Merceditas was built in 1966 at Cantieri Benetti in Italy for Prince Renier of Monaco. She was originally named ‘Carostefal’ after the Princes three children Caroline, Stephanie and Albert. After having several owners she was bought in 1999 by Patrik Engdahl and Karen Brown. Since her new ownership Merceditas has been rebuilt into a classic beauty with a new teak interior, polished oak floors, chromed fittings and the modern comforts of today.
Merceditas cruises in Scandinavian waters including the more than 30,000 islands of the beautiful Stockholm archipelago. Here you can enjoy the varied nature, the flat rocks of the outer archipelago and the long twilight nights of the summer.
The spacious master cabin, fully panelled in teak, with en suite shower/wc, serves as a double or a twin but can also be converted into a saloon when the vessel is used for corporate charter. When Merceditas was rebuilt during 1999-2001 the galley was moved below deck to give room for a large settee where the guests can join the captain during
navigating and manoeuvering. Located aft is one twin and one double guest cabin, also panelled in teak. Both cabins have en suite shower room/wc with teak furnishing and Italian mosaic. The cosy aft deck can be completely enclosed, where the vessels climate control system keeps a perfect temperature no matter the outside weather conditions.
During 1999-2001 she was completely restored at Djurgårdsvarvet in Stockholm with a new teak interior and all technical systems renewed. A new teak deck and outside furniture was added in the winter 2002. Merceditas is now a true classic in excellent condition, ready for new adventures in Scandinavian waters.
