The adventure begins.

In 1994 Hamburg-based businessman and ship owner Hermann Ebel and his partner Harald Block took over the legendary SEA CLOUD. But even then it was clear that for reasons of economy, they would need additional projects; SEA CLOUD CRUISES's entire organization was simply too expensive for one single ship alone. The decision for a second ship was also made easier by slight pressure from the SEA CLOUD's charterers - their demand much outweighed supply.

The standard for the new ship was already set: If the new SEA CLOUD II was to sail the Kiel waters with her legendary sister, she could only be a true windjammer with five-star luxury on board. And one more thing was beyond doubt from the start: The second ship from SEA CLOUD CRUISES should also be a square rigger. Because only a square rigger can give passengers the best possible sailing experience.

After these major factors were decided, more questions arose: Would it be possible to construct a square rigger for sailing with the fewest number of crew? And would it be possible to find a shipyard to build such a ship at a justifiable cost?

Hermann Ebel and his team set out to search. The adventure of the SEA CLOUD II had begun.
