The Kemi is closed during the winter season and will open in May 2023.

The bright red lightship Kemi offers a leisurely look at a slower way of life in the 1960s. The summery Kemi is an excellent companion to the legendary winter vessel, the icebreaker Tarmo, on the museum ship pier of Maritime Centre Vellamo.

The Kemi is the last lightship to have operated in Finland. The ship, which was completed in Pori in 1901, secured navigation over the course of decades in various shoals on the Finnish coast. The most recent place the ship was stationed in was Kemi, where its beacon blinked until 1974.

The lightship was a unique workplace, in which the crew worked and lived nearly uninterrupted from the spring until the late autumn, rocking on the waves. The restored Kemi is moored at Maritime Centre Vellamos museum ship pier in Kotka as part of the Maritime Museum of Finlands exhibitions.
