De Overhaal

The Overhaal in the harbor of Bovenkarspel is an important industrial monument. As early as the 17th century, barges from the polder were transferred to this harbor on the Zuiderzee. At that time it was still with wheels over a wall. This facility was important for trading and transporting the supply of vegetables to Amsterdam and the countries along the Baltic Sea. There was strong competition with the harbor in Enkhuizen. The electrical installation for this boat lift was made in 1923.
