  Remarks  
The Solö 25 was the last variant of the popular Solö-series. The hull, layout and design were similar to older Solö models. However, the yard continued in this boat on inboard engine with shaft instead of the Aquamatic.

Miscellaneous
A prominent buyer of the Royal Cruiser I (25) was the popular Swedish actor Nils Poppe (Wikipedia). However, his boat (S/N 2410) has been badly damaged by the overturning crane at delivery. The crane operator had simply forgotten to extend the seaward supports. It was then a matter of Lars Bjureus to inform shipyard boss Lennart Ivarsson about the incident. Ivarsson greeted him affably on the phone by saying, "... and you dropped the boat off the hook?". Bjureus confirmed with a silent "Yes". After this message also Ivarsson remained fairly quiet.
The yard then built a new boat for Nils Poppe immediately. The insurance still had the badly damaged ship repaired. It now belongs to a Danish owner.
