If you are interested in spending a day on the water and renting a sloop, all you have to do is contact boat owners with availabilities on Click&Boat.
A sloop is a small wooden motor boat, either powered by fuel or electricity. In the Netherlands, sloops and other small boats are very popular. If you rent a sloop in the Netherlands, you can easily navigate on your own, or with your friends and family, through the many canals and rivers this beautiful country has to offer. It is possible to rent a sloop relatively cheaply, and depending on the size of the boat, the price of renting a sloop in the Netherlands can be as low as €20 per person, per day.
Sloops are typically Dutch, and the Netherlands offer a variety of sloops to charter in this destination:
You can rent a sloop for very little in the Netherlands! Boats may be offered for charter by the hour, by the day, for half a week, for the weekend or even for a whole week. For weekly rentals, exchange days are often on Fridays and Sundays.
Yes, you can! You don't need a boating license if the length of the boat is less than 15 meters, and the maximum speed is up to 20 km per hour, which happens to be the case for all sloops in the Netherlands.
There are two types of sailing licenses in the Netherlands.
Given the small size of a sloop, and the fact that this type of boat sails very slowly, you will not need a license to sail it. Have you never driven a motorboat before? It is not a problem if you haven't! A sloop is very easy to maneuver. Before departure, the boat owner will give you a short explanation and/or demonstration. This way, you can set off on your own safely, full of confidence and freedom!
Another option is to charter a yacht with a skipper on board! This is a great solution if you want to enjoy the view, have a snack or even drink on board without any stress. In addition, an experienced skipper also knows all the best places and hidden corners in your chosen sailing area. He or she will be able to guide you through the most beautiful canals and waters in the Netherlands.
Renting a sloop or sloep in the Netherlands, is undoubtedly the ideal way to spend a wonderful day on the water. Especially during the hot summer days! You will be free to go wherever you want: enjoy the beautiful views, the wind in your hair, a snack and drink on board, and the sense of freedom that only sailing brings!
There are beautiful sailing routes spread across various destinations in the Netherlands. You can easily explore the canals of Amsterdam by the means of a sloop. But you can also enjoy nature on the Biesbosch on board your boat, or spend a day on the Vinkeveense or the Loosdrechtse plassen. Other nature reserves or water sports areas ideal for a day sail are the Veerse Meer, the Alden Feanen, the Vecht and the Linge.
