Lovers of classic sailboats take delight. The spectacular sail yacht GERMANIA NOVA announces something. In specific, she plans to reposition in time for the Caribbean yacht charter winter season.
We first profiled yacht GERMANIA NOVA in June 2011. A replica of the Max Oertz-designed and Germaniawerft-built racing schooner Germania. A 1908 build, now 60 meter GERMANIA NOVA provides guests the same opportunity. Specifically, to experience the joys of sailing in a bygone era. She is currently available for year end rental. Her rates are
€80,000 per week for Christmas/New Year period and €70,000 per week off season
Presenting the brand new classic schooner sail yacht GERMANIA NOVA. As they say, “everything old is new again.” The 47 meter Italian-built yacht is the latest sail-powered superyacht.
The Germania NOVA (“new”) design makes this new yacht unusual and spectacular. She is a replica of a classic 1908 yacht named Germania. The original vessel had a storied history before sinking off the coast of Florida in a hurricane.
Her builder was Krupp-Germania-Wurft in Kiel, Germany. The company constructs submarines. More importantly, known as U-boats.
The original Germania sailed a 47 mile course around Britain’s Isle of Wight in record time in 1908.
In 1914, the yacht visited Southhampton, England where she was seized as a prize of war. She then changed hands several times.
Germania had two names. First, Exen. Second, Half Moon. Finally, The yacht as a floating restaurant and dance hall in Miami, Florida. She sank near Key Biscayne. In specific, a small island near Miami in 1930.
The schooner is the seventh Florida Underwater Archaeological Preserve. Dedication made in 2000. Germania is now part of the US National Register of Historic Places.
Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, proudly shares that her companies (1-800 Yacht Charters and Bareboat.com) donate floating mooring buoys for over the Germania (Half Moon) site.
“The unfortunately wreck created a reef, and yachtsmen and women regularly visit to snorkel and enjoy the underwater magic that the yacht created. We are so happy to provide a way for yachts to tie to protect the fragile reef below.”
Technological advances and comforts aboard the replica are awe-inspiring. For instance, the sailing yacht features satellite television. She has flat screen panel tvs in the main saloon, master stateroom, and all guest cabins. Cinema-quality 5.1 Dolby surround sound DVD service is available in the main saloon and master stateroom. Guest cabins have radios with CD and MP3 players. iPod connections are present throughout the yacht. She is a charter build with many features all amenities.
The classic GERMANIA NOVA is available in the western Mediterranean. With a crew of 13, her rate is €80,000 per week, plus expenses in July and August. Her rate drops to €70,000 per week, plus expenses, for low season dates. At the end of the season, the yacht will relocate to the Caribbean for the winter.

A well known owner of a Mediterranean yacht charter vessel charges nearly €100,000 per week. In specific, to rent his yacht. His day job brings him vast sums of money, however.
“Basically, if they’re going to pay me the stupid money right now, I’m going to take it,” he admits in the magazine article. “I have to. I mean, it’s not for me. Do you know what I mean? At this point, it’s for my kids. It’s ridiculous, yeah, yeah. But ultimately is it for me? No. No. It’s for the kids.”
Depp shot to the top of the list of Hollywood’s highest paid actors. This is thanks to the stellar success of Disney‘s Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise. Depp is mum on the size of his Pirates “ransom.” A recent report puts his total take in the $300 million range. This is due to a gross-profit-sharing deal brokered with Disney. To date, the four-film franchise has tallied $3.7 billion in worldwide receipts. Depp to star in a 5th installment.
It’s believed Depp’s passion for the sea, and his purchase of a mega yacht charter vessel stems from his years of filming the Pirates movies in exotic locales such as the Bahamas. His yacht, motor yacht VaJoLiRoJa — the boat’s clever name comes from combining the first few letters of each family member’s name, partner Vanessa Paradis, Johnny, and their kids, Lily-Rose and Jack — is a 156 foot yacht of distinctive character, inspired by the classic gentleman’s yachts of the 1930’s.
The lavishly-styled interior evokes the romance and glamour of a bygone era (with a few pirate-themed hints throughout).
Relive the Golden Era of yachting on board a classic yacht this winter. Depp’s yacht VAJOLIROJA is available for hire in the Bahamas or St Martin. It joins another classic-style Caribbean charter yacht, sail yacht GERMANIA NOVA.
In other destinations, classic-styled sail yacht MONTIGNE is available in the Far East, and in the Mediterranean, sail yacht ATLANTIC and motor yacht CHRISTINA O are available this winter.
