A yacht built for Prince Rainier and Princess Grace is on the market with an asking price of 1.5 million euros. Stalca is a 24-metre traditional-style yacht, a classic boat with lots of teak and brass as well as the history that goes with it.
Visch Holland built the Stalca in 1971, and the name reflects the first two letters of the couple’s three children. Stalca has a full displacement steel hull with a 19-foot, 5-inch beam, an aluminium superstructure, and a teak deck. The yacht has a cruising range of 1,136 nautical miles, thanks to two 300-horsepower Caterpillar D336TA turbocharged and after-cooled V8 engines. Her maximum speed is 12 knots and cruising speed a stately nine knots.
She boasts a full-beam master stateroom and a full-beam VIP stateroom, both en-suite, and two additional twin staterooms with a shared bathroom. Stalca accommodates eight guests.
The yacht’s engines and generators were replaced in 2009, and Boat International has described the latest renovation as an almost full rebuild. The yacht brokerage company Bluewater is selling the yacht, which is suited for both personal use and charter.
