Sailing license & sailing course

You do not need a navigation licence to hire one of our yachts! Don't have a lot of sailing experience? Various sailing courses are available for people with little or no experience, varying from a couple of hours to a whole day. 

License and experience

You do not need a navigation license to rent one of our yachts! 

 In the Netherlands, a navigation licence is only obligatory if the vessel is longer than 15 metres or can travel faster than 20 km per hour. That is why you don't need a navigation license for our boats. 

We do recommend that you start your trip with some knowledge and experience on the water. Before you start the trip, we will tell you all about the technical details of the ship and start with a short trial.

Sailing course

Are you a skipper without any experience sailing motor yachts? In that case, we provides you with the opportunity to learn to optimally control your rental yacht from Yacht Charter Klompmaker in water-abundant Friesland in a couple of hours or one single day.

On the first day of your holiday, you will be accompanied on board by one of the experienced instructors. Together with you and your crew, they will navigate through one of the most beautiful parts of the Frisian lakes region. During the trip, you will intensively practice steering, berthing and mooring the ship, as well as passing bridges, etc.

For uninterrupted holiday fun and for the safety of all crew members, familiarity with the ship alone is not sufficient. Knowledge of a number of important nautical rules is also indispensable.

Once this day is over, you can be sure that you will be able to fully enjoy the remaining holidays on the water.
