Bernhard Zand wrote in Der Spiegel September 10, 2012: "One country that could give China good advice, a country whose historians are well versed in naval policies and in arms races on the high seas, is Germany. A century ago, Berlin stood where Beijing is now, as an emerging economic power that was admired, envied and feared. At the time, Germany wanted a navy that would broadcast its self-confidence to the world, one that could rival the worlds greatest naval force of the era, the British Navy. That plan almost succeeded. But it didnt end well."

Clearly there are a lot of loose ends here, but this is vastly enhanced relative to earlier in the Century.
