Asia Expedition 2022/2023

We are hiring deck officers and 2nd Cooks

We are looking for Deck Officers with a passion for sailing on traditional ships, and 2nd Cooks with a passion for serving food in exceptional surroundings. 

We are hiring deck officers and 2nd Cooks

The ship Götheborg is a unique replica of an 18th century trade ship with the same name. To work and sail on the ship is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be part of an exciting project and adventure, in an environment full of passion, creativity and drive. Join us and be part of a unique sailing expedition on board the world's largest wooden sailing ship as she heads out on a fantastic voyage to Asia! 

Götheborg left Gothenburg in the beginning of June 2022 and will sail in Europe during the summer and autumn 2022. She will stay in the Mediterranean during the winter and continue her voyage to Asia in March 2023.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for experienced navigation officers, initially to fill in gaps in the sailing schedule. But with proven ability there might be options for a long-term employment. We have some smaller gaps already in July (the first period we are looking for an officer is 21st – 29th of July), so do not hesitate to get in touch if you are interested.

We are also looking for a 2nd Cook, who is available from 9 August – 17 September. 

Will you join us?
