Have you ever dreamt of owning your very own replica of a real viking ship? If you got 2.5 million Norwegian kroner (roughly $250,000 USD) to spend, this dream could come true!
The viking ship called “Åsa” is a true replica of the famous Oseberg Viking Ship. The replica was made in Latvia back in 2009, and has been in use since that time.
The current owner is now looking to sell Åsa, and is asking for 2,500,000 NOK for the viking ship replica.
The real Oseberg Ship is currently is storage, but was previously displayed at the Viking Ship Museum (which is closed for renovations until 2026).
Åsa is a fully functional ship
Despite being a replica, Åsa is fully functional, and is for all intents and purposes a real viking ship that can be used.
The ship has been rented out for weddings, movie shoots, birthday celebrations, viking themed events, and to corporations, so you could be looking at a nice income from renting out the ship.
Below is a short video of the ship in use:
The current owner recommends to bring at least 9 friends with you when picking up the viking ship. It has been successfully used by 5 experienced sailors, but he still recommends at least 10 sailors to operate the viking ship.

The owner told that he has gotten a lot of interested parties, but unfortunately very few that could actually afford to pay what he asks for the ship.
