    When 'Sea Cloud' was launched in 1931, she was unique. Built by cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post and her husband, financier E. F. Hutton, 'Sea Cloud' was the biggest and most beautiful sailing yacht ever commissioned by a private person, a magnet for royalty, heads of state and movie stars. Even today, there is still no ship that rivals 'Sea Cloud' for her unique elegance, comfort and old-fashioned graciousness.

    My father was raised in Panama and was an ordinary seaman on the yacht Hussar when she sailed into New York on her maiden voyage.
