The History of M/S Waxholm III

M/S Waxholm III was built in 1903 at Bergsund's Mekaniska Verkstad. She was delivered to Ångbåts AB Skärgården in Norrköping, where she operated on the route Norrköping-Gryt-Valdemarsvik. A few years later, she was sold to Waxholms Nya Ångfartygs AB, where she was rebuilt and instead operated the route Stockholm-Blidösundet.

During the years 1940-1945, she was leased to the Navy Administration for military transport and was then stationed at Vaxholm Fortress. In 1992 she was bought by Strömma Kanalbolaget and after two years of a gentle, total renovation, she was back in service in 1994.
