The Netherlands by boat: which routes to take?

What better plan than to charter a yacht to explore the wonders of the Netherlands? There are numerous boating areas in the country, all surrounded by simply stunning natural scenery. Are you ready to set sail? The options are endless!


  • Amsterdam

Ideal to charter a yacht, the capital of the Netherlands hides treasures at every turn.

While cruising along the centuries-old canals, you can choose to dock on the banks and stop for a drink at one of the many typical restaurants that line the canals: absolutely fascinating!

In Amsterdam, you have the possibility to hire a boat without a license, so you can enjoy wonderful moments with your fellow travelers.



  • Friesland: Wadden Lakes, IJsselmeer and the Wadden Sea

A former region of the Netherlands on the shores of the North Sea, Friesland (or Frisia), is rich with fascinating waterways, ancient villages and meadows. Ideal for long nature walks, cycling or sailing, hiring a boat here is a great option.

The region's numerous canals and river connections will allow you to reach almost any town of interest. Do you plan to sail on the Wadden Sea (also known as the Waddenmeer)? Beware of the tides! Navigating this area with the help of a skipper on board is always helpful to avoid unpleasant inconveniences and follow the best routes in the area.


  • Zeland: Zeeland Lakes, North Sea

Popular sailing destination in the region, Zeeland is one of the best places to rent a boat in the Netherlands. Enjoy an adventurous trip and collect unforgettable moments in the company of friends or family.

Contact the owner of the boat of your dreams and ask for all the necessary information about the area: together, you can plan a trip full of surprises!

Do I need a boat/sailing license to hire a boat in the Netherlands?


When it comes to regulations in the Netherlands, there are three options:

  • No license is required: if the boat is less than 15 meters and the maximum speed is 20 km per hour;
  • Klein Vaarbewijs 1: this license is required for boats traveling at more than 20 km per hour on rivers, canals and lakes;
  • Small Vaarbewijs 2: allows sailing on the open sea and large inland waters such as the Oosterschelde and Westerschade estuaries, the IJsselmeer and the Waddenzee.


Is it possible to charter a yacht without a license?

The answer is yes. In most cases, especially in the case of boats rented by the hour, it is possible to request a motorboat without a license.

Before departure, the boat owner will give you a detailed explanation of the boat itself and the surroundings, as well as advice on the best mooring areas and tourist sites not to be missed.

If you are inexperienced, or still do not feel comfortable on board, you can request the presence of a skipper, or inquire about some theory and practice courses, so that you can steer the helm on board during your next vacation.

When it comes to sailboats, experience is necessary and should be demonstrated, as steering the boat itself can be more complex and risky, depending on the winds.
