Have you rented a Campi 300 Houseboat in Brandenburg an der Havel with a 9,9 hp outboard motor? Then you find more information about the rental without a boating license below the page.

How does it work?

Before you leave, you will receive detailed instructions on board by one of our experienced employees. We do this on your boat, in our marina in Brandenburg an der Havel or in Röbel/Müritz. All of our instructors have a boating license themselves and know the river and the surrounding waters very well.

The instruction is given according to a fixed protocol: we discuss the desired behavior on the boat, the rules on the water and technical information about the boat. During the instruction there is enough time to ask extra questions.

The costs for a Charterschein are € 70 in Brandenburg an der Havel for our motorboats and € 85 in Röbel/Müritz.


Boat type:

The Charterschein applies to boats that are a maximum of 15 meters long and can reach a maximum speed of 12 kilometers (~ 7.5 miles) per hour. In addition, a maximum of 12 passengers is allowed on the boat. All of our boats at both locations, Brandenburg an der Havel and Röbel/Müritz, meet these requirements.

Certain waters in Brandenburg:

You are allowed to sail on different waters with a Charterschein. From our marina in Brandenburg you can sail about 100 kilometers over the main river of Brandenburg: the Untere Havel-Wasserstrasse. Moreover, the license is also valid for various tributaries: the Beetzsee-Riewendsee-WasserstrasseRathenower Havel and Hohennauwer Wasserstrasse.
