The Electrolux Group, which created the Archimedes outboard for the Swedish navy during the war, was looking for a civilian market for these outboards.
Since no suitable boats were available, they developed their own type of boat.
The result was the "Skärgårdsbåt S 10 M" that was generally known under the name "Electrolux boat."
built three models of the Skärgårdsbåt: P510
(5.1 m length), S1M (P525)
(5.25 m length) and P540 (5.4 m length).
The hulls of the boats were manufactured in clinker style from eleven mahogany planks on steamed oak frames.
With the Archimedes B-22 (10-12 HP) at the stern, the boat reached a speed of approximately 10 knots.
