Sea Cloud

Venetian Roundtrip Cruise

The Sea Cloud, built in 1931, was at that time the largest private yacht ever constructed. Since then the world’s most luxurious tall ship has been restored to its original splendor, generating excitement in each port. The Sea Cloud's most remarkable features are her four masts, 30 sails and the tangled web of lines stretching 178 feet skyward to support the rigging. Unlike modern sailing ships, all sail setting on the Sea Cloud is done by hand. The vessel offers various types of accommodation ranging from suite, deluxe and standard cabin. The travelers will feel so well from the very first moment with the private atmosphere on board, the Lido bar, the stylish restaurant. All guests on board will share the common dream of sailing out into the world in exclusive company.
