Yacht Havens are delighted to announce the purchase of the beautiful Jachthaven Biesbosch in Drimmelen, Holland.
We will be publishing more news and images of the marina over the coming months, but we naturally wanted to be the first to congratulate the team at Jachthaven Biesbosch on joining the Yacht Havens family.
We are pleased to invite you, our berth holders, to explore the wonderful waterways of Holland, with your new group member as the ultimate destination. You will see at a glance on Google maps here that Holland is surprisingly accessible as a cruising location from our East coast marina at Fambridge.
The marina itself is in a location renowned for its year-round activities. First-class boating facilities sit comfortably alongside welcoming water-terrace restaurants and the marina is particularly good at giving its customers an air of being looked after. The whole area is renowned for its friendly, laid-back atmosphere and is located adjacent to the beautiful nature reserve of the Biesbosch National Park. The reserve is famous for reintroducing beavers to its creeks and over 100 lodges can be found along the waterways. Kingfishers and sea eagles dwell among the adventurous maze of rivers, reservoirs, willow forests and jagged coves of crystal clear water.
Hiking, boating, canoeing, biking, fishing, bird-watching, horse-riding, and swimming are just some of the excursions available throughout the year. Bird walks, bike rides, boating trips and hiking excursions are offered through the visitor centres in Drimmelen and the nearest city, Dordrecht. If you would like to combine the tranquillity of nature with the bustle of the city, Dordrecht is a 30-minute drive away with its historic centre, cafés and terraces. As an area rich in new delights to explore, we believe Holland is the place to visit this summer.
Practical considerations will no doubt include provisioning, and we are pleased to inform berth holders that an order for fresh bread can be placed at the fuel dock, and a full range of provisions can ordered for delivery from Albert Heijn in Made (www.ah-made.nl/route). Orders received before 12:00 hours will be delivered to the Marina at 19:00 hours. Ask at the Marina Office for details on your arrival.
We have identified an excellent and informative guide to the Waterways of the Netherlands, one of Tom Sommers’ highly regarded EuroCanals Guides, which can be downloaded for just under £12.50 here.
We have just launched this new website for Jachthaven Biesbosch and if you're keen to find out more take a look around the site www.jachthavenbiesbosch.nl.
We very much look forward to welcoming you to our new marina and to posting further news about all the developments as they occur.
