Welcome aboard Falken

The cozy little one in the flock

M/S Falken is Hjejleselskabet’s smallest boat, primarily used for rentals.

Falken is very popular and sets the stage for unforgettable experiences every year. The boat is arranged slightly differently from the others, featuring not only four 4-person tables but also a large oval table inside the salon that can accommodate 10 guests. This allows for a different kind of board meeting or cozy family gathering.

Welcome aboard the company’s small VIP boat.

Since 1909

Falken's story

1909
Falken was built in 1909 and sailed under the name ‘Hohenau’ on scheduled routes between the German North Sea islands and the mainland.

1919
After World War I, Hjejleselskabet was looking for another motorboat for its fleet due to the rising coal prices during the war. Hjejleselskabet purchased Falken for 5,600 marks. Silkeborg Avis wrote upon its arrival that ‘once it receives much-needed paint, it will adorn Hjejlen’s splendid fleet.’

1924
Already in the winter of 1924-25, Falken underwent renovations in dry dock in Silkeborg. The boat’s first decade in seawater had taken its toll on the hull, leading to the replacement of a total of 40 plates.

1996
The most extensive renovation took place in the winter of 1996-97. Falken was taken to Hvide Sande Shipyard and Boat Builders, where a new bottom was welded onto the existing one.
