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. In 2022 and 2023 the ship has sailed in Europe and it is now moored in its home port Gothenburg. Read our latest news here and scroll down to the bottom of this page to sign up for our newsletter.

Thank you, and farewell Stockholm

14 July 2022

As we set sail from Stockholm, the long rivalry between the second city Göteborg and the capital lays buried, as the Ship Götheborg was given pride of place at Skeppsbrokajen 105 by Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s Old Town.

Thank you, and goodbye Helsinki

29 June 2022

As we sail for Stockholm, we say a warm and heartfelt thank you to beautiful Helsinki for hosting us for a few days. We were spoiled by the beautiful weather that you laid on for us. Also, we could not have hoped for a more beautiful view, as Götheborg was moored by the south quay where crew and visitors got a view of the city Cathedral and surrounding architecture.

Some changes will be made to the sailing leg from Helsinki to Stockholm, and arrival at the stopover in Stockholm will be moved to a few days later. This is due to a visit to the drydock (in Stockholm) that we want to make with the ship, while we are still in Northern Europe.
