Consortium of Dutch yacht builders announces new event — the Dutch Yachting Weekend — for first weekend of September 2020.
The first edition of the Dutch Yachting Weekend will take place in Medemblik on Friday 4 to Sunday 6 September. With the disappearance of September’s HISWA in-water show, a number of Dutch yards put heads together and decided to organise a small-scale event so that the best Netherlands-built boats can still be presented to the international water sports public.
Saffier Yachts, Contest Yachts, Jachtwerf Heeg and AdmiralsTender moore their range of models at quay side and are accessible for all visitors. In addition to the yacht builders, leading well-known suppliers of navigation equipment, sails, mast and deck fittings, insurance services and upholstery will also exhibit. There will be seminars and workshops, too. More information about the full and growing program will be available from the beginning of August on www.dutchyachtingweekend.nl and on the websites of the participating shipyards.
The waterside location of Contest Yachts in Medemblik offers the perfect opportunity to organise this event. In a large hall, suppliers of A-brands will present themselves. The 22 berths in front of the construction halls offer ample spread space for the yacht builders to dock their craft, and there will also be smaller trailerable boats on show on the quay.
Naturally, the Dutch Yachting Weekend will be organized entirely in accordance with the RIVM (Dutch National Institute for Public Health & Environment) guidelines.
