- Material : Japanese cedar (The best wooden material for vessel)
- Made by : Director of Cheonghaejin Vessel Research Institute Gwang-Nam Ma

- As yet, no ships from the Silla Dynasty have been discovered in Korea, and it is therefore not possible to describe the exact shape of Changbogo trade vessel. Based on a wooden boat found in Anapji, Gyeongju-si, Gyeongbuk, a vessel from the Goryeo Dynasty (11th century) that was excavated in Eodu-ri, Yaksan-myeon, Wando, and records from Japan and China, the shape of this Silla-era vessel has been projected. Changbogo ship has been restored through a historical investigation by scholars.
- Changbogo sharp-bottomed trading vessel displayed here was designed for rapid voyage.
