M/S Stockholm was built in 1953 for the Swedish maritime administration as a working vessel in the Baltic Sea and thus she was originally constructed for
heavy ice conditions. In May 1997 she was bought by ship owner Ishavet Inc. and was refitted for passenger traffic in the Arctic.
Despite her charming nostalgically appearance M/S Stockholm is equipped with the latest in navigation and safety.
On the bridge, where everyone is welcome, you can see GPS-equipped computers next to the original compass in shining brass and out on deck
you see the old wooden lifeboat (now retired) side by side with the latest model of life rafts.
