Instant help in Swedish waters!

Sail safely and benefit from our services when visiting Swedish waters.

Sjöassistans is offering foreign boating visitors the boat-owner service and peace of mind when sailing in Swedish waters. We are the leading supplier of maritime service and support to the boating-community in the Nordic. Since the start in 1999, we have already assisted more than 15.000 seafarers. Sjöassistans is operated by and co-located with Stockholmradio.

As a member of Sjöassistans you are free to use our service as often as you wish or need. We know that a lot can happen while you are at sea. A broken impeller, a rope in the prop, a busted throttle-wire, out of petrol, batteries gone flat, engine overheats, just to mention a few of the most common problems. If you run into a problem like that, assistance is only a VHF- or cellphone call away, 24 hours a day 7 days a week!

The cost for this service is under normal circumstances covered to 100 % by the insurance which is included in the membership fee. Hence, you no longer need to worry about the costs or how to solve the problem.

The main components of the insurance are:

  • Towing/salvage to the nearest shipyard, maximum cost SEK 6000,-
  • Transport of petrol, spare-parts or divers etc, maximum cost SEK 3000,-
  • Cost for travel back home if your boat suffers a major problem, maximum SEK 6000,-

The direct cost for the service given by the mechanic or diver, and for petrol and spare-parts is not covered by the insurance.

In addition to this we can also assist with advice and consultation on various subjects such as weather forecasts, opening hours of bridges or locks, where to eat or anchor and much more. Advice and consultation are free of charge.

N.B. contact with Sjöassistans is only available in swedish or english language.
