M/S Waxholm III was delivered to Ångbåts AB Skärgården in Norrköping where she operates the route Norrköping – Gryt –Valdemarsvik. A couple of years later she is sold to Waxholms Nya Ångfartygs AB where she is rebuilt and starts to operate the route Stockholm – Blidösundet.

During the years 1940-1945 she was leased to Marinförvaltningen to transport for the military. She was stationed at Vaxholms fortress.

In 1992 Strömma bought Waxholm III and after two years of renovating she was relaunched in traffic in 1994. She is carefully preserved and in the dining rooms there is wallpaper from early 20th century.
