1 National Maritime Museums of Sweden (SMM). The Vasa Museum (Stockholm) The Maritime Museum (Stockholm) The Naval Museum (Karlskrona)

2 Ships and boats – SMM. Five larger ships, not counting Vasa. Close to 200 boats (leisure, naval, commercial) in the boat collection. Small number of ships on Bareboat Charter.

3 Historic ships in Sweden. Private owners. Non commercial organisations – mainly sailing ships. Commercial – steam, motor and sail. Museum ships – mixed collection.

4 SMM´s role. Supportive. ”K-märkning” (”Listed ships”) – recognition of important ships. Networks, forums. Preservation of our own ships and boats. Bare Boat Charter – ships on loan.

5 SMM- ship preservation. No “official” standard for ship preservation in Sweden. Available resources (funds, personnel) key factors. Committed to our own ships “forever”.

6 Ship preservation – problems SMM – Icebreaker Sankt Erik. First seagoing icebreaker in Sweden (1915). Large and complicated to maintain. Fantastic steam engines.

7 SMM – lightship Finngrundet. Early museum ship (1970). Relic of a bygone era.

8 SMM – minesweeper Bremön. Historic context- 2 nd World War. Fantastic condition.

9 SMM – missile ship Västervik. “Pawn from the Cold War”. Excellent condition. Frozen in time.

10 SMM – full rigger Jarramas. Last sailing ship built in Karlskrona. Important for the local community. Ongoing restoration project.

11 SMM – the restoration of Jarramas. Long term project. High standard of craftsmanship. No modernisation. Replace like with like as far as possible.

12 SMM – more about Jarramas. Restoring the ship is one thing, but how do you tell the story?

13 SMM -the future for historic ships. More focus on networks, Bareboat Charter and partnerships. Probably fewer ships within SMM.

14 SMM – The end. Thank you for your time. Good sailing this summer.
