Overview

GERMANIA NOVA is a replica of the schooner ‘Germania’ launched in 1908. She was built at Factoria Naval de Marin, located in Pontevedra, Galicia, Spain. As opposed to Germania, which did not include a motor or generators or air conditioning, GERMANIA NOVA has been outfitted with these important features for a charter yacht of her kind. In fact GERMANIA NOVA has full charter class under LY2. External decks, and sail plan are impressive.

Under deck she is composed of two main zones (guests and crew). Crew area is all located forward, and houses 10 crew in bunk areas, and two cabins for officers and captain, a crew mess, a laundry and a galley.

Guest area is composed of 5 cabins, including a master cabin and 4 guest cabins. All cabins with ensuite bathroom. One large saloon completes guest area. A bridge area finishes off the guest area, including all necessary radio and navigation equipment.

SAILING

Sailing a large racing schooner is an outstanding experience – GERMANIA NOVA has 1,300 m² to 2,383 m² of sails, set on wooden masts and spars and operated with the help of 16 hydraulic winches.

With a moderate breeze the ship is very comfortable and easy to sail, with more wind the ship heels and  starts roaring down the race track. Guests may participate in the action.

Highly polished bronze, silver-grey teak, gleaming varnished teak and mahogany, satin-like stainless steel fittings: pure luxury and a true classic racing schooner. GERMANIA NOVA has all modern facilities on board, the latest equipment, and in case of windless periods, a nearly noiseless main engine.

The ship is equipped with all modern means of navigation, double ECDIS, two radars and latest communication systems for your safety and comfort.

Sailing one of the largest racing schooners ever built is an outstanding experience. You cannot compare it with sailing a modern boat – it is direct, powerful and elegant.


HISTORY

The new GERMANIA, named GERMANIA NOVA, was designed using identical hull lines as the original as well as the same sail and deck-plan. The skylights, companionways and deckhouse are true replicas of the original. Extensive research was undertaken in order to achieve this. A main engine and generators were added, modern navigational and communications equipment was installed with the extra weight involved being compensated with hollow masts and a hull made of high-tensile steel. The interior was constructed using lightweight materials which nevertheless convey a traditional appearance. Just take a look at the historic photographs displayed throughout the ship and compare them with today’s ship

GERMANIA NOVA combines modern comfort with the high-performance standards of the original GERMANIA. She is back ... and she will rule the waves again!

Yachting sport came to Germany at the beginning of the 20th century.

The German Kaiser, Wilhelm II, led the way with his METEOR III which he purchased in England. The German businessman and industrialist, Dr. Gustav Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach, saw the advantage of sailing as a social arena to promote his fast-growing steel business. He asked the well-known Hamburg designer Max Oertz to produce the largest and fastest sailing ship seen to date in Germany.

The ship was built in 1908 by the Germania Shipyard in Kiel within only 7 months, from high-tensile steel, riveted to the frames. There was no electric lighting and no main engine. The owner’s area was very comfortable with a boudoir including a piano, a living room with an open fireplace and a dining room for 10 guests. There were two guest cabins and a comfortable owner’s cabin.

The large schooner was a world-class racer and won Cowes Week in 1908, setting a new course record. GERMANIA won almost all the races in which she participated except, for obvious reasons, when she was competing against the Kaiser’s METEOR IV …

GERMANIA was fast and could reach speeds of up to 19 knots. For regattas the crew was increased to 32. In 1912 she participated in 19 regattas, winning 10 and coming second three times. When war broke out in  1914, she was seized as a prize of war and later sold to Norwegian banker C. Hannevig.

She crossed the Atlantic and was renamed EXEN, subsequently sold again several times before – under the name HALF MOON – succumbing to a storm and sinking off Key Biscayne in 1930, becoming Florida’s Seventh State Underwater Archaeological Preserve.
