing ship ever built and in 1931, Sea Cloud was launched. In the ’30s and ’40s, as she sailed the world, the four-­masted beauty was host to leaders including the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Sweden’s King Gustavus V. Now carefully restored by a team of master craftspeople, this great lady continues to offer elegant quarters, fine dining, and impeccable service. Praised by the world’s most discerning travelers, Sea Cloud receives consistently high rankings from Condé Nast Traveler.
