I don’t know about you, but I have always wanted to have my own viking boat. I just couldn’t find someone to build one for me. The Viking Ship Museum now lets you order your own ship. These ships are custom built, so prices vary. The price also depends on the production method. But here are some ball park numbers:
- Skuldelev 6 (12 meters, 7 pair of oars and sail): €250,000 – €400,000
- The Large Gokstad: (10 meters, 6 pair of oars and sail): up to €160,000
- The Little Gokstad (6,5 meters, 2 pair of oars, sail): €33,000 – 53,000
Theses ships are not super cheap, but you do get something special for your money. Money might not buy happiness, but it can buy a viking ship, and that is not such a bad thing.
