OWNER & GUESTS
Germania Nova sleeps 10 owners and guests in 5 staterooms aft and up to 13 crew forward. She is laid out in the typical way with the full beam owner's stateroom aft, 4 guest staterooms with double berths and en-suite bathrooms off a central corridor, the main saloon amidships, and galley, captain's cabin, officer's cabin, crew mess and crew accommodations forward. The sound proofed engine room and machinery spaces are beneath the accommodation deck with access for all service routines from the crew area.
Germania Nova's interior is bright and spacious with egg shell white painted deckheads, bulkheads, and most cabinetry, richly accented with varnished mahogany surfaces, furniture, and cabin soles. Door furniture and hardware, deckhead lights, fiddle rails, etc. are polished brass. All of which is in keeping with the Edwardian period of the yacht.
On deck, Germania Nova is completely traditional in appearance. However, appearances can be deceiving. Of her 21 bronze drum winches, 15 of them are hydraulically powered. What looks to be traditional galvanized turnbuckles, cleats and boom fittings, for instance, are bead blasted stainless steel. The gleaming varnished deck houses and skylights are teak veneered aluminium structures to save weight and ensure watertight integrity.
Since the original yacht did not have an engine, generators, watermakers, air conditioning, and all of the other systems that a modern yacht must have, weight saving was critical in Germania Nova to compensate. Much was achieved in the interior with foam cored panelling and joiner work, and more has been saved on deck. The wooden masts and booms are hollow and the gaffs are faux painted carbon fibre.
The galley is U-shaped and gives direct access to the main saloon. It is built to class with corian countertops, wood laminate flooring and has sufficient equipment.

7. SAILS AND RIGGING
The original crew of Germania would be completely familiar with the sail handling of Germania Nova if they were able to board today.
The bowspirit, masts and booms are made by Ventis/Netherlands from Oregon pine. The topmasts and jackyards are made from spruce, fine grain, rift cut. The gaffs are made from carbon fibre, surface painted like
wood. The original wooden ones are available for classic races. There is a spinacker boom made from spruce in storage ashore.
Germania Nova has eight working sails built by North sails from Dacron and fashioned in the classic style with leather reinforced corners to maintain the period look. All are raised and sheeted using hydraulic winches, while manual winches are used for lighter work such as running backstays. The 8 working sails are the main sail, main gaff topsail, main topmast staysail, fore sail, fore top-sail, fore stay-sail, jib, jib, and jib top. In addition there are a cruising main, trysail, storm staysail (bright orange colour), spinnacker, and jackyard.

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 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 provides guests the opportunity to experience a gentle, relaxing sail or by contrast; an exhilarating experience at sea. Including bowsprit, Germania is an impressive 60m in overall length, and carries 1,200m2 of sail area.
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.It will be a fine day to see Germania Nova on the race course with these yachts.
Germania Nova is offered for sale and the rare opportunity exists to join a very exclusive fraternity.
The name GERMANIA NOVA is reserved.
Owner’s personal effects and all items not specifically shown on this listing sheet shall be excluded from the sale.
