About Hindeloopen-Stavoren

Our Hindeloopen-Stavoren base is split across two marinas with our larger boats (Horizon 5, Horizon 4, Vision 4 and Vision 3) departing from and returning to our marina in Stavoren and the rest of our Dutch fleet from/to our marina in Hindeloopen. Please ensure you travel to the correct marina according to the type of boat you have booked. 

The towns of Hindeoopen and Stavoren are very similar in size and character and are an equal cruising distance to the waterway intersection that leads to the rest of the Friesland region.

Hindeloopen-Stavoren is located in Friesland, a rural, traditional and culturally rich region of the Netherlands. Famous for its lakes and water sports, life is slower-paced in these parts and well suited for those wishing to escape the hustle-bustle and breathe a little! Hindeloopen itself is on the shores of the IJsselmeer with a long maritime history, quirky cobbled streets and ranked as one of Europe’s most beautiful villages.

From Hindeloopen-Stavoren it is:

  • 29hrs (12 locks, 11 lifting bridges) to our base in Vinkeveen
