But the crew on the ship were never in danger, according to the Swedish Coast Guard.
It is the second time this month that Stockholm's scenic archipelago islands have hit the headlines.
Earlier in October Sweden carried out its biggest military operation in decades around the islands, following reports of a mystery foreign submarine lurking in Swedish waters.
The search was called off after the Swedish military said it thought the vessel had moved on.
