About us

We have been renting out our boats from our marina in Drachten (Friesland) for more than 35 years: from romantic small sloops to luxury yachts for large groups. In 2008, we decided to also start a marina in the beautiful north-German town of Brandenburg an der Havel, so that we could offer our customers a great sailing holiday there too.

Meanwhile, hundreds of customers sail a “De Drait” boat every year, and we do everything we can to give our customers an unforgettable experience. We love the profession, and that’s why we can’t help keeping everything in our own hands: from building and maintaining the boats, to the sailing instructions for our customers.

Year after year, many loyal customers from all over Europe keep finding their way back to us. And we are extremely proud of that.

Other activities

Our passion for water sports goes beyond renting out boats. In addition to Yachtcharter de Drait, our company consists also of the subsidiaries Drait Yachts and Jachthaven de Drait:

Construction, purchase, sale and brokerage of boats

Drait Yachts

Have you rented a boat a number of times and are you now completely devoted to boating? We totally understand that. With Drait Yachts, we advise people who want to invest in their own boat. Where possible, we make an offer out of our collection of new and second-hand boats. In addition, we help boat owners who want to sell their own boat through yacht brokerage.

Storage and maintenance of boats

Jachthaven de Drait

With Jachthaven de Drait, we help boat owners store and maintain their boats. We do that by providing more than 500+ berths and a winter storage. In addition, our specialized and experienced boating engineers help boat owners to maintain their boat and fix possible technical problems.
