Sukanen Ship Tour (Yorkton)

The Sontiainen (also known as the Sukanen Ship) is an interesting cross between Finnish and Saskatchewan history. Originally built by Tom Sukanen (hence the name), it was a madman's dream to sail back to his homeland.

Tom Sukanen

Tom Sukanen, the builder of the ship, immigrated from Finland to the US and eventually to Canada. When he finally decided to build his ship, he had gathered a small fortune for that time and used it all for ship material. He was so obsessed with building the ship that he started tearing his house apart for ship material.
