Welcome to Marina Stavoren, Inner Harbour
Marina Stavoren Inner Harbour is situated at a unique location: between the IJsselmeer and the Frisian lakes. The IJsselmeer is at walking distance just like Stavoren, one of the so called ‘Eleven cities’ of Frisia and in former times, also a Hanseatic city. For visiting yachts as well as for holders of a long-term berth, this marina has lots of facilities for a pleasant stay with the entire family.
The cruising area
Marina Stavoren Inner Harbour is located in a large cruising area. This is one of the reasons why it is so popular as a starting base for boat trips. Because of the second lock the waiting times for the passage has been reduced greatly. A sailing trip to the Wadden Islands (UNESCO natural heritage!) or a day trip to the other side of the IJsselmeer, like Enkhuizen or Medemblik, is well within a convenient day cruising range. However there is always the equally fine option of sailing to the Frisian lakes. There you’ll find charming little towns and villages like Heeg, Woudsend, IJlst or Sneek.
Marina Stavoren Inner harbour has many excellent facilities for ship and crew. Most of them, such as the sanitary rooms, the indoor swimming pool or our new indoor playground are free of charge.
All berths have their individual power connection and fresh water supply. A fuel station and a pumping station for bilge water or waste-holding tanks are located near the harbour office. The sanitary facilities consist of two buildings. Parking space for your car is available on the premises of the harbour, too, with security surveillance.
Other available facilities are: a water sports shop with a super market section, a laundrette, a small fitness room, various outdoor playground features, winter storage area and a very well equipped Yachtservice & Refit department . At walking distance to Marina Stavoren Outer harbour you’ll find Beach Pavilion De Potvis. Indulgence is key over there: as in the spectacular views over the IJsselmeer as well as the delicious food. Lunch, drinks, snacks, coffee or diner: anything is possible here.
You and your family and / or friends are very welcome at our harbour, be that as visitor or as holder of a long-term berth.
