Introduction

Dear reader, The appeal of Amsterdam as a destination for superyachts – both in its own right and as a port of call enroute to Scandinavia and beyond – is increasingly on the radar of superyacht owners and captains. Amsterdam’s prime geographical location and friendly regulatory environment for large yachts is backed up by superb mooring spots in the heart of the city and the rich diversity of leisure opportunities on offer. Moreover, the options for refits are growing fast and there is a dense web of superyacht building yards, designers and suppliers in close proximity of the city. Amsterdam is a city of great traditions and has a rich history. One of the traditions we embrace is the hand-over of the plaque and key of the city to ships during their first call. We continue this tradition for visiting superyachts. Captains and owners are pleased to receive this warm welcome and at the same time it gives us the opportunity to explain more about Amsterdam and the Northern European Route.

We are looking forward to welcome you!
