5-YEAR SURVEY COMPLETED JUNE 2016
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, and won the1908 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 in1930.
Germania Nova is an admirable achievement, with all of the charm and nostalgia of the Edwardian Era, combined with modern comfort and conveniences.
She is in Class and carries MCA LY2 designation.
