There is no need to carry young children long distances to the beach for swimming or fishing. And children are not obliged to sit, tightly seat-belted in a hot car to get there.
A Houseboat is a safe way to spend your family holiday. Houseboats are equipped with all necessary security devices and messaging systems. The Houseboats office is always on standby to answer your questions and give any necessary advice. All Houseboat’s vessels are equipped with GPS trackers, so that even if you do not know where you are, we do, and can help you find your way back on track.
A houseboat is an extremely safe way to spend your holiday when you follow basic safety measures. Use common sense when boating. Travel quietly. Dangerous joyrides are not compatible with the lake environment.
Stay away from large vessels. Houseboats are extremely broad and most waves, including the wake of speedboats, are hardly noticed, but it is still best to be careful. Treat all safety equipment and navigation devices with care. They are meant to protect you and your family.
Always remember to check the weather forecast. If a storm is rising, or if the weather is generally unsuitable for boating, it is always better to stay anchored in a protected place. Remember that alcohol and water activities do not mix. Accidents are much more likely to occur if you are intoxicated.
The Houseboat staff always thoroughly checks the vessel before departure, to ensure that all equipment is up to date, and to make sure that there are correct life vests for all persons on board. Preventive preparation is always of utmost importance when travelling by boat.
