In the year 1905 a special ship was launched in Hamburg and took its position in the Elbe Estuary: the lightship ELBE 2. For more than 70 years it withstood all weather conditions until it was removed from service. As the ship’s contour line resembles a sailing vessel a German owner could realize a dream in the early 80s: the ship was converted into an elegant three-masted barquentine and henceforth sailed with guests in Western Europe and the Caribbean under its new name ATLANTIS.
