As the workers of the Krupp Germaniawerft laid the keel of a new steel motor yacht one hazy morning in late 1927, no one could have foreseen what a unique and eventful history this new-born ship would experience. Less still might they have imagined that this beautiful yacht, following several transformations and a recent loving and painstaking restoration, would still be gliding through the seas some eighty years later.
DONA AMÉLIA, originally HAIDA, was built for millionaire yeast producer Max C. Fleischmann (1877 – 1952) following plans drafted by the New York naval architects Cox & Stevens. The ship was constructed to be especially strong so that it might serve for long scientific, fishing, and pleasure cruises in the Pacific waters off the Californian coast. Using the latest technological developments, the vessel was equipped with the twin diesel engines that still propel her to this day. Her fuel capacity of 150 tons allowed a range of nearly 8000 nautical miles – enabling her to travel from San Francisco to Singapore non-stop.
The ship was completed in 1929, and following a passage from Germany via New York and through the Panama Canal, her owner berthed HAIDA at the Santa Barbara Yacht Club, California.
As with many of his yachts before and after, Max C. Fleischmann named his ship after the native tribe of Queen Charlotte Island whose seafaring skills he admired so much. Fleischmann, who had a reputation of being slightly eccentric, had the beautiful ship painted black.
After more than ten joyous years at sea, HAIDA found a new mission when Mr. Fleischmann sold the yacht to the US Navy in October 1940. The ship was completely refurbished and began new duty as a naval vessel: the bowsprit was removed, radar was installed, and a 3.5’’ gun was mounted on the fo’c’sle. Warran A. Cabral, who served on board the ship, recently said he could still remember how the exquisite wood panelling was roughly covered with grey paint. Under the name USS ARGUS, identification number ‘PY14’, the yacht protected the coast in the Patrol Force of the 12th Naval District out of San Francisco. She was briefly lent to the United States Geodetic Survey, returning to the Navy after eight months. On October 29th, 1944 the ARGUS rescued the shipwrecked sailors from the Liberty vessel JOHN A. JOHNSON, sunk in the Pacific by a submarine.
ARGUS was decommissioned in 1946 and purchased by a private owner who restored her to her former glory as a pleasure craft. Renamed SARINA, she was owned by the Egyptian cotton magnate Maurice Ada and spent a number of years in Alexandria. During a political disturbance, her owner moved the yacht to the South of France.
A happy new era began when, after a year in the hands of American industrialist Larry Green, she came into the ownership of British Member of Parliament, Loel Guinness in 1969. He kept SARINA for more than ten years and spared no expense to see that the yacht remained in excellent shape. In 1979 Guinness’ health forced him to sell the beautiful vessel to film producer Robert Stigwood. Stigwood redecorated the interior in an English country house style.
Also around this time a false second funnel was mounted that characterized SARINA’s appearance for many years. The yacht was the centre of Stigwood’s social life, undertaking long voyages throughout Europe and the Caribbean.
In 1981 SARINA was sold yet again. Her new Greek owner renamed her ROSENKAVALIER, after the opera by Richard Strauss. In 1988 ROSENKAVALIER, like many other classic yachts at that time, was acquired by a Japanese owner. She made the journey to Yokusaka on her own keel, still driven by her original 1929 diesel engines. The ship remained in the Isaka family of Yokohama until 1992, when a Greek yachtsman bought ROSENKAVALIER.
In 1999, a yacht lover acquired the vessel to become her new Owner. He was well aware of her heritage and condition, since he and the ship had crossed paths numerous times before. It seemed like nothing less than fate.
To reconnect the ship with her origins, he re-christened her HAIDA G.
The renovation of the ship began with a refit of the original main engines. They were completely disassembled and overhauled. The interior was entirely stripped and reusable parts carefully reinstalled. The naked hull was sandblasted, and 120 tons of steel replaced. Except for the lovingly restored main engines, the heart of the vessel, all aggregates were replaced and the ship was updated to the highest technical and safety specifications.
Today HAIDA G provides all the comfort of a modern luxury yacht for all her passengers. Overhauled to MCA-standards and run under ISM management she is available to a distinguished circle of charter guests with her incomparable aura, intriguing history, and unique charm.
HAIDA G was purchased by her current owner who re-christened her DONA AMÉLIA, did a refit period at Pendennis in 2011-2012 and used her privately since.
From September 2011 to January 2012 Dona Amélia did a refit period at Pendennins shipyard where a lot of work was done. The bridge front area was painted and touch ups was done on the hull.
The main engine fuel pumps and injectors were refurbished. Auxiliary oil and water pumps were installed on the main engines.
New engine start compressors with air dryers were also installed.
The generators had a main overall and service and new fuel purifiers were installed.
The davits and foredeck crane was serviced. The windlass was totally refurbished. All navigation equipment also had a service.
New ships computers were installed as well as the Sonos music system.
The laundry was refurbished and new washers and dryers installed.
The galley was also refurbished with some new equipment.
December 2012 – January 2013 Dona Amelia did a short maintenance period at the Navantia shipyard in Cartagena, Spain. The hull was painted as well as the antifoul was redone. The main engines had a good service and a new fuel oil purifier was installed. A new V-Sat dome was also installed. Grey and black water tanks were cleaned and the centre fresh water tank was cleaned and painted.
