Shipowners and captains since the 1700's

Welcome to the home of Furetank: Donsö, the small island with an entrepreneurial spirit and more than 10 international shipping companies.

In this film you get to know our owners, the Höglund family: captains and shipowners since the 1700’s. Story told by CEO Lars Höglund. 

It especially warms our heart that the passion of his father Hans is depicted in this film, since he is no longer with us. But new ships and generations continue to carry Furetank forward…

Thank you our insurance company The Swedish Club for a heart-warming film, portraying the spirit of Furetank.
