Sailing trip in Belgium

Yacht rental in Belgium is easy with Sailica. We will help to take into account all the nuances of yachting in Belgium and rent a yacht at a favorable price. If you can’t manage the yacht yourself, it is possible to rent a yacht with a skipper.

Yacht rental in Belgium

Belgium is located in the heart of Europe. It is washed by the English Channel with many sailing and motor yachts. Belgium has the largest port in Europe — Newport.

  • The main difference between Belgium and other yacht resorts is the proximity of the European countries along the sea routes. In Belgium, you can go on a yacht trip to the UK, Scotland, or France. For example, a route might look like this: Newport (Belgium) — Dunkerque (France) — Dover (England) — Ramsgate (England) — Harwich (England). Another option for a yacht tour: Zeebruges (Belgium) — Vlissingen (Netherlands) — Veerse Meer (Netherlands) — Breskens (Netherlands) — Zeebrugge (Belgium).
  • Belgium is for those who don’t like tropical climate. During the yachting season, which lasts from May to September, the air temperature doesn’t rise above 22 °C, and the water doesn’t exceed 18 °C.
  • The coastline of Belgium is small, there are almost no natural harbors. But in many coastal cities (Brussels, Ostend, Antwerp, Zeebrugge) there are ports, yacht clubs and services for yacht rental, cleaning and repairing.
  • Every year in the city of Dinan there’s an unusual regatta called the International Bath Regatta. The main rule of the regatta is to make a creative swimming tool. A bath tube should be a part of it. The use of engines is prohibited.

Routes in Belgium

The price of renting a yacht in Belgium is often rather big, but the nature, architecture and color of this country justify the cost.

There are no special rules for yacht rental in Belgium, but it is forbidden to sail at night and to exceed the speed of 9 km/h. The best resorts for yacht charter are on the North Sea coast: Zeebrugge, Knokke-Heist, De Haan, De Panne, Blankenberg.

Zeebrugge

  • Large harbor and port.
  • Railway communication with European countries.
  • Huge fish market.
  • Seafront Park, where you can learn about the history of the port and the life of fishermen, as well as take a look at some old boats.

Knokke-Heist

  • Pine groves.
  • 12 meter long beach.
  • Zwin natural park with rare species of birds.
  • Clear sea.
  • Great place for diving.

De Haan

  • Quiet town without many tourists.
  • The cleanest beaches in Belgium.
  • Many restaurants and bars on the coast.

De Panne

  • The historic center with old architecture.
  • Westhoek Sand Dune Park.
  • Water suitable for surfing.

Blankenberg

  • Large port and convenient harbor.
  • Active nightlife.
  • The main festival of the country takes place here — an exhibition of sand sculpture.

The flow of tourists in Belgium (as in the very heart of Europe) almost never weakens. This small country has everything you can wish for — historical, architectural and natural attractions, interesting local traditions and coloring, world-famous chocolate and beer, and many other things.

The climate in Belgium is temperate, oceanic, which is typical of most countries of Western Europe in the region. Rains are frequent enough both in summer and in winter, there are almost no sudden temperature changes. It’s worth mentioning that Belgium is not a country of the beach holiday, so this country shouldn’t be that hot.

Full recommendation. Great service & support. We chartered a Beneteau 45 in Athens for our trip around Peloponnes. Great service and perfect customer support from beginning to the end. Due to corona we had to postpone our trip - Sailica managed all the communication with the charter agency and negotiated a great new deal for us. This was already the 2nd time we charted with Sailica and it won't be the last time. Full recommendation

I took Dufour Grand Large 560 at Croatia using online yacht rental service sailica.com It's easy to use their mobile app with fair prices and enough quantity of boats which suits to my parameters. Their managers assisted me through whole communication with charter company. It was pleasant to receive a small gift – free of charge transfer from airport to marina. We didn't request it and appreciate their overexpected level of service.

Amazing 1 week in Turkey! I sailed with Sailica on a tour in the gulf of Fethiye in Turkey. Overall it was a great experience and a great crew, even if I did not know them before. The area is amazingly beautiful and if you go in April you can avoid the crowds. The skipper was very proficient and knew what he was doing. Highly recommended!

Great company! The guys answered all our questions which were very important since it was our first sailing experience. Moreover, they advised us not only on a charter but also on the tour itself. This was not the responsibility of the company, but we needed help and the company managers helped us for free. I highly recommend the team. The guys are really reliable, proactive and customer-oriented.

Excellent trip to Croatia! The trip was organized on an excellent level since the very beginning - from the yacht search to the trip itself. The team was fast and responsive. Highly recommended to everyone who wants to hang out with family on a beautiful yacht or catamaran!

Super Beratung - sehr schnell wurde für mich ein passendes Boot in der Türkei gefunden. Sehr guter Preis, und ich konnte einen Skipper aussuchen, den ich bereits vom letzten Mal kannte. Volle Empfehlung!
