Welcome on board!

On board Götheborg you will visit the beautiful weather deck with the helm, capstan and ship’s bell. Sundeck offers great views of the ship and masts, and down on gun deck there are ten impressive cannons. Don’t miss the two pieces from the original ship, one piece by the historical cupboard with porcelain and chalk pipes on gun deck, and the other one recessed into the helm.

We have station guiding on board when in port. That means that you follow a marked route around the ship and the ship’s deckhands are stationed in different places around the ship, ready to tell you about the ship, sailing on board and the great Asia Expedition. Come prepared with all your questions!

Shop and Exhibition

Next to the ship you will find our shop where you can buy souvenirs from your visit, as well as an exhibition about the history of the original Götheborg, the building of the replica and the current expedition. Welcome!

Where to find us

Götheborg of Sweden will be moored at the quay in between the Playa la Malagueta and Parque de Malaga. Come and see us from the quayside or visit us during our opening hours. Welcome!

Sailing leg ten

The Riviera Run – Malaga to Nice

Another Side of France
It’s time for the Riviera Run!

Shouldn’t an expedition like ours visit France? Of course! We saved our French stop for the Mediterranean, leaving Malaga 20 September with all sails set for the French Riviera. Fifteen years ago, Götheborg visited Nice for the first time, on the way back from Asia. This time we’re eastbound and still just getting started. As always, we have a need for capable deckhands.

As our Asia Expedition 2022/2023 continues with the Riviera Run, we’ll be sailing either east of the Balearic Islands, or west past the Spanish coastline. It’s bound to be a unique experience, getting to spend a week on a ship like Götheborg in the late summer, slowly approaching the southern French coast.

The turquoise water, the sun and the dolphins all contribute to making this leg spectacular. If this sounds as irresistible to you as it does to us, then we just might have a match. And then you should hurry and try to lay your hands on one of the openings we have for deckhands, experienced or not. Looking forward!
