SEA CLOUD yacht

The Sea Cloud was the largest private yacht ever built.  The yacht's owner spared no expense in its fitting out.  She had a remarkable career entertaining royalty and being used on diplomatic missions.

In World War II, despite the initial objection of President Roosevelt who felt that she was simply too beautiful to be sacrificed, the ship was loaned to the U.S. Coast Guard and served against German U-Boats.  Stripped of her masts, painted gray and fitted with anti-submarine guns, she served as a weather observation platform in the Atlantic.

In 1978, German investors purchased and significantly refurbished the yacht.  Sea Cloud entered passenger service with a capacity of 65 passengers and 61 crew.  Sea Her most remarkable feature is its four masts, 29 sails and the tangled web of lines stretching skyward 178 feet to support the rigging. 

Today, Sea Cloud still feels very much like a private home and boasts some of the most attractive public rooms and cabins at sea.  Few ships can match the beauty of her teak decks.  The magic of the billowing sails create an experience that is impossible to duplicate.

Like all of our superyacht models, this SEA CLOUD  model has the following qualities:

- Plank-on-frame (very important), hollow hull construction, weighing less than 10 lbs (A solid hull of this model would weigh over 40 lbs, requiring 2 people to handle and a fortified table to accommodate.)
- The hollow superstructure is comprised of many individual thin pieces of wood glued together, not several solid pieces of wood stacking on top one another.
- Windows are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to the hollow structures.
- >95% of parts are wood and metal.
