Information

Eldey

Story

Eldey (formely known as M/S Sund Buss Erasmus) was built in 1971 by Lindstölds Skips og Båtbyggeri A/S, Risør (Norway) along with her two sister ships: M/S Sund Buss Magdelone and the M/S Sund Buss Jeppe.

M/S Erasmus served as a ferry from Helsingborg to Helsingor (Sweden) until September 2001 when it was bought by Landskrona and was then put in service as the ferry between Landskrona and Ven (Sweden) and renamed M/S Norreborg December 2001.

Eldey joined the Elding family in late April 2015 and has undergone renovations to make it more suited to the service we provide. She is used on our daily whale watching tours and northern lights cruises in winter and is available for private and incentive tours all year round.
