It measurements were; Length 70.00m, breadth 11.50m, draught 4.80m, displacement 1,400 tons, sail area 1,150 m2 and had a crew of 133 sailors and 300 soldiers.On its maiden voyage in 1628, the Wasa sank in the Stockholm harbour. The Vasa (or Wasa) is a Swedish warship built between 1626 and 1628. She was built on the orders of the King of Sweden, Gustavus Adolphus as part of the military expansion he initiated in a war with Poland-Lithuania (16211629). Richly decorated as a symbol of the king's ambitions for Sweden and himself, upon completion she was one of the most powerfully armed vessels in the world.
However, Vasa was dangerously unstable and top-heavy with too much weight in the upper structure of the hull. Despite this lack of stability she was ordered to sea and foundered only a few minutes after encountering a wind stronger than a breeze. She was salvaged in 1961, with a largely intact hull, and was housed in a temporary museum called Wasavarvet ("The Wasa Shipyard") until 1988 before being moved moved to the Vasa Museum in Stockholm.
