The colourful history of S/S Bore started in Sweden in 1960. During its active years, the vessel sailed on the Baltic Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, for example. Finally, Bore ended up as a teaching and museum ship in Turku (Finland), after many owners and through various twists and turns.
S/S Bore was built in Oskarshamn, Sweden, in 1960. The ship sailed on the route Turku–Mariehamn (Finland)–Stockholm. During these seventeen years, the ship, known as ‘Zero Bore’, established its place in the hearts of Turku residents.
S/S Bore is located on the shore of the Aura River, on Linnankatu. S/S Bore is easy to reach by both public transport and a car. There are public transport stops near the hostel and the ship terminal is only a short walk away from S/S Bore. You can view S/S Bore on the map here.
