  • Ecologically friendly: we charge our boat with green energy 
  • License? No need for a license, due to the limited power of the engine
  • Captain? You are the captain, we do not rent out the sloop with a captain. 
  • Children: can walk around freely in the boat, or sit on the cushion. The backrest is high enough. They do need to wear a safety jacket though. We provide with jackets for all ages. 
  • Comfort: relax comfortably on the luxurious seating cushions. There are blankets for the early morning chill. When it rains, just open the rain tent. If the sun shines down remorselessly, open the bimini-top. 
  • Bagage: you can store items under the cushions.
  • Advertising: there is no advertising on the boat, you steer it as if it was your own
  • Need more than 1 boat?: Meandering has one sloop only, but we work with others if you need more.
  • Flag pole: make sure to take down the flag pole when you enter Ghent, as it will hit the bridges.
