Boat info

The boat is called Irini which is a greek word for peece.

Irini´s call signal is SFE-4236
“Sierra Foxtrot Echo – four two three six”

She was built in Finland as early as 1986 and the model is one of the most common motorboats in Sweden and Finland.

Maximum speed is 30 knots

Irini is a vintage boat, with modern safety. She only consumes about 0,8 liters of petrol at about 20 knots and saves the environment compared to these heavy and high powered RIB-boats.

Its a good thing for the planet and also for setting the price. Most often we can offer a archipelago tour for 30-60% lower prices than other hi-cost companies.

With that comes a little patina, but the experience or safety is never compromised.

Vintage boat – Modern safety

Our ship carries an easy to use VHF station. In case of an emergency, any passenger can press the distress button. When pressed, Sweden rescue will be notified with an digital May-Day and position.

You can then speak into the microphone to explain the situation.

First hand, the skipper would make the distress call. But if nessecery, any passages is allowed, if the situation is life threatning.

It is also possible to contact Sweden rescue to get medical advise in an distress situation.

Sweden Rescue is Swedens JRCC, Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre.

The VHF radio can also help us communicate with other boats and ships. Most common to clearify intentions, not to collide.

With our small motorboat, manouvering to avoid collisions is very easy.

About Me

My name is Björn. I run this bout tour service alongside with my portrait photography studio; called Björn Fotograf. My boat is just a short walk away from the studio and it rides the waves at Bergsundstrand.

Already at 16 years of age, I studied to be a skipper and over the years I have done a lot of boating in Stockholm Mälaren and Stockholm Arcipelago. 

I am licenced and trained to be your professional skipper, and I do it with heart and compassion.

For me the sea is air and life. It is stillness and action. The beauty of Stockholm and it´s waterways is breathtaking and it fills my heart.

Life, is now! Let´s live it!

Boat Tour in Stockholm is a service by Björn Fotograf Stockholm AB

The company Björn Fotograf Stockholm AB is a portrait studio at the center of Hornstull, Södermalm.

As a professional photographer I have a passion for forms, light and beauty. With Stockholm archipelago around me, and my boat close to the studio, I can enjoy bookings of both boat tours and photography sessions. Sometimes I can also combine the two.
