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.

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;
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.
