The ship was built 1906 on Bergsunds varv. She is one of the traditional archipelago vessels with a dining room and a ladies-lounge on top deck. After 25 yrs out of traffic she was bought 1984 by Strömma and has since that been renovated a couple of times. Here you find the true feeling of a turn of century vessel regardless if you are in one of the lounges or ouside on deck.

A floating jewel from the 1930's, built in Oskarshamns shipyard for the Royal general postal mail board of directors and named S/S Öland. During many years she was in traffic between Kalmar and Förjestaden, being built especially to break ice on the harsh winters. The old steamer was saved from the junk-yard and after restoration she was re-inaugurated in May 2000 by king Carl XVI Gustaf. The original steam machine still functions even though today she is operated with modern diesel machines.
The vessel is the last steam ship that the Swedish general postal mail board of directors had built. She was built to be placed in traffic through one of the counties toughest winter waters between Kalmar and Förjestaden on Öland. The amount of ice in this sound requires a vessel strong enough to break the thick ice.
1957 - 1966
Until the summer of 1957 the boat operated on the line Kalmar-Färjestaden by S/S Öland. After this the vessel was sold to Rederi AB Wasa-Umeå and before she was placed back in traffic between Sweden and Finland she was extended with 11 meters which, amongst others, made it possible to take up to 35 cars on the journey over the sound. At the same time the vessel was re-named to S/S Korsholm III. The traffic to Finland proceeded until the year 1966.
1967 - 1985
In 1967 the vessel was bought by the Finish state where she, after yet some re constructions, was made to join the Finish marina. Year 1975 the Finish shipping board of directors took over until the year of 1985.
1985 - 1989
1985 the ship was bought by a scrap merchant, probably for brake up and destruction of the vessel, but such was not the case. Since then many have had plans for what the usage of the ship might be, everything from café to floating office in Århus, Danmark.
1989 - 1996
Returned to Finish shipping company without running in traffic until 1996 when she was sold back to Sweden.
1998 - 2000
In the winter of 1998 the ship was bough by Strömma Kanalbolaget and that summer she caught peoples attention as she was docked in front of the harbour of Saltsjöqvarn in Stockholms port entrance as a wreck.The ambition was to renovate the vessel into the classical style. Since the vessel was in such a bad condition the decision could be made first after a solid consideration by a planning board. the calculus to restore the vessel landed between 30-35 million Swedish crowns and on Friday the 23 of October 1998 the ship left Stockholm for renovation.
In May year 2000 she returned to Stockholm again, totally unlike the vessel she was when she left, Stockholms largest floating party flat!
