| | Unknown Abeking & Rasmussen Yacht
I can say it was built in 1935 only because of in Canada what is called "Blue Book" and this contains all the particulars of a particular vessel and registers it and according to the blue book dated 1979 the official number is 392649 and under date of previous registry it says formally German built and documented vessel, being built in 1935 in Bremen, Germany. At the top of the certificate of registry it says "Authority granted by Transport Order No. 171, in 1964 dated August 17, 1964 to register this vessel without production of the Builder's Certificate - the Bill of Sale from Crown Assets Disposal Corporation being accepted as the foundation document." The person I bought the vessel from had the original Bill Of Sale with the ship name being "Tuna" and overall length being 40 feet 6 inches, which is longer than the 50 sq. meter and that at the time he had to pick a registry name as Tuna was the Royal Canadian Navy name and he picked Amsel as a personal choice. Would anyone know where the "Germania III" went? It was an eight meter R-Yacht built for Krupp V. Bohlen, Essen. The vessel I have was a prize of war, I suspect it may be this one.
I also have a set of plans or profiles for 50 sq. meter vessel built at the time by Abeking & Rasmussen and that it doesnt' seem to fit the vessel I have. Plans are fpr 50 sq meter Seefahrtkreuzer, Bau Nt. 2907
