Sea Cloud was built in 1931 by Wall Street businessman E. F. Hutton for his wife, Marjorie Merriweather Post. There is no ship afloat that can compare for grace, fine service and the sheer joy of sailing. Sails are raised by hand by a spirited crew. She carries 30 sails measuring a total of 32,000 square feet. Although the ship is enormously elegant, she is also friendly and informal, making for a relaxed time. Dress aboard ship is also relaxed and casual.
