Crossing the border
with our Dehler 38
Depending on how long you book Huysman Yacht’s boat, you can sail to Belgium, France and even the UK. But Dutch waters are equally exciting.
Sailing in the Netherlands
Destinations (day trips)
- Veerse meer
- Hollands Diep
- Kanaal van Walcheren
- Kanaal van Hansweert
Our Dehler 38 is moored in the marina at Breskens. This Zeelandic Flanders village in the municipality of Sluis is a strategic base for exploring Dutch waters. You can take a day trip to Cadzand or Vlissingen.
A weekend trip will take you to the Westerschelde, Oosterschelde, Grevelingenmeer, Veerse Meer, Haringvliet and Hollands Diep. We cross the Westerschelde and sail through the sea lock up the Oosterschelde. Here you will discover a stunning nature reserve, with gentle currents and more protected waters. From there, we can sail to the picturesque and historic centre of Zierikzee where we can eat in one of the many restaurants and spend the night there. The next morning, we sail under the Zeeland Bridge, crossing to Wemeldinge and then down the Canal through Zuid-Beveland to get back to the Westerschelde. Three hours later we drop our anchor at Breskens again.
If you prefer a more tranquil trip, we can sail up the Canal through Walcheren to Veerse Meer, where we can discover the many little islands and moor in one of the small marinas, for some peace and quiet.
Sailing in Belgium
- Lower Zeeschelde
The marina of Breskens is a just a stone’s throw from the Belgian seaside. We recommend a day trip to Zeebrugge or along the Lower Zeeschelde. If you choose a midweek to Dunkirk (France) you also sail along Ostend or Nieuwpoort. Other options include a sailing trip to Antwerp or up the Oosterschelde.
Sailing to France
A midweek with our Dehler 38 will get you to Dunkirk, on the Belgian border. A picturesque town with a rich history that is definitely worth visiting. It takes approximately two days to sail to Dunkirk, with a stop in Ostend or Nieuwpoort.
Sailing to the UK
If you book a midweek, you can sail to Ramsgate or Dover. Yes, that’s right, you can sail to the UK and back in just a few days’ time! If you book the yacht for a week, we can even sail all the way to London. Destination: St Katharine Docks, the commercial docks on the north side of the Thames, to the east of the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. A unique experience that you’ll remember for the rest of your life!
