According to Dutch law, a navigating licence is required only for boats longer than 15 m or faster than 20 km/h. This applies to none of our craft. With only a little practise, you will be able to control your boat quite easily.
To start your holiday afloat relaxed and with the important knowledge at hand, we advise unexperienced guests to order a 2- or 3-hours skipper training, as well. If you decide not to book the skipper training, then we expect you to take the time to practise the most important maneouvres with your crew. The employees of Centerpoint Charters will be glad to help you if needed, you may ask for a short and free of charge tutorial.
Merely for our biggest boats, the Ilse, Fantasy, Jive, Jazz, Rhapsody, Maestro, Tango and Aqua Cosmos, a certain amount of boating experience is indispensable. To hire those big boats without any boating experience you will have to follow a 1,5 day-instruction at a specialized boating school nearby Sneek.
