A ROYAL VISIT IN STOCKHOLM
Kungliga Svenska Segelsällskapet – The Royal Swedish Yacht Club (KSSS) operates several guest marinas in the outer Stockholm archipelago. In a move to attract more boat-borne tourists to the capital – with its abundance of restaurants and other attractions – KSSS were looking to build a new marina at Djurgården, in the very heart of Stockholm.
The new state-of-the-art floating marina provides 120 guest berths and offers visitors direct access to Stockholm, and in particular all the attractions at Djurgården, including the children’s cultural centre Junibacken and the Vasa Museum. The new marina is also home to KSSS’s floating boat show and hosts many of the yachts competing in Gotland Runt, the world’s largest annual offshore race. KSSS Djurgårdshamn is made up of ten pontoons, 20 metres in length and three metres wide, linked and secured using precast concrete anchors and heavy-duty chains.
The marina was designed and built by SF Marina in Wallhamn, Sweden and was opened in July 2021.
