Hungry or thirsty?

When sailing with GoBoat, it's always a good idea to bring food and drinks on board. A picnic at sea makes the time on the water even more enjoyable!

You're always welcome to bring your own drinks and snacks or you can easily order food and drinks online when you book your sailing trip. And if you're looking for the finishing touch to your trip, you can still add more drinks and snacks at check-in.

The assortment varies depending on which location you are sailing from.

How to be a good captain

To steer a GoBoat, place your dominant hand on the handle. Be aware that the handle steers in the opposite direction of where you point. To sail forward and backward, twist the handle to the right to move forward and to the left to reverse.

Keep a vigilant eye on other vessels and always adhere to the direction of travel. React in good time as a boat cannot turn or brake particularly quickly. As a general rule, keep to the right - as in traffic.

The yellow buoys indicate shallow water, so please keep a distance from these areas to prevent the boat from getting stuck.

Spread the good vibes and wave to other sailors and passersby on the quay.

Company and private events with GoBoat

Make your next company event, Friday drinks, summer party, birthday celebration or other social event an unforgettable experience on the water with your colleagues and friends.

You can choose between different packages catered to your needs. Are you looking for "just" a sailing trip or do you want the luxury treatment? You can add a cap, tattoos etc. to complete the maritime look.

Our maximum capacity is 56 people.
