No licence required

The catamaran-principle ensures a very stable surface-area and little depth. Consequently, our crafts are solid, yet agile and easily manoevrable at the same time. The quiet outboard motors only reach a maximum speed of 6 -7 km/h, rendering a licence dispensable. The skipper must be at least 18 years of age and has to respect the intoxication laws as they apply to public traffic regulations.

Wining & dining

You are free to bring your own treats aboard VlotGent. A delicious alternative is ordering directly from one of the many restaurants, caterers or bars in Ghent. Have a look at our suggestions and order directly from the restaurants. Pick up your order during of before your trip.
