The new 136-passenger Sea Cloud Spirit has reached a further building milestone. Polish shipbuilding organization Choren has erected the sailing vessel’s 177-foot-tall aft mast for the duration of shipyard building in Vigo, Spain.

“With this we have taken an important move in the direction of the completion of the Sea Cloud Spirit,” says Daniel Schafer, taking care of director of the Hamburg shipping and delivery organization Sea Cloud Cruises. The 453-foot-lengthy, 3-mast, completely rigged ship will established sail later on this 12 months.

One by a single, the ship’s 3 masts, presently completely outfitted with shrouds and stays, are now staying erected. Later they’re going to have/help a whole sail spot of about forty four,132 square toes of canvas.

Rigging was intended by the office environment of the Polish yacht designer Zygmunt Choren, one of few experts in the artwork of windjammer building. He has intended the world’s swiftest and most sophisticated tall ships including the German 3-mast barque Alexander von Humboldt, the Polish whole-rigged ship Dar Mlodziezy and her Russian sister Mir.

Elevating the aft mast is an important prerequisite for the completion of the Sea Cloud Spirit. The mizzenmast not only carries the sails, but also incorporates the exhaust procedure for the vessel’s motor.

“As quickly as the shrouds and stays are connected and the mast is aligned, we can start screening the motor,” clarifies Schäfer. At the very same time the shipyard is performing on the interior fittings of the massive sailing vessel.

The Sea Cloud Spirit is Sea Cloud Cruises’ third ship. The initial flagship, Sea Cloud, was crafted in 1931 Luxurious Journey Advisor sailed on this ship earlier this 12 months. Sea Cloud II entered support in 2001.
