Before Strömma Kanalbolaget took over, she lay for years at the dock and
was infested with moisture and mold. The old mail steamer has been recreated to
how a coastal cruiser looked like in the past, with lounges, bars, libraries,
smoking rooms, ladies salon and sundeck. The decor is art deco inspired from
the 1930s, when the steamship was built. The steamship is designed to held
larger private parties for trips in the Stockholm archipelago. On board there
is room for more than 300 seated restaurant guests.

Steamship Stockholm did look better in the old days
In the fifties, when the steamship Stockholm's name still was
Postångaren Öland, I participated in a repair
aboard. She had run aground outside the city of Borgholm and some plates had to
be replaced. A great number of pipes under the flooring in the engine room had
to be dismounted before the work with the hull could start.
She had a very nice engine room. All the brass was highly polished and all
pipes were painted in accordance with the old color code; red for steam, yellow
for condensate, blue for fresh water, green for sea water, brown for
lubricating oil, black for fuel oil and so on.
The Steamship Stockholm is Nowadays propelled by diesel
