Advertiser's comments

The name GERMANIA stands out among the most famous of German sailing yachts – part of the fame deriving from the importance of their owners; the Krupp family. GERMANIA V is a wonderful bye product of her era – a yawl designed for ocean racing but with ample accommodation for cruising. This yacht remains incredibly original but is in fine condition as a result of few owners and a careful maintenance regime. GERMANIA V is a pearl and highly recommended whether you want to classic race or quietly cruise as her current owners have done.

History

The first of this name; GERMANIA I, commissioned by the Krupp steel dynasty and crafted by Max Oertz was manufactured at Friedrich Krupp Germaniawerft. This 47 metre schooner raced successfully in the Solent against Edward the Prince of Wales’s BRITANNIA of and Kaiser Wilhelm’s METEOR
In 1955 the passionate and experienced sailor Alfred Krupp commissioned Abeking & Rassmussen to build GERMANIA V in steel as a 13 KR Yawl - a fast ocean going racing yacht with plenty of luxury also for cruising. Her racing career started in 1956 with "Kiel week", the Round Skagen and numerous regattas in the Baltic and North seas.
In 1960 she took part in the New York - Bermuda race followed by the Transatlantic Bermuda - Skagen Race finishing third after ONDINE and BARLOVENTO and afront of ESCAPADE and DRUMBEAT. The following year she joined the Buenos Aires - Rio de Janeiro race.
In 1963 Krupp commissioned the first ever aluminium manufactured racing yacht - again at Abeking & Rasmussen and donated GERMANIA V to the DHH (German High Sea Sailing Association). As a training yacht she participated with some success in numerous regattas.
Her next proprietor Mr Talbot sailed her as a private yacht for six years in the Med, Caribbean and in United States waters giving her also a major refit before he commissioned a hundred foot schooner.
Since 1991 the current proprietor has sailed GERMANIA V as a private yacht in the Baltic, North Sea, Caribbean and the Med. Since then she has been regularly retailored and updated.
