The barque Europa was built in Hamburg as a lightship in 1911 and was originally named Senator Brockes.
The ship served for the German Coast Guard until 1977.
In 1985, the remains of the ship were bought by a Dutch buyer, who sold it on to the current owner. The ship was converted into a sailing ship in Amsterdam and renamed Europa in 1994.
The steel-hulled barque serves as a training ship. The ship is used for long sea voyages, including Tall Ships races and sailing trips to Antarctica and the South Atlantic Ocean.
In addition to a crew of 16, there is room for a maximum of 48 trainees, called the voyage crew. The Europa was operated by Company Bark Europa in Rotterdam. The home port is Scheveningen.
