About us

Norway Yacht Charter A/S
The company is the largest operator and owner of fjord cruises, sightseeing boats and ferries on Oslofjorden. The fleet consists mainly of old sailboats measuring between 20 and 35 meters, exclusive entertainment ships and sightseeing boats. The charter boats are used by companies for entertainment and corporate meetings, by Norwegian and foreign travel agencies, and for social gatherings in connection with conventions and conferences in Oslo. Full entertainment for groups of between 8 and 200 guests is provided on all vessels. Through shared services we accommodate up to 600 guests. In addition, the company operates a sightseeing business for tourists with 3 boats and a ferry route with 2 boats.

 
Båtservice Sightseeing A/S
Sightseeing for tourists since 1946. Båtservice Sightseeing AS was started in 1946, and quickly launched regular departures for tourists. In 1950, the company took over Bygdøyfergen, and during the 50's today's 4 creamy boats became specially designed and operated from Rådhusbryggene.

 

Visible in cityscape
We have between 60 and 85 employees at Rådhusbryggene every day. The 4 Kremgule Boat Service Boats have been an important part of the port scene in Oslo since the 50's. Since the sailboat tracks in front of the City Hall in the 80's and 90's, many tourists have wondered whether it is "some kind of boat festival going on"?

 

Great activity
We have employees at Rådhusbryggene from 05.30 in the morning until 23.00 every day during the summer months. Our ticket kiosk at Rådhusbrygge 3 is served from 08.30 to 19.00 and represents a professional multilingual audience service at Rådhusplassen. The presence has saved 3 people from drowning from Rådhusbrygge 3 in the last 10 years.

 

Recruitment and training of 30 young people each year
Recruitment to the Maritime sector. We employ about 30 new young people to our boats each year. These receive maritime basic training and speed and are sent at the public security rate for approximately ½ million kroner annually. We are the largest in the country on this. Many of the officers and crew on both Christian Radic and Nesoddboats have started their careers at the Norway Yacht Charter. The same applies to Oslo Sjøskole and in Color Line.
