Heading out once again

Asia Expedition 2022/2023

Götheborg of Sweden is the world's largest ocean-going wooden sailing ship, and she will create great attention wherever she goes. We are now on a great expedition to Asia! During a two year adventure, we are sailing in Europe in 2022 and will continue to Asia in 2023.

Bonjour Monaco! 

After just a very short trip, we have now arrived in Monaco. On board, we have a 2.4 meter high elephant sculpture that we are delivering to HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco. The elephant is a gift from the non-profit organisation The Perfect World Foundation. A very different sight!

We are moored at Quai Reiner III, and will be open to visitors 5–6 October. For this stopover, tickets can only be bought on site and we will not be able to accept card payments. 

We have station guiding on board, which means that the ship deckhands are stationed throughout the ship to answer questions in English. The visit takes about 45 minutes to an hour.
