Looking down into the Oseberg, you can see the deck, gangway, rudder/tiller, a bailing bucket, and 15 pairs of oar holes. The mast itself held a single sail measuring 968 square feet (90 square meters), meaning that the boat could have reached speeds of more than ten knots. The ship itself measures a little over 70 feet (21.5 meters) in length and about 16 feet (five meters) in width.
