The Sea Cloud Spirit is a three-masted full-rigged ship built as a cruise ship by the Hamburg shipping company Sea Cloud Cruises. The ship was ordered on March 22, 2007 from the SpanishVigo. The ship’s keel was laid on July 18, 2008. In the summer of 2010, the shipyard went bankrupt. The further construction of the ship was then initially set.

The ship was designed by engineer and naval architect Iñigo Echenique. Initially, Sea Cloud Husar was intended as the name for the ship. As ship construction resumed, this was changed to Sea Cloud Spirit. The ship was christened on September 7, 2021 in the port of Palma de Mallorca. Elena of Spain, the sister of King Felipe VI, was initially intended as godmother, but she declined. The ship’s maiden voyage began on September 14, 2021 in Civitavecchia.
