    Strønstad of VDS (Vesterålens Dampskipsselskap)

    This is a VDS image of Strønstad of Vesterålens Steamshipcompany which was printed in an old calendar from the early 1980's.

    I have searched a bit online but could not find any information on what ever happened to her and where she today sails (hopefully not scrapped or sunk).

    Does anyone have any information on her current whereabouts?

    With best regards from Jan-Olav Storli

    Can this be the ship you are looking for.

      She looks a bit different, but I think it could very well be her: just slightly rebuilt.

      Nice to see that she is still in operation. She has a very handsome design.

      Thanks for the link!

          Thank you very much Harald Jarl: she looks really ... 'pretty'...

          Actually quite splendid with fresh paint and sporting the old VDS logo on the bow!

              That is a nice image, she looks quite stunning. It's almost thrilling seeing a vessel carrying the blue band of VDS... ! Thank you so much for catching her for all of us!

                    The old local boat "Strønstad" from Vesterålen has now got a new home address in Tromsø.
                    The new owners will operate with VIP cruise in the fjords and tours in and around Tromsø.

                    Here she is inbound to Tromsø this afternoon.

                      Nice image and thank you so very much for the update this cute vessel.

                      I wonder if they still have their original main engine and/or any other original parts from her time as a VDS vessel... at least she has the good funnel paint still on!
