In denmark and Norway we are churning out viking ship copies so often that it's almost boring. Anyway, the Oseberg ship was a trading vessel, a "Knarr" - not a war ship. And this paricular one has been copied many times, and copies have crossed the North sea, the atlantic and even circumnaviated the world...
And since a knarr is not a war ship it is not technically a viking ship. But of course some vikings used a Knarr now and then... http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=GxOSqSUgNzE&feature=endscreen

The "draken" class on the other hand is a "viking" ship. And here is the draken "Harald Hårfagre": http://dno.vikingkings.com/
