Visit the ship

Come on board the Götheborg! Learn about the history of the East India Companies and the adventures of the original Götheborg that sailed three times to Asia. Hear modern tales of sailing an 18th century ship, and about the exciting expedition to Asia.

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

Next to the ship you will find a shop where you can buy souvenirs from your visit. Welcome!

Sailing leg eleven

The Maltese Connection – Nice to Valletta

Heading South Once Again!
The Maltese Connection coming up

Götheborg will be leaving Nice on 6 October. Destination this time? Valletta, the smallest capital in the European Union. More importantly, the city is a World Heritage site and is often referred to as an open-air museum of, among other things, Baroque architecture.

This leg of our expedition, therefore, should be of certain interest to those who love not only to sail in the beautiful early Mediterranean autumn, but also have a thing for the wings of history. If that sounds like you, you may well be one of the deckhands we are looking for.

The Maltese Connection will see Götheborg sail past Corsica and Sardinia, before passing between Tunisia and Sicily. Upon arrival in Valletta, we will be warmly welcomed. It’s more than likely we will have experienced dolphins along the way to Götheborg’s southernmost destination during 2022.

Days sailing: 8 days
Days in port: 4 days

Sign on: Nice, 5 October 2022
Sign off: Valletta, 17 October 2022

Price: 12 700 SEK
