Information

Entrance and parking is free. Registration is necessary, you can register yourself at the bottom of this page. 

Kids and dogs are also welcome. 

During our Open Day there will be around 15 to 20 yachts to see, under construction, in refit and finished. They will be in the water, on the hard and inside the construction halls. There will be 10-15 nautic and lifestyle suppliers. If you get peckish or thirsty the catering staff will provide you with selected options (for your own costs).

Keep an eye on our social media and website for an update on the yachts for show and to find out who will give a lecture. 

We would love to see you on the 18th or 19th of September at the Stienplaat 7 in Makkum.

P.S. Sunday is the more quieter day.
