Götheborg of Sweden is the world’s largest ocean-going wooden sailing ship and a unique replica of an 18th century Swedish East India Company ship that sank outside of Gothenburg in 1745. Today, the ship invites paying deckhands to sail on board between ports and learn how to sail an 18th century ship. In ports, it is also a popular visitor destination.

The ship is now on an expedition, sailing in Europe in both 2022 and 2023. Beginning of June 2023, Götheborg will return to its home port Gothenburg to play an important role in the 400-year jubilee of the city of Gothenburg!
