The first “Colin Archer” was built in 1893, tailored for the rough seas off the coast of Norway. The name soon became synonymous with boats of this type and now “Anni Thryssøe”, built by the Colin Archer Guild in Denmark, offers leisure tours to associations, schools and locals. VIKING supports the guild with liferafts and lifejackets.
The ferry MØN
The ferry MØN is a "floating bike path" in the summer season between Stege on Moen and Kalvehave in southern Zealand. A maritime attraction and a traffic safe alternative for both residents and tourists. The ferry is the last riveted steel ferry and also Denmark's oldest preserved ferry, over 90 years.
