On March 15, 1931, the Gota Canal Steamship Company’s new passenger and cargo ship, the M/S Diana, was delivered from the Finnboda Shipyard in Stockholm. She had been ordered in anticipation of a wave of Swedish-American guests during the Tercentenary Celebration and was designed to travel the Gota Canal between Gothenburg and Stockholm.
Named after the goddess of the hunt and chastity, the Diana was Sweden’s last steamship in regular canal service. It wasn’t until 1969 that her steam engine was replaced with a diesel motor.

In 1975, the Diana was rebuilt to its current specifications. In 1967, she sank at the quay in Trollhattan as a result of an unsuccessful attempt to pump her dry. Once raised, she was condemned, but the company decided to completely renovate the ship. The number of cabins were reduced and other areas of the boat were outfitted for meetings of various types. This resulted in the dining room and lounge being remade into one large room.
