Beauty of Friesland

Friesland is a beautiful province of Holland. Many people are unaware of what Friesland has to offer!

There are nice canals that you can sail by boat, many different routes.  An example of a famous route is the; Elfstedentocht (eleven City tour). This route goes true through eleven cities in Friesland. You can visit every city at your own tempo.

Also the "turfroute" is very nice. The distance between nature is minimal in this route. You can cruise
quietly true small canals and just enjoy nature. Also in this route are a few nice towns. You can visit these and find out how cozy Friesland can be!

Usefull information

No license required!

To rent one of our ships you don't need a boat license. This doesn't mean that we give our boats simply away. We give detailed instructions how everything works. Also it is possible to take lessons. You learn everything of the boat you have rented. These lessons are not only fun, it is also more relaxing to sail if you have never sailed a boat before. 

Renting: many options

Our changeover days are Monday and Friday. Departure at 15.00 and arival at 9.00 hour. You can rent a boat for one week, a weekend, a short week or a combination of these.

Quality and certainty

We are a member of de respected brancheorganisation HIWSA. That means dat we can assure you the highest quality. We can inform you about wonderful routes and
places of interest. The documentation on board is compleet en tuned to the specific ship.

Payment in terms

Half of the rental fee need to be payed by reservation. The other half must be payed 14 days before the departure.

All-risk insurance and deposit

All our ships are all-risk insured, so no worries. The deposit for vessels < 11.50 m with the exeption of "the Ruyter" is € 500,- | 11.00 t/m 13.50 m € 750,- | > 13.50 m € 1000,-. This is also your own risk in case of any damage to the ship. If there is no damage the deposit will be returned to the renter. There is also the possibility to buy off the deposit. The insurance deposit is < 10 m € 50, > 10 m € 85. In this case the risk of damage lays on our side again.

Fuel need to be payed by the renter. After arrival we fill up the ship. The cleaning is also taking care of by our own company.
