Charter form

    (*) = Mandatory information.

    The steamer Bohuslän is one of the west coast's oldest and most beautiful ships, built at Eriksberg's Mekaniska Verkstad as the flagship of Marstrands Nya Ångfartygs AB (Marstrandsbolaget), with a delivery date of May 14, 1914. For over 40 years, she went back and forth six days a week between Gothenburg and Kungshamn (then Gravarne) regardless of the weather. On the way, she called at a large number of piers, such as Smögen, Lysekil, Marstrand and many more.

    After all these years along the coast, however, Bohuslän's steam-powered machine began to become inefficient and she found it increasingly difficult to compete with the increasing number of cars, buses and bridges. Then she was deployed on "purchase traffic" in Öresund and later also between Strömstad and Norwegian ports. After a while, however, this was not profitable either, and in the fall of 1963 she was laid up to be sold for scrapping two years later. A young group of people then saw the steamer and asked the scrap dealer if it was possible to buy her. SEK 60,000 was the price that the then newly formed Sällskapet Ångbåten managed to scrape together by selling 600 shares of SEK 100 each. Since then, the ship has been operated by a non-profit working crew with both regular, open tours and charter tours every summer. The steamer is today K-marked and classified as a traditional vessel.
