Boat Meetings

We like organizing special events : they make it possible to discover new possibilities and a new world. Whether it concerns handicapped people getting introduced to watersports by means of the operation “Handiribs” or the big audience discovering classic boats or English flatboats.

Classic Motorboats

Classic boats in varnished mahogany wood are rare. Fortunately, there are still boat-lovers who are proud to the results of sometimes years of restoration !

Handiribs

Giving a complete safe navigation-experience to people with limited freedom of movement is very affecting.

A “normal” nautical sensation can be experienced ten times as big by handicapped persons. Partially sighed people especially appreciated the speed and the quickly changing impressions of the perfumes of water and surroundings. After a trip to the Isle of Yvoir a small snack was offered in Jambes.

British Barge Association

A good exemple of old commercial flatboats, rebuilt to barges.

This meeting brought together about twenty freighters, originally from England , France , the Netherlands and Denmark . They used the opportunity to have a parade, but also to show their new interiors the the public present.

Much of these boats are occupied by their owners permanently now.
