Canal du Nivernais

There are two wonderful cruising areas in the Netherlands: Heart of Holland (rivers and lakes in the triangle of Amsterdam, Rotterdam & Utrecht) and the lakes region of Friesland in the north. The densest network of waterways in Europe connects these areas to all of the cities and major towns. It is also recognized as the best place in Europe to buy a vessel and find a boatyard for renovations, or to custom-order a new canal cruiser. There are many highly respected boat builders and brokers here.
