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.
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.
The original Germania, designed by Max Oertz, was built for Dr. Gustav Krupp, and 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, combined with modern comfort and conveniences. She is in Class and carries MCA LY2 designation.
GERMANIA NOVA was built as the same yard as the well-respected 55 metre Herreshoff schooner ELENA who has been racing ELEONORA (recreation of Westward), ADELA (fully restored 55-meter schooner) and METEOR (Huisman recreation) in recent regattas.
