Sailing with a sloop through Friesland means enjoying your day to the fullest. Whether you want to spend a weekend away with your partner, or you are looking for a special day out with your group of friends, family or colleagues: rent a sloop and you are sorted. Did you know that you don’t need a boating license for sailing our sloop in the Netherlands?

Advantages of our sloops

All our sloops are easy to operate, because they are equipped with a bow thruster, which makes mooring very easy. Depending on the type of sloop you choose, our Campingsloep and SloepCabin are equipped with a toilet, refrigerator, hob, sink and even a double bed in the bow. The spacious lay out of our open sloops make it even possible to sail with groups from two up to twelve people. In this way you can make it as cosy as you want.

Which type of sloop suits you needs?

From our marina in Drachten (in Friesland, the northern part of the Netherlands with its beautiful lakes and waters) we rent out 14 sloops in 4 different types:

Our traditional DrachtsterSloep 750 is the ideal sloop for a day out with friends, family or another group. This sloop is for a day tour suitable up to twelve people. Do you want to rent this sloop with more comfort? Then choose the CampingSloep. This sloop is equipped with a refrigerator, toilet, sink, stove and a double bed in the bow. Do you want to sail multiple days? Then the Drait Vlet 650 or SloepCabin is ideal. These sloops are suitable during the day for a maximum of 4 up to 6 people and they also have a double bed in the bow, a sink, hob, toilet and refrigerator.
