Boats in Stockholm




I love boats. If you missed the part where I lived on a narrowboat for a few years (before I started blogging)... well, I'll tell more stories about that another day. Suffice it to say that the romance wore off for a while when day-to-day life was all about emptying chemical toilets and running out of drinking water, but now that I'm firmly back on dry land my daydreaming has taken a distinctly nautical turn again.

It follows that Stockholm, built on a series of islands, was daydream heaven.


One of the first boats we really noticed (after our hotel) was, actually, more of a private cruise ship. Can you imagine owning something like this, all for yourself? You'd have to invite all your friends just to avoid rattling around.




At the other extreme of bare-bones functionality, this awesome racing catamaran certainly stopped me in my tracks. I was only sorry not to see it in action.


Which would you prefer to try out? If I only got a short trip, I'd go for the racer, although if I had chance to own one then I'm sure I'd get more use out of the super-yacht! But I'd be a bit sorry to have a ship with no sails. This 'for sale' ad might just capture my perfect ship.


PS the lovely Krysten at After I Do has kindly posted a review and interview about Rebellion. Go check it out!

These boats are different, with each being their own style....I agree with the toilets and water!

We have a saying that if you don't get wet, it's not sailing - and that superyacht might be comfortable, but it's not about sailing, is it?

Right - so sign me up for the superyacht. :)

Lovely photos. I did have a laugh at the romance wearing off!

You were here in Stockholm - where I live! Looks as if you stayed at the Af Chapman. Hope you had a great time.

If I were given this post title and had to close my eyes and imagine pictures to go with it, they would look just like these! So iconic! Awesome!

I've always had a thing for boats myself. I always imagine this life to be a beautiful, simple, romantic, and rewarding one...
