The M/S June is the world’s oldest registered ship with overnight accommodations. It was originally built at the Motala Shipyard and launched in 1874. The ship was originally to be named the Darwin in honour of the British scientist, but after objections from certain shareholders, the boat was named the Juno after the goddess of marriage and motherhood.
The ship was painted black with a white line around the deck and the portholes were originally square. The Juno had a long, thin funnel, which was typical at the time. She also had one single passenger cabin on the upper deck.

The boat was thoroughly rebuilt at Motala Werkstad in 1904 and in 1956 her steam engine was replaced by two diesel engines. Her current appearance dates back to 1963.
