Regatta Charter

Experience the adrenaline of a race onboard Mariska, racing like in the old times 
Mariska is a wooden gaff cutter, designed by William Fife and launched in 1908. She is one of the twenty “15 Meter” class yachts built to the International Rule between 1907 and 1919. She is the second to ever be built and the oldest of the four remaining, the other yachts being Tuiga ( owned by the prince of Monaco), Hispania and The Lady Anne. Mariska is one of the most famous classic yachts in existence and the only one to be available to charter for regattas.

Through her 116 years of history, Mariska has offered an outstanding perfomance. She can sail at a speed of up to 12 knots and has an amazing racing pedigree, since she has taken part in more than 300 regattas all over the world, sailed more miles than one can imagine and been on 200 podiums in her lifetime.
