BREAKING NEWS: SEA CLOUD SPIRIT – a new tall ship addition to SEA CLOUD CRUISES


• Fleet expansion for SEA CLOUD CRUISES in summer 2020
• The new tall ship SEA CLOUD SPIRIT with approx. 4.000 m² (43,056 ft²) of sail
area will expand the current fleet of the traditional Hamburg shipping
company.
• The newcomer will be equipped with 69 outside cabins, 25 of them with
balconies, carrying up to 136 guests
• With a generous offering of balcony cabins, a well-equipped spa and a fitness
area, the SEA CLOUD SPIRIT will set new standards in the luxury sailing
cruise market.

In the summer of 2020, SEA CLOUD and SEA CLOUD II
will receive a new sister. The SEA CLOUD SPIRIT will be built on a similar spirit and
philosophy, and will also be sailed traditionally by hand - thus reinforcing SEA CLOUD
CRUISES´ unique selling point in the market of sailing cruises.
“SEA CLOUD SPIRIT is arriving at the right time,” says Daniel Schäfer, Managing Director
of SEA CLOUD CRUISES, the Hamburg operator of small, fine sailing cruises. “SEA
CLOUD and SEA CLOUD II are enjoying a high demand from both independent travelers
and in the charter market. An expansion of the fleet, especially in the Mediterranean, is
expected and demanded by many guests. With an extended capacity of 136 guests, we can
also serve our charter market better with additional offers. However, despite the greater
capacity, intimacy of a private-yacht will still be preserved and sailing can be experienced in
an authentic manner.”

 

SEA CLOUD SPIRIT- ready to set sail in Summer 2020
Due to a close cooperation with the shipbuilder Metalships & Docks S.A.U. in Vigo Spain,
SEA CLOUD CRUISES can already state that the first cruises with SEA CLOUD SPIRIT will
be in 2020. The shipyard is known for its expertise in the construction of technically
sophisticated ships, such as platform supply vessels and for its highest quality standards in
the building of mega and sailing-yachts. Metalships will build the SEA CLOUD SPIRIT
based on the hull of the former construction project of SEA CLOUD HUSSAR. The
renowned planning firm Partner Ship Design in Hamburg, will be responsible for the design
of the ship´s interior. Upon completion, SEA CLOUD SPIRIT will present itself as a tall ship,
offering her guests plenty of space under the open sky, an exclusive spa/wellness
department, and an elegant interior-design combined with a classical yacht-style feel. For
the first time on a sailing ship, the SEA CLOUD SPIRIT will also have an elevator
connecting the various decks.

 

Luxurious and elegant- the SPIRIT is a true SEA CLOUD
Like her sister ships, SEA CLOUD SPIRIT sports clear, classic lines and high-quality
furnishings. 25 of the 69 outside cabins will be equipped with balconies, including the three
owner suites. The spacious wellness area will impress with three treatment rooms, a
Finnish sauna, a steam bath, and a hairdressing salon. The separate fitness area will be
located on the sundeck of the ship.

 

An intimate private-yacht atmosphere remains on the new tall ship
Small and fine: the new addition to the SEA CLOUD CRUISES fleet will provide a similar
private-yacht atmosphere on board, for which the other two sister ships are already best
known for. The experience of nature is at the center of every journey-roughly 4,000 m²
(43,056 ft²) of sails will billow under the sky, surrounded by wind and waves, bringing guests
on SEA CLOUD SPIRIT a tad closer to natural elements. SEA CLOUD CRUISES stands for
environment-friendly, gentle eco-tourism at the highest level. Since only eco-friendly
marine-diesel is being used on both existing tall-ships, a low consumption hybrid machine
(diesel-electric) will be used for SEA CLOUD SPIRIT. That’s because, the vessel still
wouldn´t work without engines, even if sailing is the main focus.
