About the company

The company

SOIC Ship Management owns Götheborg of Sweden. The mission of SOIC Ship Management AB is to ensure that the ship is kept in excellent condition and will continue to sail the oceans of the world. This will be fulfilled through our future expeditions.

Götheborg of Sweden is the world's largest, ocean-going, wooden sailing ship. After six years at her home quay, extensive maintenance work, including two shipyard visits, as well as lifting and inspecting the mainmast, the ship will sail to Stockholm in August 2021 and to Asia in 2022.
