17th century Swedish ship The WASA, a royal Swedish vessel with 64 guns sank in the waters around
Stockholm on the day it was launched (10 August 1628) as the result of a violent
gust of wind. The ship settled in 35 m of water. Construction on the vessel started
in 1625, under the direction of the Dutch architect Henrik Hybertsson. While some
guns and a few other objects had been recovered earlier, it was only possible to
bring the ship to the surface in 1956. Partially rebuilt and restored, the WASA
was installed in the Wasa Museum in Stockholm in 1958.Our reproduction of
the WASA is based on the excellent graphic reproductions published by the
Board of the Museum.
