The History of M/S S:t Erik
In 1881, M/S S:t Erik was built at Lindholmen's Mekaniska verkstad. The customer for this ship was Marstrands Nya Ångfartygs AB and they paid, for that time, the staggering sum of SEK 103,000. The name S:t Erik came from S:t Eriksparken on Marstrand, a popular park among bathers of the time. St. Erik's original route was Gothenburg, Marstrand, Stenungssund and Nösund.
S:t Erik ended up in Stockholm in 1965 and from the 1970s the ship was a popular restaurant and charter boat. Since 1995, M/S S:t Erik has been part of Strömma Turism & Sjöfart AB's fleet and since then she has been on the west coast and in Gothenburg again.
Did you know that M/S S:t Erik has shuttled both Saudi Arabian royalty and Brigitte Bardot in the Stockholm archipelago? However, none of the trips ended as planned. Brigitte Bardot had a gallstone attack, which meant that the ship had to rush the journey home, and for the Saudi Arabian royals, the weather was so bad that they asked to be disembarked earlier.
