About us

Happyachts was founded in 2018 and offers licence-free boating experiences from its home base in Alphen aan den Rijn. To be able to offer these experiences, Happyachts has teamed up with Locaboat for supplying the ships and with marina "Haven aan den Rijn" as the home/departure base. 


Happyachts was created by me, Bastiaan den Hartogh, born and raised in Rotterdam. The love for the water and boats started when I was just a little boy. Almost every sunny weekend and holiday you would find me on board my grandparents yacht. So you could say I was partly raised on the water.


The dream of Happyachts was born during a boat journey of 14 months through France and further developped after returning to Rotterdam. It took a lot of hard work, patience and perseverance, but voilá, here I am today. 


Happyachts strives to be the best when it comes to delivering a truly magical experience on the beautiful Dutch waterways, combined with a high level of customer happiness and customer satisfaction. In short, a life-changing experience!


I hope to see you soon in Alphen aan den Rijn.
