Swedish merchant ship Götheborg III

Recommended Posts

That's it, it's official!
After a few dying years and great uncertainties about its future, the replica of the Swedish merchant ship will go back to sea in the summer of 2020!!!!

It's a big news. On l'Hermione we are waiting for that.
Our dream would be to sail together, like the frigate escorted the merchant ship, that would be class!

The work of wintering will begin and the topmans of l'Hermione are already very much in demand to come and work there (a lot of rigging to be done) and of course to integrate the future navigation.

It makes me want to, but my life can't afford it. Maybe a LEG in 2020? To see.

Göthegorg / l'Hermione (replicas) :
Origin 1738 / 1779
Overall length 47.5m / 64m
Beam 10,84m / 11,86m
Air draft 47m / 46,5m
Sail area 1964m2 / 2100m2
Displacement 1232t / 2100t
Crew 80 / 80

The height of the Götheborg bridge is higher than l'Hermione, but l'Hermione remains a little larger and more powerful.

What a great piece of news !!!!

Hoping there'll be more and more types of 'ancient' ships rebuilt in the future.

'powerful' in terms of firepower and/or speed/acceleration ?

Powerful pour puissance dans la navigation, plus toilée, mieux taillée pour la course. C'est dns ce sens que je "veux" le dire, mais mon anglais... Si tu as mieux n'hésite pas !!!
