Design 1724 - Germania VI


This big beautiful yawl was built of aluminum by Abeking & Rasmussen of Germany. She was launched in 1963. The boat was built to extremely high quality standards and was Lloyd's approved (100 A-1 rating). She was designed to rate well under the C.C.A., R.O.R.C. and German KR Class 16 Rules.

There are sleeping accommodations for nine in the owner's party and four paid hands.

Germania VI was an early recipient of an aluminum main mast, built by the Bath Iron Works of Maine. The rest of her spars were of spruce.


Here are the plans.

LWL 51'-11"
Beam 15'-7"
