Ocean Bus was founded in 2013 by Michael Odell and the brothers Max and Paul Ekwall. The company's goal was to be first in Scandinavia with an Amphibious Bus.
Because of the swedish and European Union's strict laws and regulations, the project involved considerably more efforts than we had anticipated from the start. Nevertheless, after several meetings with authorities, inspection- and interest bodies as well as travels to the manufacturing plant in the United States, Ocean Bus maid her maiden voyage on Royal Djurgården in Stockholm in August 2014.
The amphibious bus, which is named after Princess Estelle of Sweden, complies with the security requirements for both bus and passenger ships. She has been tested and approved by the Swedish inspection bodies and transport agency. She has all necessary safety equipment and driven by specially trained personnel.
Ocean Bus would like to express our gratitude to everyone who has helped to make this happen. Without all of you this would not have been possible.
Looking forward to seeing all of you on board
Ocean Bus Crew
