Bark Europa

The EUROPA was built in 1911 under the name of “Senator Brockes” at the Stulcken shipyard in Hamburg, at the request of the city of Hamburg. The ship was put into service as Elbe 3 lightship on the river Elbe, and later worked as a stand-by vessel. In 1986 the ship was brought to the Netherlands. Over a period of 8 years, she was completely rebuilt and rigged as a three-masted bark.
The rebuilding and conversion to a sailing vessel was carried out under the supervision of the Dutch Shipping Inspection, Bureau Veritas and Register Holland. She sails with worldwide certificates from each of these authorities and she complies with the highest requirements for sailing ships.

The Bark has four 2-person cabins, four 4-person cabins and four 6-person cabins (60 passenger). The classic romantic bunks are very comfortable. All cabins are provided with ensuite shower and toilet. There are 12 cabins, of which four are 2 person cabins, four are 4-person cabins and four are 6 person cabins. Every bunk has its own sheet, duvet and covers. You do not have to bring your own sleeping bags. Towels will be provided too.
