Hiring conditions - Hiswa
Hiswa Vereniging is the trade association for water sports companies in The Netherlands. A rental agreement for pleasure boats is agreed and signed by the renter and the hirer. This contract has been written in cooperation with consumer organisations such as the ANWB (Dutch Automobile Association) and serves the interests of both renters and hirers.
All our boats are fully insured. Before embarking, a deposit of between € 500,- and € 1.000,- (depending on the size of the boat), which is the equivalent of the insurance excess, has to be paid in cash or by creditcard (4% surcharge). Please check in advance in your own country if you can take out additional insurance to cover the amount of the excess.
Boating licence / Sailing school
You are required to have adequate experience to hire one of our boats . If you have no, or very little, sailing experience you need to complete a short course of at least 3 hours at our sailing school. If you have a boat licence, this will of course be a great advantage when renting a boat. If you want to cruise on the Westerschelde or North Sea, you must have a licence for your own safety. As a special service, all our customers will receive one hour of free instruction from an instructor to familiarise them with the boat which they are hiring. In the case of sailing yachts, if the instructor considers your abilities to be insufficient for rental, then you must undertake a 3 hour sailing course so that you can sail the boat safely and confidently. If you want to sail on the North Sea you are obliged to have a life raft and a North Sea kit on board.
All our boats are very well equipped and all the latest nautical charts and almanacs are on board. A wide range of other equipment such as navigation aids, life jackets, binoculars and an extensive range of cookware, crockery and utensils are all included in the standard rental price. Motor cruisers are also equipped with a chartplotter, speedometer, depth gauge, rudder indicator, compass and VHF radio. Sailing yachts have a log, a depth gauge and compass on board and yachts over 30' are also equipped with a chartplotter, an anemometer, GPS and a VHF Radio. All boats have pillows on board and it is recommended that you bring your own sleeping bags or sheets and duvets. These can also be hired from us. All Linssen motor cruisers are fully equipped with duvets and bed linen.
Please note that VHF radios are mainly supplied for listening to weather forecasts, warnings and monitoring of communication between stations. For those who have a VHF Operator's licence, the VHF radios may also be used for direct communication with other ship and shore stations such as locks, bridges, etc..
When the children are happy then you will be happy and have a more enjoyable holiday. All our motorcruisers are as child friendly as possible and all boats have a TV. For the youngest children, we have a child protection net which you can fit yourself, or we can do it for you at a standard price. We also have rubber dinghies with 4HP outboards for hire.
Pets are generally not allowed on our boats for hygiene reasons. On a few boats, by arrangement with the owner, small pets/dogs are allowed. An extra cost for cleaning of €60 will be charged in these circumstances.
You can park your car safely and for free in our parking area at Delta Marina in Kortgene and Aalsmeer.
You have the option of renting a dinghy with or without an outboard engine, extra life jackets, life raft, additional sailing gear, etc. When you have made a booking, we will send you a list with all the options available. Only available as long there is stock.
During the charter season, we are open 7 days a week from 9.00am to 6.00pm (Sunday 5.00pm) for any questions, requests for help or reporting of incidents. We will always do our best to assist you as quickly as possible. For new customers, we provide one hour's free instruction in manoeuvring and handling of the boat, on request.
The Hiswa rental agreement contains the date and time of embarkation. There is no advantage in arriving earlier than this, as the time between the previous disembarkation and your embarkation is kept as short as possible, so that our customers can enjoy their holidays for as long as possible. We would appreciate it if you could let us know your expected time of arrival in advance and, if you are delayed en route, please give us a call.
We expect you to return the boat at the agreed time and in the same, clean condition as you received it. If the boat is damaged in any way, or something is broken on board, please give us a call as soon as possible. We can then take immediate action to ensure that the next customer will hire the boat in a complete and safe condition. You are obliged to refuel your hire boat yourself at the fuel station at the Charter base. In Leimuiden is no fuel station so you have to refuel at Kudelstaart (only 4km).
During winter, we are as busy as we are in the summertime thoroughly maintaining all of our boats. We repaint and polish the boats as well as check equipment, replenish supplies, etc. to ensure that the boats are in first class condition. We also inspect all boats in the interval between hires and undertake any minor maintenance which is required.
