General history and facts:

”M/S Linea” is a car and passenger ferry built in 1969 by “ Kalmar varv AB”, Sweden for “Statens Vägverk”. It was delivered on 12th of February 1969 under the name “Färja 61/277” and put into the traffic on the route Östanå–Ljusterö. In 1970 it was transferred to Vaxholm–Rindö line, in 1972 to Rindö–Stenslätten, in 1974 to Vaxholm–Rindö and in 1978 to the route Munsö–Adelsö.
