European Tour 2023

Expedition 2023

Götheborg of Sweden is the world's largest ocean-going wooden sailing ship, an 18th century replica of the original Götheborg that sank outside of Gothenburg in 1745, and will create great attention wherever she goes. We are now on expedition, sailing in Europe in both 2022 and 2023. Beginning of June 2023, Götheborg will return to its home port Gothenburg to play an important role in the 400-year jubilee of the city of Gothenburg! 

Until March 2023 we are moored in Barcelona for our winter stopover.
