Welcome at Waterland!

Since 1985 we are a nautical family business in Monnickendam. Started with the charter of Dehler sailing yachts, we have grown into a leading nautical center. We charter day-boats, have a marina with more than 850 berths, a boat lift for yard work, yacht service for boat maintenance on our three locations and short-stay accommodation Slapen op de Haven.

Jachthaven Waterland

the full service harbour directly on the Gouwzee

Do you own a boat? We have the berth. We rent berths in the water for yachts – sailboat and motorboat – from 8 to 15 meters long. Electricity and water supplies are on the jetty. In winter we offer winter storage on our paved parking lot. Our site is full-service and our berth holders have an advantage. Read more about our harbour.

From Monnickendam you can charter J/Boats and Fox yachts. Since 1985 we have been known for our perfect sailing yachts. Whether you want to sail with family or a regatta, the choice is up to you. We have the suitable yacht for your day break. You can see our current fleet via Charter.

Waterland Monnickendam

Only 10 km from Amsterdam

The spacious green areas and reed beds give the harbor a unique character. We distinguish ourselves by our friendly and competent employees and service-oriented mentality. Your yacht is always in good hands with us. The high standard of the facilities and the various nautical companies at Jachthaven Waterland ensure that you can fully enjoy Monnickendam. The historic center is located 200m from the harbour.

Advantages for berth holders


Together makes the difference. That is why Waterland has a number of leading partnerships from which you as a berth holder can reap the benefits:

Marina Port Zélande. You can moor for free for 30 days in our sister marina! You only pay the tourist tax, registration for this goes via the harbour office.

Trans Europe Marinas. Planning a longer trip? Then don’t forget to register at the harbour office. Through our membership of this marina group, you get a 50% discount on the way at affiliated ports (France, Belgium, England, Germany, Scandinavia). That quickly saves a lot of money!

De IJsselmeerhavens – a unique partnership of Jachthaven Andijk, Marina Den Oever, Marina Makkum, Jachthaven Lelystad Haven, Marina Muiderzand, Marina Volendam and Jachthaven Waterland. Until the 2023 season, the card was active for saving for a free overnight stay. This can no longer be used from the 2024 season onwards. Follow De IJsselmeerhavens on the socials to stay informed.


Waterland Monnickendam was awarded the Blue Flag for the 20th time in 2024. This flag is a quality mark of the KMVK (Blue Flag International) and is a recognition of the efforts made by the marina in the field of environmental and sustainability management, safety, water quality, awareness raising and education, and waste prevention and sorting.

In 2013, Jachthaven Waterland was one of the frontrunners of the Green Pennant, an extra certification on top of the Blue Flag. You can earn this if you make extra efforts in the field of corporate social responsibility and take steps to make the harbour more sustainable. We have been awarded the green pennant every year since 2013.
