"Götheborg" - Sailing ship

Ambassador of the Swedish economy

It’s not easy building an 18th century ship in full 1:1 scale without any of the original drawings. And using the tools, building methods and materials of the 18th century doesn’t make it any easier. And as well as all that, the ship must of course also fulfil modern safety requirements. But crazy dreams sometimes grow wings and take flight. Particularly when there are a great many genuine enthusiasts involved, wonderful inventiveness, kind donations, patient sponsors and a never-ceasing interest from a city and a world longing for wonders. Today the Swedish Ship Götheborg is very much a reality, and the largest sailing wooden ship in the world. Totally unique, and an arena for showing Sweden’s cultural and business life to the world.
