M/S Wilhelm Tham

Our second oldest ship

Not available

M/S Wilhelm Tham is built at the Motala shipyard and launched in 1912, which makes it our second oldest ship. She has three decks and 25 cabins. The dining room and lounge are located on shelter deck. From the bridge deck you can enjoy the view from the covered aft deck. In 2001 the dining room on M/S Wilhelm Tham was renovated and extended. 2003-2004 all cabins got renovated and also the dining room and lounge were redecorated.

Grade II listed

Both the interior and the atmosphere on board reflect the age when the ship was built. In 2004 M/S Wilhelm Tham was listed, meaning that the National Maritime Museums in Sweden consider her historically important. This is an acknowledgment we are proud of, since it gives us a proof that out effort to preserve the ship has succeeded.

Beautifully decorated quarters

The cabins are in size comparable to a smaller sleeping compartment on a train, but give the guest an impression of how people once travelled. They are small and cozy and tastefully decorated with beautiful fabrics and brass details. There are shared toilet and shower facilities on each deck.
