Mariska, constructed by William Fife & Sons in 1908, is a magnificent luxury sailing yacht, her length an impressive 77 feet. With an interior design by Fife, Ines Knoll Design, and an exterior design by William Fife Jr., this remarkable vessel offers accommodations for up to 6 guests across 3 cabins.


Mariska’s illustrious racing career in the 15m Class spanned from 1908 to 1939, cementing her status as one of the most renowned classic yachts to date. Throughout her years on the water, she garnered numerous accolades and was graced with exceptional owners, including Olle Grafstrom, a renowned jazz musician and visual artist who resided aboard for an extended period. In 1942, Mariska became the possession of the Royal Swedish Yacht Club, benefitting from the protection offered by their neutrality during the war. She remained in Sweden for 73 years.


Following her relocation to France, Mariska underwent an extensive restoration that spanned a decade. She then found her way to Slovenia, where dedicated maintenance efforts tirelessly preserved her in impeccable racing condition since 2020. Today, Mariska has returned to the racing circuit, showcasing her enduring splendor, and is available for charter, providing a unique opportunity to experience her timeless elegance and wonderful design.
