Rent a boat at the number 1 boat rental site in the Netherlands
Renting a boat for a day or a boating holiday starts at HISWA Vakantievaren. All rental companies that rent boats through the Dutch boat rental site or the German Yachtcharter Holland website are affiliated with HISWA Association and therefore reliable partners. They use reliable and clear HISWA General Rental Conditions that have been coordinated with ANWB and Consumentenbond. So every boat you rent is well insured. Renting from a HISWA company means carefree sailing!
Half a millennium of maritime history has helped make the Dutch masters in yachtbuilding. The wealth of experience has enabled Holland to become global market leader in the production of superyachts and smaller (semi) custom built luxury yachts. Our premium quality yachts are designed and built to your own personal ideas and sail where others stop. Have a safe journey, relax and enjoy life on your unique Dutch luxury yacht. Why settle for anything less?
The HISWA Holland Yachting Group represents the world’s leading companies in the superyacht industry: people that combine heritage, stability and personality to create motor and sailing yachts of the highest quality. Here we give you a virtual introduction to our members and their stories, ambition and passion. All of them would be delighted to meet you in the real world too.
The Contest Brokerage division was formalised in 1995 since when the team has mediated more than 1,450 yacht sales took place. Contest brokerage is specialised in the sale of second hand Contest yachts and other high quality yachts, such as Hallberg Rassy, Najad, Nautor Swan, Oyster, Malö, Sweden yachts, etc.
Our experienced brokers are all certified under EMCI ISO 9001 and work individually with clients offering close personal care throughout the entire buying and selling process. From yacht selection and inspection to instruction, we advise and assist every step of the way. We help not just mediate but also assist with the formalities of survey, finance, registration, legal completion, then onward to delivery and beyond.
While we advise and act for clients with yachts located worldwide, we also have an increasing number of distant owners returning to our Medemblik base to gain the benefits of our full concierge sales service. Here in Holland, returning yachts can be refreshed and made ready for best presentation in either our heated 6,300m2 showroom and halls or on our pristine 4,000m2 hard standing that has 40 marina berths alongside for slipping and trials. That preparation for sale may include a simple valeting, polishing and antifouling or, for full optimisation, repairor refit of hull, interior, engineering or rig, all managed and completed onsite in the workshops of MYS, our Contest Group’s own yacht care division. With seller and buyer engaged, we can also assist with full professional services ranging through:
Customs and Excise
Then of course there’s delivery and that we help with, too, be it near or far, by truck or ship or under own sail – and for that we’ll even help find you the right crew.
So if you’re buying or selling, come and talk to us at Contest Brokerage!
