The damage can be paid by invoice. If the damage is over €500,- we will fill in a damage form together with you and this will be sent to the insurance company. The excess of €500,- can be paid by invoice.

  • It is also possible to buy off the excess, in which case you are fully insured for any damage resulting from sailing with the boat. The cost of buying off the excess is €50,- or 10% of the excess of the chosen boat. Intentionally causing damage to the rented boat or losing mooring ropes, inventory, fenders, etc. is not covered by the buy off of the excess.

    Here you have the possibility to unload the car at our loading and unloading place, after that you can park your car nearby.

  • Because our boat rental is in the middle of the village, we do not have our own parking spaces, so we have a loading and unloading area to bring your belongings to the boat. A little further on, within walking distance, are parking spaces, click here for the map with parking spaces.

  • When renting a sloop for a day or part of the day, you pay a fuel surcharge. You can return the boat after sailing without refuelling. If you rent a boat for longer than a day, you have to refuel the boat before returning it.

    When hiring a Valk or Falcon with outboard motor for one to three days, the fuel is included. After three days you need to refuel the boat before returning it.

    When renting a sailing yacht, you always have to refuel yourself. Refuelling can be done at our own petrol station.

  • No, lifejackets are not mandatory. As a skipper, you are legally responsible for the safety of your crew. When children are on board, we do recommend the use of a lifejacket.
