In a city divided by a river, a port ferry is a must-have. There have been different ferries during different eras in Gothenburg. From the mid-1960s to the 1990s, the stretch between Rosenlund and Lindholmen was trafficked by the port ferry Dan Broström and today it is moored at Maritiman.
About Dan Broström
The port ferry Dan Broström was built in 1963 at the Bröderna Larsson shipyard in Kristinehamn, after which it was delivered to Gothenburg’s port board. She trafficked the route between Rosenlund and Lindholmen up until 1990, followed by a couple of years conducting port tours with passengers until being purchased by Maritiman in 1994. The ferry was equipped with two Voith-Schneider systems for propulsion, which thanks to their individually adjustable blades allow excellent manoeuvrability and could replace both propellers and rudder.
Today Matrosen - ferry kitchen & shop is located aboard the Dan Broström.
