Choosing a sailing area

Choosing a sailing area depends on the type of Doerak and the sailing experience of the captain. Every sailing area has multiple navigation routes to choose from. Especially the vertical clearance makes a big difference when choosing the sailing area and navigation routes.

Sailing with children

1430For children sailing means a lot of fun, outdoor activities and adventure. Fishing, swimming and playing outside in beautiful nature. Visiting small towns and villages or go for an excursion. On a rainy day the kids can play a boardgame of watch TV/DVD in the cosy wheelhouse/lounge. Sailing with children requires some discipline and respect for safety. We advise parents to make sure that children always wear their lifejackets and do not run on the jetty. Especially in the beginning the children need to get used to the movements of the ship and how to move around on the boat. In our experience children really enjoy a sailing holiday. An unforgettable experience. We offer a lot of extra options for sailing with children. For example: baby beds, high chairs and safety fences. The ultimate childfriendly motorboats are the Doerak 911 AK and the Doerak 1011 AK. They are both part of the Family- design which means that they are totally childproof.

The difference between the motorboats are the number of cabins, seperate shower and toilet area or combined, fixed beds or converting a sofa/dinette into a bed and the size of the outside areas.
