Gota Canal Ships

The Gota Canal boats were designed specifically to fit the locks, which allow a maximum length of 32 m, a beam of 7 m and a draft of 2.82 m. A long time ago, steam power gave way to diesel engines. The boats fulfill stringent laws on maritime safety. The sanitary arrangements have been modernized and closed tanks installed to protect the environment. The original design of the steamers has, however, been preserved, together with their traditional atmosphere. Each steamer has a crew of 12.
