HMS Jägaren (V150)


General history and facts:

”HMS Jägaren (V150)” is built in 1972 by Bergen Mekaniske Verksted for the Swedish Navy as a Storm-class patrol boat. It was launched on 8th of June and entered service on 24th of November, 1972. It was serving as patrol vessel until 1988, when it was re-classified as fast-attack craft (FAC). This was the time, when the original Bofors 57 mm naval automatic gun Mk1 was exchanged with the current Bofors 40 mm naval automatic gun. The engines were down-scaled to a less powerful option and consequently the maximum speed was reduced from 35 to 21 knots. On 7th of April 2016 the boat was decommissioned from the navy and later renovated at Öckerö’s shipyard. On 19th of August 2016, HMS Jägaren was acquired by Maritime Museum in Stockholm, which passed the ownership to the Föreningen Svenska Patrullbåtar. Since then the ship is a historical heritage and is used for passenger trips.
