Kalmarsund VIII was a car and passenger ferry that operated the route between Färjestaden and Kalmar until 1972. Built in 1963 at the Kalmar shipyard for Ångbåts AB Kalmarsund, she was a reliable ferry until she sailed as the last car ferry on the route. In 2002 she returned to Färjestaden and made regular trips between Kalmar and Färjestaden as well as chartered trips for a few summers.
