Price Upon Request

 

In total 20 of these magnificent 15m Class were built between 1907 and 1917 at which time they were the cutting edge race yachts of the day and highly favoured by the aristocracy. MARISKA was built for A K Stothert, one of the most acclaimed sailors at the time.

Bought by her current owner in 2007, MARISKA was in need of a great deal of work and so began her incredibly comprehensive restoration that lasted two and half years totalling 25,000 man-hours. During this time, the yacht was completely stripped back to bare frames and restored from the keel up. She re-launched in September 2009 and was once again racing later that month when she secured two impressive second place finishes in the Coupe d’Automne YCF and Les Voiles de St. Tropez. Since then she has continued to build a spectacular palmares that notably includes winning the 15 Class Annual Trophy in 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2016. Having won the Giraglia, Puerto Sherry, San Remo and St Tropez during 2016 (The Grand Slam) this was a season that perfectly demonstrates the astonishing capability of this superb yacht and crew.

The sale of MARISKA represents an incredibly rare opportunity to own a beautifully restored and superbly documented piece of history. Not only is she one of the most stunning yachts afloat, but also one of the most successful in terms of racing. To own MARISKA is to be guardian to one of our most significant and precious pieces of maritime history. The joy and pride that come with that responsibility will be difficult to measure.

MARISKA is offered fully prepared for the 2017 season ready to race or to cruise, as is your preference. If racing is your choice then the expert crew who have so successfully sailed her since 2009 are prepared and the season’s logistics have already been meticulously planned.

The history of this remarkable yacht and her restoration are superbly documented so please do get in contact to receive that information.

Restoration

Mariska’s incredibly comprehensive restoration ran from 2007 to 2009 and totaled 25,000 man hours. It was decided to stick to the 15m Class regulations and as closely as possible to the original design of William Fife III. A significant point is that this project was intentionally a restoration and NOT a reconstruction.
