The Queen Of The Coast.












MS SANDNES, also named The Queen Of The Coast and The Night Route, was made back in 1950.

Every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday evening at 21.00 it left from Stavanger and stopped at several small places along the coast on it's way to Bergen where it arrived 07.00 the following morning. The day was used to empty the goods, bring new things onboard and clean and prepare food.

Today it is used for special events, and it is sometimes open as a restaurant/cafe you can visit.
It is well kept and has style inside, with the dark wood, beautiful furniture, and art on the walls.

Lovely boat, and she has her flags flying too! It brings back memories of Stavanger to me.
