The Sea Cloud Spirit is a one-of-a-kind cruise ship and the third ship to the fleet of luxury sailing vessels operator Sea Cloud Cruises GmbH. The three-masted full-rigged ship of the Hamburg-based shipping company Sea Cloud Cruises follows the example of its two elegant sisters, the Sea Cloud and the Sea Cloud 2, in combining traditional rigging with 21st century comfort.
Ordered by the Hamburg-based operator Sea Cloud Cruises, the vessel is designed to meet the demand from both independent travelers and the charter market, mainly in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.
Up to 136 passengers can be accommodated in 69 cabins aboard the 126-meter-long ship, which was christened in the port of Palma de Mallorca on September 3, 2021. With its 28 sails, the traditionally hand-sailed Sea Cloud Spirit reaches a speed of about 14 knots under optimal wind conditions. In addition to the sails, the ship is equipped with two economical, environmentally friendly diesel-electric engines.
Apart from state-of-the-art technology, the Sea Cloud Spirit impresses with its luxurious interiors, which were designed by Hamburg-based planning office Partner Ship Design. On four decks, the elegant cruise ship features, among other things, 25 balcony cabins, an exclusive wellness and SPA area, and a fitness room with a sea view.
Sea Cloud Spirit is a new level of comfort to sailing cruise passengers. In addition to beautiful views from private balconies, it has the first elevator ever to be installed on a large sailing ship that will connect its five different decks.
This is unique combination of luxury accommodation, technologically advanced amenities and traditional sailing.
