The passenger boat M/S Sandön was build in Gothenburg in 1910 and is the oldest boat trafficing the Göta canal. Originally, the boat was used as a cargo frighter for the coastal artillery in the swedish province Blekinge. After several owner transfers and remodelings, the boat started trafficing the Göta canal in 1999. The first motor of the M/S Sandön was a steam engine that was operating until 1955.

Today, the M/S Sandön is licensed for 170 passengers, but was originally build for 242 passengers. The restaurant on board of the boat can seat between 120 - 130 guests. The M/S Sandön is accessible, is equipped with a fully functional restaurant kitchen and has the license to serve alcoholic beverages.
