Ports in Enkhuizen

Buyshaven Enkhuizen

Watersports enthusiasts who love space, greenery and a friendly atmosphere are right at home in the Buyshaven. The coziness of the historic downtown, museums, stores and restaurants are a 10-minute walk from this beautiful harbor.

Company port

This lively and cozy harbor is located in the center of Enkhuizen, next to the Zuiderzee Museum. Due to its excellent (recreational) possibilities, the Compagnieshaven guarantees a particularly pleasant stay. Not for nothing do some 18,000 ships moor in this port every year!

Municipal ports

Near the train station, VVV and the Drommedaris are the municipal harbors. These attractive harbors are popular with both permanent berth holders and passers-by. De Oude Haven is a beautiful picturesque inland harbor. One thing the municipal harbors have in common; from the boat you step right into the historic center of Enkhuizen!

Night Register Municipal Harbor

As of May 2021, a night register will be kept in the Municipal Harbor. This means that the details of the overnight vessel and the owner/skipper must be registered. Proof of identity will also be checked. The night register is kept digitally and is done simultaneously with the payment of harbor fees via or scan the QR code near your berth. A port employee will visit you to check your ID proof (passport or driver’s license).

Payment of port fees will therefore no longer be possible at the pay machine as of May 2021. You can still purchase or top up a SepCard at the pay machine.
