Luxury yacht SEA CLOUD is a well crafted yacht that is able to sleep up to 6 people on board and has approximately 65 crew members.

As the largest sailing yacht ever built at that time, the four-masted barque was commissioned by E. F. Hutton, one of Wall Street’s wealthiest businessmen. His wife, Marjorie Merriweather Post, who was heiress to a huge fortune and herself a successful businesswoman designed the luxury yacht – which was then called HUSSAN and had a black hull. When the couple divorced in 1935, Marjorie kept the yacht renamed it Sea Cloud. It was then used by the US army during WWII and used as a weather station. She was then restored and sold on to Dominican dictator Rafael Trujillo in 1955 who renamed it Angelita. After Trujillo was assassinated in 1961 she was renamed Patria. Five years later the PATRIA returned to American hands and was renamed Antama. She was restored again in 1979 and renamed Sea Cloud by a German owner and offered for charter cruises. One interesting feature of the current yacht is a white plaque with five brass stripes, mounted on the front of the wheelhouse under the bridge. Each stripe stands for a half year of active military service for the USA.
