Her owner and captain is Oliver Wipperfürth, born 1969 in Wuppertal, Germany.
MERCEDES was rebuilt from the trawler ATLANTIC-A FD 75 in Harlingen, The Netherlands, now registered Amsterdam.
Crew 17, guests on daysails 140, in port 150.
Classification: Z1234+ worldwide, 430 tons, 18 sails, hight of main mast 35m, max. speed 15kn, engine MWM V16 / 800 HP.

The pictures in her homepage lead to a fragment of her name, her fishing number and her old homeport:

When googling I just found the following sites:

MERCEDES is not a training vessel, she is only used for daysails at events, social functions, receptions etc.

That's all I could find on her.
