Why sail with Yachtcharter de Drait?

We develop, build and maintain our beautiful ships and boats in our own shipyard in Drachten. We’ve been doing this for more than 35 years, and we are extremely proud of that. Because we love the profession, we do everything ourselves: from the maintenance of the boats to the cleaning and sailing instructions (in Dutch, English and German). So, in short: we put everything in place to make your boating holiday an experience you will never forget.
