Classification society DNV GL has signed a classification contract for the passenger sailing ship Sea Cloud Spirit, being built by Metalships & Docks in Vigo, Spain.
Ordered by the Hamburg-based operator Sea Cloud Cruises, the vessel is designed to meet the increasing demand from both independent travellers and the charter market, mainly in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.
“Sea Cloud Spirit will become the third addition to our fleet of luxury sailing vessels. It will offer a unique combination of luxury accommodation, technologically advanced amenities and traditional sailing, and we look forward to welcoming our first guests on board in 2020,” Daniel Schäfer, Managing Director of Sea Cloud Cruises GmbH, said.
Featuring a length of 138 meters, Sea Cloud Spirit is a full three-masted sailing ship, able to carry up to 136 passengers on luxury cruises, with 85 crew members on board. Sea Cloud Spirit is scheduled to set sail in the summer of 2020.
