A ship can change name and flag state through time, but the IMO number remains the same through the hull's entire lifetime. As a result, it can be useful to identify a ship by using the IMO number.
Barken Viking is a locally famous ship in Gothenburg called Viking (but it's usually referred to as Barken Viking even though Bark is the ship type and not a part of its name). The ship was used for cargo (wheat etc.), and it was originally built in Denmark around 1907. Actually the ship is moored at Lilla Bommen where it is likely to stay for a very long time because its masts are higher than one of the bridges (Älvsborgsbron, 45m, built in 1966) that it needed to pass to reach the ocean. The ship used to house a school for maritime chefs but today it is used as a hotel, restaurant and conference center.
