The foundation Oseberg Vikingarv has also build a copy of another famous Viking discovery: The Klåstad ship. The original ship is located at The Slottsfjell Museum. The ship named Saga Farmann was launched at the harbour of Tønsberg in September 2018.

In 2021, the construction of an archaeological replica of the Gokstad ship also started. The construction will take place both at Vikingodden in Tønsberg and by the Whaling Monument in Sandefjord. Here you have the opportunity to join and build ships with the Vikings' tools.
