The East Indiaman Götheborg 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 in 1745. She was built in modern time using the tools and methods of the past. Since her maiden voyage to China in 2005-2007 the ship has carried out a total of nine expeditions around the world.

Today the East Indiaman Götheborg is a destination of historical interest in the city of Gothenburg, as well as a ship loaded with experiences. Here, visitors get to take part of everything from captivating stories and the tremendous art of shipbuilding, to knot-tying courses and culinary delights in a contemporary 18th century environment.

Guided tours are offered in both Swedish and English. A guided tour is about an hour long. After the tour, you can visit the gift shop ashore. The ship can also be booked for corporate or private events on board.
