|The arrival of the Swedish royal yacht in August 1925 was quite an event in Helsinki|
Sadly, royal yachts are nowadays an endangered species. Fortunately the Danish and the Norwegian royal families still uphold the tradition with HDMY Dannebrog - perhaps the most beautiful royal yacht ever - and the HNoMY Norge.
In the 1920s the King of Sweden still had a beautiful yacht at his disposal for official visits. In August 1925 the yacht took King Gustav V and Queen Victoria to Helsinki on an official visit.
