Sea Cloud II – another Beautiful Design.

Sea Cloud II - Korcula October 9 2011

Today Korcula is dwarfed  by the presence of Sea Cloud 2 – an amazing boat, and I thought you might be interested in a little of her design and sailing history.

The Sea Cloud II was built as a sister ship to the original Sea Cloud that was built in 1931 by the Krupp family at their shipyard in Kiel.  The huge and impressive four masted vessel was commissioned by one of Wall Streets wealthiest traders, a Mr E.F. Hutton. Mrs Hutton, herself a successful business woman, designed the luxury yacht.

Please see www.seacloud.com if you would like to read more about these amazing vessels.

Work on Sea Cloud II was completed in 2001, combining ‘ the timeless elegance of windjammers of past with the highest safety standards and the luxurious comfort of modern cruise ships’.  You can take a tour of her cabins on the website and learn more about her majestic beauty there.

The Sea Cloud yachting philosophy is as follows;

Y  achting

A  mbience

C  haracter

H ospitality

T  radition

Even if you are not interesting in sailing I am sure you will agree that the Sea Cloud is an impressive vessel.  She and her sister ships visit Korcula five or six times during our summer season.  Each ship carries 60 passengers from all over the world, we wish them a happy journey to their next port of call.

      She really is an amazing ship, HUGE and majestic. I have not been on a cruise but have always enjoyed sailing – we grew up on the Otago Harbour and took sailing lessons as children. I hope to meet someone with a boat here before next summer! We do have a friend with a small motor boat but I would really love to sail here as well….
