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.
