About us

Happyachts was founded in 2018 and became operational in January 2020. Happyachts offers licence-free boating holidays from its home base in Alphen aan den Rijn. To be able to offer these holidays, Happyachts has teamed up with Locaboat for ship-supply and with "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 stay 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.
