M/S Fragancia


General history and facts:

”M/S Fragancia” is a car and passenger ferry, launched on 21st of October 1971 by AB Åsiverken and delivered to the Swedish Road Administration later that year under the name “Färja 61/289”. Until 1981, the ferry was serving the route Vaxholm-Rindö. In 1982 the ferry was enlarged from the original 64 m to the current length of 74 m and it was fit with new engines, Scania DSI 11 40M 20, 1,080 hp (794 kW). In 1983 it was assigned Östanå–Ljusterö line, in 1984 Furusund–Yxlan line and in 1988 back to the route Östanå–Ljusterö. In 1992 it was renamed to “Fragancia” and after another engine exchange, in 1993 was transferred to Slagsta–Jungfrusund line. In the next years “Fragancia” alternated several routes in different parts of the Stockholm's archipelago transport system until 2006, when it was positioned at Oxsjupet strait. In 2010 there was a modernisation in the road administration system and a new entity of “Trafikverket” was created. From 2010 “Trafikverket Färjerederiet” manages and runs the ferry. In 2015 the engines were renewed to Volvo Penta D9-300, 1,200 hp (882 kW) at “Oskarshamnsvarvet Sweden AB”.
