ABOUT MARISKA

Designed and built by the world famous William Fife &Son, MARISKA is one of only four of the famous 15m Class that remains.

In total 20 of these magnificent 15m Class were built between 1908 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 and 25,000
man-hours. During this time, the yacht was completely stripped back to bare frames and
rebuilt from the keel up. She re-launched on September 11th, 2009 and won her first regatta
less than a month later in St. Tropez. Since then, her victorious ways have continued and
notably include 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.

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 places 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.

RESTORATION

Mariska's incredibly comprehensive restoration ran from 2007 to 2009 and totalled 25000 man hours. It was decided to stick to the 15m Class regulations and as closely as possible to the original design of William Fife. A significant point is that this project was intentionally a restoration and NOT a reconstruction.

A detailed account of the restoration is available.
