|The King´s Cruiser is the first sailing boat built by Örnmaskiner. The model was built in cooperation with G. Andersson and AB Telfa in Gothenburg, who also owned the name and plans. The ship was drawn by Tord Sundén. While Örnmaskiner built the ships, AB Telfa took care of the distribution. Most ships were sold to the USA, but also to Italy.
As the partner companies were planning a change to GRP hulls, which Ivar Gustafsson rejected, the cooperation was discontinued. The shipyard developed the Örnen series instead.

The King´s Cruisers received their own serial numbers from AB Telfa, which did not correspond to the serial numbers assigned by Örnmaskiner. However, in some cases the numbers of the ships can still be determined, as at times both numbers were noted in the delivery lists.
Like the Svanö/Bergö, the King´s Cruiser was delivered in many bright hull colours. These included the shades of green, blue, turquoise, red and cream white.
