Book extra items and services

To make your boating holiday even more fun, completer and easier, you can book several extra things and services with us. A bicycle for example, if you would like to explore parts of the area cycling instead of sailing. Or dinghies and canoes, which you can use to discover beautiful little rivers and canals. Request extras for your boating holiday? Then make use of this fill-in form, which you can open by clicking on the button below.

Some of the items depend on where you booked your boat – in Drachten (Friesland, NL) or Brandenburg (DE):
