A Finnish-born American entrepreneur builds his dream ship, the first modern sailing cruise ship, with a team of shipping business men, naval architects, and engineers, wise shipbuilders, a temperamental designer and an essential woman. Thirty years later, the ship and her sisters are still in service on the world’s oceans.
