Gotheborg is a replica of a vessel, owned by The Swedish East India Company, formed in 1731 in Gothenburg. The Swedish East India Company was trading tea, porcelain and silk in China. On the homeward voyage from China one of the Company's ships foundered in 1745. When almost in home-port, the ship ran aground on a well-known underwater rock. It rapidly took on water and sank.
