Getaway with friends

As soon as you step on board you will feel it: freedom. Leave your current life onshore and sail with your friends into the beautiful meadow nature. Looking for a bit more excitement? Then sail towards the bustling cities surrounding our marinas, such as Leeuwarden, Groningen, or Berlin. In the meantime, enjoy hanging out together on one of our spacious boats while enjoying some snacks and drinks. Life is good!

The boats

Our spacious boats are suitable for groups of up to 14 people. These larger boats also have several cabins, so you can decide how much privacy you want. The Impression 1400 for example, is suitable for 14 people and has separate 7 cabins. These larger boats also have several toilets and showers on board. 

Many of our ships have a large aft deck, where everyone can sit comfortably and enjoy a snack and a drink. Refrigerators are available and you can bring as much food and drinks as you want. 

Does your family prefer to sail multiple boats at the same time? That is possible as well. For more information and multiple boats discounts, please contact us.


You can book a sailing holiday from our marinas in Drachten (Friesland, the Netherlands) or Brandenburg (Berlin, Germany). Nice cities to visit in the Drachten area are Lemmer, Sneek, Leeuwarden and Groningen. Do you have sufficient sailing experience and is the weather  stable? Then you can even sail to Amsterdam, across the IJsselmeer. 

From our marina in Brandenburg you can sail for example beautiful routes to visit Berlin and Potsdam. More information about shipping routes can be found here.

Boating license & skipper training

You do not need a boating license to rent our boats. Also, you will find plenty of beautiful license-free sailing routes in the vicinity of our marinas in Drachten (Friesland) and Brandenburg (Berlin, Germany). Does none of your group of friends have sailing experience and would you like to gain some experience before sailing off? In that case, we would advise you to have at least one person in the group do a skipper training in advance. This is of course also possible if you have already sailed before, but would like to gain some extra experience. More information about the skipper training can be found here.
