Welcome to the page of the steam icebreaker s/s Sankt Erik. A working museum ship from 1915. This page is run by the Friend’s of Sankt Erik, ”Föreningen s/s Isbrytaren Sankt Eriks vänner”.

Sankt Erik has been in the docs this winter, to replace some steel plates. We hope to be back in business with some pleasure trips in the summer of 2020. To book or ask about her, please send a mail to kontakt@sankterik1915.se and we’ll provide the information.

Sankt Erik’s main engine, a tripple expansion steam engine of 2800 hp, is probably the largest working marine steam engine in the world today.
