De tre skärgårdsbåtarna



We usually call this boat the pearl of our shipping company. She has transported royalty and celebrities at weddings and festivities and she is a faithful servant who carries the international maritime signal flags with pride. Gustafsberg II was built at Gothenburg Mechanical Werkstad during the Union period, 1898, and may therefore have a Union flag in the stern.

100 years later, she was renovated and rebuilt. Original plates remain in the hull, as does the ship bell that the captain proudly rings on departure. She is the pride of the shipping company and with her appealing interior in shiny mahogany-like woods and spacious aft decks, she is advantageously used for weddings and smaller events.

The boat you go on when you want to find the perfect beach for you and your travel companions! She is our second oldest ship and she carries her age with all the dignity one would expect from a hundred year old lady. The ship was built in 1911 at Motala Shipyard and underwent a major renovation of the wheelhouse, bow and hull for the 100th anniversary in 2011. The boat is used in summer for scheduled traffic in the inner parts of Byfjorden and has for many years connected Uddevalla with the smaller seaside resorts.

M / S Sunningen offers a shorter excursion with a beautiful view of the Uddevalla Bridge. During the period June to August, she makes about 6,000 additions. The ship has a guide facility. The boat is open for charter April-October, but not the period June-August when she operates 6 piers with great opportunities for swimming and crab fishing. Departure takes place from Södra hamnen Uddevalla, opposite Bohuslän’s museum.

Skärgårdsbåtarnas vision är att skapa hållbara upplevelser och tjänster ombord våra båtar i Uddevalla och Bohuslän


If you are in the mood for a holistic experience we reccomend a trip with m/s Byfjorden. She takes you between the cobs and cuts while enjoying a bite to eat and a glass of wine. All the senses satisfied – it won’t be any better that this! M/S Byfjordens day cruises depart several times a week, from May to September. 

With her home port in Uddevalla, she travels via Henån and Bokenäs and makes her way through the beautiful archipelago to destinations such as Bassholmen, Lysekil, Käringön and Smögen. Evening cruises To experience the Bohuslän archipelago in the afternoon sun is something special. M/S Byfjorden takes you on seafood cruises, music and barbecue evenings.
