An eventful history.

When you enter the gangway of Mälardrottningen, you might be walking in the same footsteps of former movie stars, politicians and royals. The ship was built in 1924 for Mr C.K.G Billings, a millionaire from New York, and was at that time the world’s largest diesel driven yacht.

Since 1982, Mälardrottningen has been at her current location and only leaves the dock for maintenance every fifth year.

When you enter the gangway of Mälardrottningen, you might be walking in the same footsteps of former movie stars, politicians and royals. The ship was built in 1924 for Mr C.K.G Billings, a millionaire from New York, and was at that time the world’s largest diesel driven yacht.

The ship was later bought by the Woolworth-millionaire Frank W. Hutton. Barbara Hutton, the Woolworth heiress received it as a gift from her father on her 18th birthday. Barbara lived an extravagant life among royals and movie stars and in the 1940’s she was married to Cary Grant.

She later sold the ship to the Royal British Navy for one pound sterling.

During the Second World War the ship was anchored very shortly in Panama and later on moved to Norway where she was used as a training ship. During the fifties the ship was used as a passenger ferry between Stockholm and Åbo in Finland.

Since 1982, Mälardrottningen has been at her current location and only leaves the dock for maintenance every fifth year.
