The Sula Lightship has been lovingly restored and renovated to an incredibly high standard to make your time aboard as comfortable as possible.
LV14 SULA is a nationally registered historic Lightvessel commissioned by the Humber Conservancy Board in 1959. Originally named SPURN; she was stationed on the Humber Estuary to protect mariners for 26 years, until being decommissioned in 1985 and replaced by a navigational buoy.
Over the past 12 years, LV14 has become a defining landmark at Gloucester Docks. The vessel continues to undergo an incredible transformation by her owners, the Brooks Family, who purchased her as a retirement project in February 2020.
SULA’s unique Fresnel lens was brought back to life on 5 November 2020 and illuminated the sky for the first time in over 20 years. Further restoration continues…
