Rent a yacht in Friesland without a boating license


A boat license is compulsory in the Netherlands for boats 15 metres or longer or with a speed higher than 20 km/hr. A boat license is thus not required for our yachts.

Naturally it is not wise to set off without any sailing experience and knowledge of the rules of navigation. If you have some experience, we will be happy to go on a short trial run before setting sail, after the instruction.

Rent a yacht without any sailing experience

If you do not have any sailing experience, there is an option for chartering one of our luxury motor yachts. We will book a skipper for you from the Schippersstarthulp sailing academy.

On the first day of your holiday you will have a sailing instructor on board who will teach you all the ins and outs of sailing in a relaxed manner. This will be combined with some interesting theory and knotting techniques. The instructor will speak to the entire ‘crew' so that everyone knows what is expected of him or her on board.

(Instructionday from 10AM till 3 PM will coast Euro 225,00.)
