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. Unlike the origina   Germania, which did not include a motor or generators or air conditioning, GERMANIA NOVA has been outfitted with these important features for a private and charter yacht of this class. In fact, GERMANIA NOVA has full charter class under LY2.

External decks, and sail plan are impressive.

GERMANIA NOVA has a sailing surface of 1300 sqm upwind and 2383 sqm downwind 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.

The German businessman and industrialist, Dr. Gustav Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach, saw the advantage of sailing to promote his fast-growing steel business. He asked the well-known Hamburg designer Max Oertz to design the largest and fastest sailing yacht 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 the 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 very fast and could reach speeds of up to 19 knots. The racing crew was of 32 crewmembers ! In 1912 she participated to 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 succumbing to a storm and sinking off Key Biscayne in 1930 under the name HALF MOON becoming Florida’s Seventh State Underwater Archaeological Preserve.
