Easy sailing on a Doerak
Stability, shallow draught and lowered entrance
The Doerak is a comfortable, spacious and easy going moterboat. Stability, shallow draught, lowered entrence and vertical clearance are the unique key words of a Doerak. Due to this, a Doerak is extremely well suited for the waterways of Friesland, Groningen, Drenthe en Overijssel. Sailing a Doerak isn't hard, just with one single hand you will sail forward and backwards. We call this single-hand-sailing.
Low vertical clearance
Furthermore all our Doeraks are provided with a bow thruster. This extra thruster at the front of the ship, makes that you can manoeuvere more easily (for example by stormy weather) the ship to the mooringplace. Our ships are also provided with a stern thruster to make sailing with the Doerak even more comfortable.
All of our Doeraks have a maxium vertical clearance of 2,50 meter. Some types of Doeraks can easily be lowered to 2,45/2,50 meter by removing the tent. With some of the Doeraks you can also remove the wheelhouse windows to lower the Doerak to a vertical clearance of 1.90 meter. This would give you the opportunity to visit the more quiet and less busy waterways. There are only a few motorboats in Friesland available for rent that have the same level of vertical clearance as the Doerak. We offer a lot of interesting navigational routes for a motorboat with a low vertical clearance.
