M/S Frida


General history and facts:

”M/S Frida” is a car and passenger ferry built in 1978 by “AB Åsi-verken”, Åmål, Sweden. It was delivered the same year to the the Swedish Road Administration under the name “Färja 61/303”. Originally, it was assigned the Lilla Varholmen–Öckerö line, but in 1981 it was transferred to the route Lilla Varholmen–Hönö and in 1984 to the Östanå–Ljusterö line. In 1988 the name of the ferry was changed to “Frida”. In 2001 it was modernised ad extended in length and breadth with 12.00/0.20 m respectively to its modern dimensions. As part of the process, new engines of the model Scania DSI 11, 1,080 hp (794 kW) were also installed. In 2003 “Frida” was moved to Furusund–Yxlan route, but next year was transferred to the Östanå–Ljusterö line. 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 “Frida”. In 2014 it was assigned to its current route, Furusund–Yxlan.
