Deck plans

The ship originally called S/S Valkyrian (sister ship to the M/S Angantyr) was built to be used as a tender boat in Lake Mälaren and the inner archipelago. During the 1950s, she ran freight during the winters, she also trafficked the line to Möja for a time.

In 1968 she was sold to Strömma and renamed Nya Strömma Kanal, when the idea was that she would use this canal. These plans were not so good when she was just too deep for the Strömma Kanal. It was then discovered that the classic line between Stockholm and Drottningholm was unutilized. The ship was then renamed again and got the name S/S Drottningholm and in 1969 she began to operate on the line to Drottningholm. Her godmother is Princess Christina.

S/S Drottningholm still operates the route from the City Hall to Drottningholm.


1909 in Motala Mekaniska Verkstad
