The yacht was designed by Artur Tiller, who was, along with Fife and Mylne, one of the well-known naval architects in the thirties, as an ocean going schooner
for an important German Industrial.She was built on the very famous yard of Abeking & Rasmussen in Lengwerder ( Bremen), in northern Germany, to the
highest standards: (100 A1 Germanischer Lloyd)
She was however confiscated by the Nazi’s , as the war started the yacht was making a trip on the North Sea and was stopped and brought to England by the
British Navy. She was dismasted and brought to the Thames with balloons hanging on her to help to defend England a little bit more. After the war she was
bought by an English Commander, who had her re rigged, with the original masts, as a ketch, by the naval architect Illingworth. He took her to the
Mediterranean and cruised extensively. After a few years she was sold to an Italian gentleman, who had an important refit made by the well-known yard of
Becconcini in Genoa.
She was sold to a Belgian gentleman and was renamed "Briantais", but the yacht remained in the Mediterranean. He sold the yacht to a Frenchman , who
renamed her Adria II, because the name was taken after the Belgian sale. For 15 years the yacht was in St.Raphael, French Riviera, She was sold again to a
French company and she had a paid captain aboard for more than 5 years, she participated in all the classic regatta’s at the Cote d’Azur, with very honorable
places. The company stopped their sailing adventures and the Adria was on the market again.
The new owner fell in love with her and is eternal honeymoon began, as the 7th owner of this sophisticated Lady of the Sea. A very important refit started and
she is now reborn, but by keeping everything that is original. She is a magnificent sailing yacht very seaworthy and fast, so ….
