The 59.80m luxury sailing yacht GERMANIA NOVA, built in 2011 is a stunning replica of the Dr. Max Oertz designed and Krupp built racing schooner, Germania, from 1908.
She was designed using identical hull lines as well as the same sail and deck plans. An admirable achievement, GERMANIA NOVA has all of the charm and nostalgia of the Edwardian Era, combined with modern comfort and the high-performance standards of the original GERMANIA.
She carries 12 crew and can accommodate up to 10 guests in one master cabin and four nearly identical guest cabins.
Very spacious and comfortable for up to 10 guests in 5 double bed cabins all with unsuited bathrooms.
The very spacious and luminous full beam salon has a large dining table which converts into a bar.
Opposite is a gimballed table for comfortable eating, even when heeling at an angle of 20 degrees. Leather
upholstery, draft beer and an ice‐cube maker add to the comfort provided on board.
The ship has a wine cellar with a capacity of more than 300 bottles.
GERMANIA NOVA has one large owner’s cabin aft with a king size double bed, walk‐in wardrobe, two sofas, TV, iPod
connection, writing desk and a sizable bathroom with shower and separate toilet.
The ship has four nearly identical guest cabins, each equipped with a double bed (French‐sized), wardrobe, writing
desk, iPod connection and a small but attractive bathroom with shower, washbasin and toilet. All cabins have individual
air conditioning systems, well‐equipped bookshelves and make‐up mirrors.
