Re-rigged the Chapman returns
A SYMBOLIC part of Stockholm’s skyline returned home this week after a lengthy renovation. The 120-year-old af Chapman has had a 17-month dry-docking and complete refit costing around $16.7m. The vessel was built in the UK in 1888 as the Dunboyne and traded around the capes under British and Norwegian flags before becoming a floating hostel 60 years ago. The full-rigger has been renovated to its original cabin designs, although with modern facilities and a lift. Renovation took place in a unique underground wet dock owned by the Swedish military in the Stockholm archipelago. Craig Eason
