HMS Ystad

HMS Ystad

Wanna go for a ride in the Swedish archipelago aboard a missile-armed ship? Well, now you can. Thanks to The Association of Swedish Missile Boats. They took over this ship a decade ago when it was retired from active duty in the Swedish marines. This is the HMS Ystad. I spotted the ship heading for the Berga base earlier in the week.

Off the active list though it may be, it still looks like a tough ship.

I must agree HMS Ystad, tough ship.

It must be nice to sail on a boat like that. The feeling of safety, I mean...
And your photo is spectacular! Thanks Stefan.
