Lightship 11 is the original name of this 1951 British Lightship, that is now docked in the heart of Rotterdam.
1951 Lightship 11 was built in Dartmouth (UK) and put into service as a mobile lighthouse on the south coast of wales.

1995 – 1999 She had 4 years of renovation in the Netherlands.
1999 – 2014 Back in action, she evolved into various maritime cafes & a Tapas restaurant.
