Ever since Ole Øvstedal set out on his first trip on 1 July 1906, there has always been an Øvstedal at the wheel of the Gjende boats. Harald, the present skipper, is fourth generation, and you might see the fifth generation running along by the quayside. You can get to know the family, the boats and the employees a little better here.
