TT Line Tom Sawyer

Welcome on board of Tom Sawyer

The attractive Swedish ferry has 134 cabins for a good 400 passengers. On 9 decks there are 3 vehicle decks (decks 1, 3, 5) and 3 decks with cabins, cafeteria, lounge, our TT-Line Shop, casino and sauna as well as the crew decks.

Following a competition for the names of the two sister ships, TT-Line employees in Sweden and Germany have chosen the names of the two heroes from the famous novels of writer Mark Twain. His classic of the youth literature "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" appeared in 1876, in which the orphan boy Tom and his best friend Huck Finn experience exciting adventures on, along and in the Mississippi River. They find gold treasures, help escaped slaves and much more. 

Technical Specifications

Our TT-Line Sweden ferry put into service in January 1989 and was built at the Schichau Seebeckswerft in Bremerhaven (as "Robin Hood IV") and is powered by four diesel engines. After a conversion in 1993, the ferry operated as "Nils Holgersson V" and was renamed "Tom Sawyer" in 2001. The strict regulations for the sulphur special areas, which include the entire Baltic Sea, have allowed a maximum sulphur content of 0.1% in marine fuels since 01.01.2015. M/S Tom Sawyer runs the low-sulphur diesel fuel, which is more expensive than normal marine fuel.
