I spotted this yacht in Villefranche sur Mer June 18, 2008. This is the only photo I took. Originally as Haida it was built for the millionaire yeast producer Max C. Fleischmann (1877-1952) following plans drafted by the New York naval architects Cox and Stevens. After completion it was berthed at the Santa Barbara Yacht Club, California.
Formerly known as Rosenkavalier, the incredible Haida G was built in 1929 by German shipyard Krupp Germania Werft and re-fit in 2007 by Amico & Co.
At 71.1 metres, Haida G offers seven luxurious cabins decorated in a unique and elegant style. Her white and bright cottage-like design theme exists continuously throughout the motor yacht and offers a welcome respite from other superyachts reliance on muted neutrals and glossy wood.
Currently the yacht is named Dona Amelia.
According to Pendennis It got a 4 months refit in 2012 mainly an overhaul of all engines and some engineering. Amazingly it still is propelled by the two Krupp (currently MAN) diesel engines installed in 1929.
