Set sail to the Benelux and beyond With thousands of kilometres of coastline, inland waterways, lakes, canals and rivers, the Benelux is a wonderfully water rich region. The Dutch and Belgian sea shores in particular have been popular for centuries, not only for naval transport but also for leisure yachtsmen, from novices to veterans.

While the summer is still far away, the beginning  of  the  year  is  the  perfect  time  to start mapping your vacation and select a boat that fits your favourite journey. If you already have a vessel for your voyage, then there are always new routes to take, innovative accessories to learn about and unexpected destinations to discover. Sports  like  water  and  jet  skiing,  wakeboarding, fishing and other nautical activities  are  also  well  represented  along  the Benelux seashores and waterways. Covering  all  these  aspects  are  two  major events happening this winter. First there is ‘boot  Dusseldorf’  in  late  January,  shortly followed by the Belgian Boat Show in February. For every maritime enthusiast these spectacular shows are not to be missed!
