|The King's Cruiser is the first sailing boat built by Örnmaskiner. The model was built as a commission for G. Andersson or AB Telfa in Gothenburg, who also owned the name and plans. The ship was drawn by Tord Sundén.
Before the Örnmaskiner company started production of the King's Cruisers, they were also built by Harry Hallberg on Orust. Whether a ship was built by Hallberg or by Örnmaskiner can be identified by the direct production number (see "Miscellaneous").
AB Telfa sold the ships worldwide. Most of the ships were sold to the USA, but also to Italy.
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. The numbers assigned by the shipyard range from 1 to a maximum of 271. The numbers assigned by AB Telfa range from a minimum of 14 (lower is not documented) to a maximum of 337 (higher is not documented).
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.
