The Holmedahl family wishes you a warm welcome on board M/S Storholmen.
Sture, the Captain , started his career working aboard his father’s cargo boat as a boy. Back then the canal was mainly used for commerce, transporting cement, timber and other goods. Sture is a handyman, and takes special care of the boat and her maintenance. He ensures she is looking her best for the beginning of each season.
Annika is in charge of catering and has worked in restaurants when she was younger. In 1980 she studied to become a dietitian and for the past 25 years has worked as food manager in both the public and private sector.
Jacob and Anton, their two sons are now working with new jobs in the north of Sweden. While they were studying they helped out on the boat during their summer holidays.
Sture and Annika, have both worked in the service sector and wanted to continue to do so in their own business. When M/S Storholmen was put up for sale, they, together with their sons, made the decision of a lifetime – to buy her and continue the concept that the previous owners had developed. Keeping the boat’s old traditions alive is important to them as M/S Storholmen has been navigating the canal for almost 80 years.
Apart from M/S Storholmen, the family’s main interests are spending time in the forest and countryside and, time permitting, enjoying a round of golf. When the boat is moored for the winter they go skiing.
