Barcelona is our winter stopover, and we will stay until March 2023. During this stopover we will focus a lot on preparations for sailing in 2023. It is possible to join us as a volunteer on board to work with the maintenance of the ship. In addition to being open every day in December, we also plan to be open to visitors during weekends in January, February and March. Welcome on board!

Visiting Götheborg of Sweden

Götheborg is fascinating and unique – a ship loaded with experience. A genuine working ship with a vibrant history, scarred by harsh storms and marked by thousands upon thousands of nautical miles on the seven seas. Here visitors get to learn everything from captivating stories of sailing to the tremendous art of shipbuilding, in a contemporary 18th-century environment.

Volunteering on board

During our winter stopover, we are welcoming volunteers on board, to work with the maintenance of the ship. The main job will be caulking outside of the hull, above the water line. We will also be re-tightening the wooldings of the bowsprit and other jobs will also be taking place. And of course, a lot of taring of the standing rigging to preserve it from rain and sun is necessary. 

Götheborg is arriving to Gothenburg

01 June 2023

Tomorrow, 2 June at 15:00, we will arrive in Gothenburg to officially open the 400-year jubilee with gun salute. Come and welcome us home!! We would of course love to have some company on the water coming into Gothenburg, and welcome boats to join us! Already today, the 1st of June, you will be able to see us in the Gothenburg archipelago. 

Meet the owner of Götheborg of Sweden

29 May 2023

Meet the owner and a big heart behind Götheborg of Sweden, the world’s largest ocean-going wooden sailing ship. It was a purchase decision that came from the heart, rather than from rational business thinking, says Stefan Björk, founder and owner of Greencarrier Group and Götheborg of Sweden.

Hamburg – an important portstop for Greencarrier

24 May 2023

Hamburg was specifically chosen as a key stopover for Götheborg as Greencarrier (our owner) opened new offices in Hamburg in April. On Monday, we were very pleased to welcome especially invited customers, partners and friends of Greencarrier Group on board.
