We found the Intarsia of K3 and K4!


Already in 1953 when the KUNGSHOLM III was delivered, there was a special piece of artwork in the Main Lounge. It was a big Intarsia that covered most of the backwall.


The Intarsia is "Gestalter och Byggnadsverk i Sveriges Historia" by Rudolf Persson. The Intarsia was transfered to KUNGSHOLM IV upon completion of the ship in 1966. It remained aboard the K4 until her scrapping in India in 2015.


It was lost for almost 1,5 years only to re-appear a couple of weeks ago.


The new SAL was offered to aquire it from India and finally bring it back home to Sweden!


Our aim is for the Intarsia to get a honorary placement aboard the upcoming KUNGSHOLM 5 and thus continue the legacy of the K3 and K4..!


As the new KUNGSHOLM 5 will not be launched until 2021, we are currently discussing alternatives for placement of the Intarsia in Sweden. The plan is to have it displayed and maintained by professionals at a location where as many as possible can come and visit it.


A special thank you to Mr. Peter Knego with associates for their help in saving this masterpiece for future generations to enjoy!
