The luxury charter sailing yacht Aello was designed in 1919 and launched in Hamburg in 1921 by Max Oertz, probably the most famous German shipbuilder of his time.
Oertz built the famous imperial schooners Germania and Meteor IV for German Kaiser Wilhelm II. Meteor IV competed against King George's V legendary Britannia and was used as a political tool by the Kaiser. Indeed the Kaiser played an important part in the creation of prestigious yacht clubs and the launching of international regattas.
Aello was created as Meteor's IV sister vessel and is the only remaining large schooner of Max Oertz design in the world. Aello took part in many classic regattas including Monaco, Cannes, Porto Cervo, St. Tropez and won the Antigua Classic Regatta. 2004: Winner of Antigua Classic Regatta 2002: Winner of Antigua Classic Regatta 1997: Transatlantic Race sponsored by the NY Yacht Club and the Royal Yacht Squadron.
