Information yacht rental

JHP Jachtverhuur is located in the middle of Friesland, between Heerenveen and Akkrum. From our home port, the Sneekermeer is about 1 hour by boat from us.

If you are going to rent a boat from us, you do not need a license. The sailing area concerns Friesland and the head of Overijssel.

 

POWER ON BOARD OUR RENTAL BOATS:

On board the rental boat is a 12 Volt electricity system with 'cigarette lighter' connections. There is also a (light) inverter for charging your mobile phones / laptop / tablet, etc. A coffee maker can only work if you connect the shore power cable (for example, in one of the many marinas in Friesland).

It is not necessarily necessary to dock the ship in a marina. The starter battery is separate from the consumer battery, so you do not have to worry about whether there is still enough 'power'. With normal use you can rest still for 5 days without worrying that the consumer battery is empty.

 

WATER ON BOARD OUR RENTAL BOATS:

The water tank is full when you leave with us. Normally a full tank is just / just not enough for 1 week. If the tank is empty, turn off the "water pump" switch. You can refill the tank in a marina and turn the switch on again.

 

DIESEL ON BOARD OUR RENTAL BOATS:

The diesel tank is full when you leave us. Our engines use an average of 1.6 to 2 liters per sailing hour. The tank capacity is 250 liters. On average, our customers refuel on return + / _ 70 liters per week. You can refuel the diesel with us and we will settle this with your deposit amount.

 

YOUR CAR:

You can park your car on our site free of charge. We live in the harbor, the only access is through our driveway.

 

BRIDGE CONTROL:

Not every bridge has a bridge keeper. A bridge keeper sometimes serves several
bridges, also at a distance. He does this with the help of cameras.
If a bridge is operated remotely, make sure you have your ship within it
range of the cameras. This way the bridge keeper can see if there are any ships
who want to cross the bridge.
