The SAL Blog

Working on the salship.se website

The salship.se website was started in 1998, when my sons and I needed some kind of activity during a rainy summer week. Since then the website has developed into a huge portal and resource about an important part of 20th century shipping and Swedish corporate history. The site also plays a central part in my interest in the Swedish - American heritage.

Kungsholm in the Persian Gulf

The efforts to save the Kungsholm as a floating hotel in Gothenburg or Stockholm did not succeed. Still, many thanks to Mr Lars G Hallgren for all his work during the last four years, at great expense, to save the Kungsholm!

The ship has been purchased by a group of investors, to be converted in Oman for $30M into a hotel with 250 luxury cabins, intended to be placed in the Persian Gulf.
