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.

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.
