Storage on hard surface

Winter 2023/2024 we will start with winter storage at the yard at Marina Volendam (Strandweg 2). We can have approximately 150 ships in winter storage at this location. The boats will be stored on the hard paved terrain. With our mast crane we can safely hoist and lower the mast if this is necessary for winter storage. Storage of the mast in the mast rack is also possible. Have you already booked winter storage for the Waterland location and would you like to change locations? Please contact us.

Book winter storage

When you fill in the reservation form completely and send it/email it to, we will schedule the crane appointment. We crane on weekdays from October 16 onwards. We crane ships of up to 17 tons and process the winter storage in order of arrival. When Volendam is full, we can still accommodate ships up to 10 tons at the Hemmeland location in Monnickendam.

When the mast needs to be craned, this will be done during the hoisting appointment, so make sure the mast is prepared for lowering (sails off, boom off, tensioners loosened). The jet wash is done on the crane track by a Waterland employee and is included in the price.
Payment of the winter storage takes place in two installments: the first installment upon confirmation and the second installment 1 week before the crane date. When the bill is not paid, there is no (re)launch.
The system is: last out, first in. Lift out late in November? Then you also have to be the first to be ready to go into the water.


When maintenance is required on the ship, this can be carried out by the companies known to us (Jachtservice de Waterman, Robie Nautical, Halver Sails). You can contact them yourself or fill in the service form on our website and Waterland will take care of the works. Have you found another company for maintenance? Report this to us and have the company come by to complete the RI&E form. This way you are not liable in case of damage.

Tips for winter preparation

Winter storage differs from summer storage. The boat must be well prepared so that no damage occurs in the winter. Think of removing the sails, the cushions from the boat, preparing the engine and drinking water system for winter.
