Last time Götheborg sailed to Asia was seventeen years ago, in October 2005. Thousand of people watched from shore as she weighed anchor and set sail, and hundreds of boats followed her out of the harbour. A unique experience for everyone following her voyage and the crew on board. Now it's time again! Come and wave to us from the shore. And if you have a boat, follow us out of the harbour!

Mission to create new business opportunities

In the same vein as in our history, the mission is to promote Swedish-Asian trade and create new business opportunities. The ship is the perfect platform for our partners. 

Thousands of visitors

During the expedition, the ship will make stopovers in ports and cities along the route. We will invite thousands of visitors from the public on board to experience an 18th century ship.

Anyone can sail along – the adventure of a lifetime!

Hundreds of people will also sail with us as deckhands, joining different sailing legs. Deckhand are not required to have any sailing experience. They sail for the once in a lifetime experience.  


Unmooring: 15:30 from Pier 4 in Eriksberg, Gothenburg. 
Gun salute: 16:00 just outside Eriksberg, Gothenburg

Departure weekend in Gothenburg

Visit the ship in Gothenburg 4–6 June

The days before heading out on our great Asia Expedition 2022/2023, the ship will be open to visitors in Gothenburg. This is the last chance to visit her before she heads out, and also to see her at her most beautiful. In preparation for the expedition, extensive work has been done on the ship, and she looks fantastic! Don't miss out on this opportunity!  

Changes to sailing leg 3 and the Stockholm stopover

24 June 2022

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.
