Sea Cloud is a sailing cruise ship of the Sea Cloud
Cruises line. Initially built as a private yacht, it subsequently served as a weather ship for the United States Coast Guard and United States Navy during World War II. The ship served as the first racially integrated warship in the United States Armed Forces since the American Civil War.[1] Following the war, Sea Cloud was returned to private ownership, serving as a yacht for numerous people, including as presidential yacht of the Dominican Republic. The ship currently sails in Europe and the Caribbean as part of a fleet of sail cruise ships operated by Sea Cloud Cruises GmbH of Hamburg, Germany, often under contract to the National Geographic Society.
Sea Cloud was built in Kiel, Germany, as a barque for Marjorie Merriweather Post and her second husband Edward F. Hutton of Wall Street fame E. F. Hutton & Co..[2][3] She was launched in 1931 as Hussar V; at the time of her construction, she was the largest private yacht in the world.[4] In 1935, the United States Ambassador to the Soviet Union, Joseph E. Davies, married Marjorie Merriweather Post.[4] Mr. and Mrs. Davies renamed the ship Sea Cloud.[2] Although Mrs. Davies owned the ship, she allowed Mr. Davies to claim ownership of the vessel.
