The Royal Cruiser I type Solö Lyx II and later Solö Lyx III were the direct successors of the Royal Cruiser I/Solö Aqua Lyx. Like the predecessor, which got the name 'Aqua' because of its type of drive, the Solö Lyx II/III were also equipped with the Volvo-Penta Aquamatic-drive. However, completely new was the hull, which was manufactured in GRP by Storebro for the first time.
The difference between the Solö Lyx II and the Solö Lyx III is the layout. The Solö Lyx II took over the cockpit layout familiar from its predecessor Solö Aqua Lyx, with the driver's seat bench and kitchen block behind. The Solö Lyx III received the later also common on all other ships variant with separate driver and passenger seats on both sides.
In addition to changing the layout of the Solö Lyx II to III, a number of minor modifications were made. One visible from the outside is the introduction of sliding windows in the cabin. Although this brought a much better ventilation, it also brought the same problems with the tightness that were known by the owners of the Storö III and Storö IV. Another modification concerned the canopy.
At the fair in Gothenburg in 1968 the Solö Lyx II was offered for 30,800 DM (German Marks), engine included.
