“This price reduction demonstrates the owner’s serious intention to sell,” says Solomon, adding that this very special yacht now represents superb value. GERMANIA NOVA is currently en route from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean and is due to arrive in Palma, Mallorca around mid-April.
GERMANIA NOVA is a replica of the famous 1908 schooner GERMANIA using identical hull lines, the same sail and deck plans, and faithful replicas of the original deck houses, skylights and companionways.
The original GERMANIA, designed by Max Oertz, was built for Dr. Gustav Krupp. She won the 1908 Cowes Week and many other regattas except, for obvious reasons, when competing against Kaiser Wilhelm's Meteor. In 1912 she competed in 19 regattas winning 10 and coming second three times. Her racing career ended with the outbreak of the First World War and eventually she was sunk in a storm off Key Biscayne in 1930.
GERMANIA NOVA is an admirable achievement with all of the charm and nostalgia of the Edwardian Era, but the benefits of modern comfort and conveniences. She is also available for charter.
