Our Story

Good stories are worth hearing again, particularly the story of the Swedish Ship Götheborg. The wealthy Svenska Ostindiska Companiet (Swedish East India Company) was formed in 1731 and ceased trading in 1813. Just over 175 years later, the story of the company and the ship are being retold. And it is certainly a dramatic story, largely thanks to the fact that the original Götheborg rather embarrassingly ran aground outside Gothenburg harbour in 1745. Twenty-one adventurous years would pass between the first dives to the wreck in 1984 and the maiden voyage to China. Years of courage and determination. But above all of great heart and commitment, from people who believed in the grand dream. The dream which came true, a story worth telling.
