This is one of the most famous large racing cutters from the "golden era" of yachting. Designed in 1886 by George Lennox Watson for an owner syndicate from the Clyde, the ship was later sold to Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany. It became famous as the imperial yacht "Meteor". But even under its first owners, it was highly successful; she finished second or won in 13 of 15 races in her first season. In 1887 she sailed across the Atlantic to sail against "volunteers" for the America's Cup, but she lost both cup races. In 1891 she was sold to Wilhelm Zwo, who sailed mainly in Cowes against his uncle, the Prince of Wales, and his "Britannia". In 1895 she was handed over to the Navy and scrapped in 1921. Here is a unique opportunity to rebuild such a historically significant and at the same time successful yacht.
