Think about the Nertherlands or Friesland and your thoughts will turn automatically to water and panoramic landscapes. Our province of Friesland offers its visitors a unique region of wetlands and nature in abundance: in effect a paradise beyond compare for water sports enthusiasts. Its plentiful inland lakes are linked by canals, creating great opportunities for a diversity of journeys through the often unspoilt scenery.
It is possible to find moorings almost anywhere, as there are excellent berths both on lakesides and waterways. Picturesque towns and villages, well worth a visit - and often with historic buildings - are an invitation to visitors to stay for the night. Moreover, there are countless opportunities for shopping and - not least - for dining out at one of our many splendid restaurants.
All of this makes Friesland the ideal place for wide-ranging voyages taking in all this splendour from on board your own hired motorised yacht. If you have already 'done' Friesland once before, you could also discover new areas such as the Lauwersmeer man-made lake or the north-western part of Overijssel with its beautiful national park "De Weeribben" as well as towns ans villages such as Kalenberg, Blokzijl and Giethoorn (the Venice of the North).
Turfskip Yacht Charter is the right place to come for all these things. You can also be assured of a warm welcome at our base in Echtenerbrug, the ideal starting point for your sailing holiday. We are situated on the Tjeukemeer lake, the dividing line between the Frisian Lakes and the "De Weerribben-Wieden" National Park in the Province of Overijssel.
