Overview

The East Indiaman Gotheborg is 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. The ship is a replica of the East Indiaman that sank outside the city of Gothenburg, year 1745. She is built in modern time with the tools and methods of the past. Since the virgin journey to China, year 2005-2007, the ship has carried out a total of nine expeditions around the world. Today the East Indiaman Gotheborg is a historical visitor’s destination in the city of Gothenburg and a ship full of experiences. Here, visitors get to know everything from captivating stories and the tremendous art of shipbuilding to knot courses and culinary delights in a contemporary 18th century environment. Welcome on board!

We attended the guided tour for this ship. The original ship actually sunk on its third voyage when it was about to reach its home harbor. The ship is constructed using the same methods and techniques as if it would be built around 1735.

Got the guided tour, very fun to hear both stories from the replica's 2005 tour to Shanghai and from the original tours hundreds of years ago. Knowledgable guides and a cool ship. I only wish they could still offer oppurtunities to sail with the ship!
