Spar Shipping Ltd. was founded in 1991 as an extension of the two companies "Øby" and "Langø". Since then the fleet has been expanded with M/V Bjørnsholm, M/V Skipper and good old M/V Jeppe. Since 1984 we have provided ferry services to Flakfortet and later also to Middelgrundsfortet.

The company arranges events at sea, private charter, arrangements of any art as well as fishing on the Øresund. Spar Shipping was behind the cooperation of VisitHven and started with great success the route from Copenhagen to the Swedish island of Hven with M/V Jeppe. The company has over the years solved a myriad of tasks of various kinds, including:


  • Various ferry services around Denmark
