  • (maskinKommentar)Misc: Petter Gedda currently has no propulsion. Petter Gedda was planned to be substantially fixed moored at the dock. However, the regulatory framework in the Ports of Stockholm in 2004 that all ships in the harbor could be driven under its own power. The ship's original engine - a Skandia 2-cylinder compression-ignition engine - was decommissioned in the 1950s. At that time they decided to fill the propeller sleeve with concrete. During the renovation it was decided that the best option was to use diesel electric propulsion and the most economic option was to mount a so-called Schottel. Therefore they installed the generator of 100 hp that via hydraulics can both manage and operate the ship in the estimated cruising speed of 7 knots.
    In 2006 the port changed the regulations and therefore only the generator had become installed and the Schottel propeller was never mounted. Technical documentation is available to complete the installation of schottel and hydraulics.

Mr Petter Gedda was born on 31 December 1661 in Lövånger, Sweden and died June 19, 1697 in Karlskrona, as a Swedish cartographer. Petter Gedda was the son of surveying inspector Johan Persson Gedda and Katarina Palm.

When Petter was thirteen years old, he accompanied his father to historical Ingria (southern shore of the gulf of Finland) and helped him with cartographic chores. During the trip, he had enshrined at Uppsala University, and studied there for a few years after his return in 1678, before he became a surveyor in Turku and Pori.

In 1685 he became inspector of Upplands surveyors, and was the same year officer director and later officer Captain. He was also head of the Navigation office in Karlskrona. His book, "General hydrographic chart book Öfwer Östersiön and Kattegat" was released in 1694, counts as the first real map of the coast of Sweden. It consists of ten maps and printed in Holland.

Modern kitchen with a bar table made from 900 years old black oak and windows facing the foredeck and the pool. Ilves gas stove with 5 burners. Central vacuum system.

Below deck there is a TV room. Guy Designs view with the decor was that you do not really see where the floor ends, wall or ceiling starts and therefore worked with mirrored glass as baseboards and windows close to the ceiling for natural light. The floor is black granit and sealing of glossy laminate.

Aft on lower deck is the master bedroom with private toilet. Fore of the TV-room is another bedroom with private bathroom and shower. Fore are two more bedrooms with double beds.

At the bow of the lower deck there is a sauna, shower and toilet in Italian mosaic. Laundry room with washer and dryer

The former wheelhouse is currently used as an office and has access to the large sun deck. The staircase leads down to the main dining room and continue down to the lower deck.

On the foredeck is a wood burning pool where you can sit and gaze out over the city.

Gangway on the port side. On the aft deck is the entry to the engine room, which today has pumps and generators.

Generator for power supply and starts automatically if shore connection is cut off. Originally installed for using a Schottel propeller in the future. Electrical panels, pumps, alarms and boiler.
