At home, Mercy Ships is best known for his current hospital ship African Mercy, which is identical to the old railroad railway ferry Queen Ingrid, which has been converted to a hospital ship but still contains a number of memories.

The new hospital ship will be 174 meters long and signed by the Finnish company Delta Marine.

The ship will be delivered in July 2017.
