Raft for 18 people - Potsdam

also WITHOUT slide! *Equipment may vary

If only "WITHOUT SLIDE" is displayed, the boats with slide are already fully booked.

Product description

With our 8.00 m x 3.00 m catamarans, young and old can explore the waters of Berlin and Potsdam at their leisure. A touch of adventure, nature and serenity. Our rafts offer you the opportunity to chill out on the roof terrace (max. 3 people) while friends and family barbecue and relax below. Some of our rafts are equipped with a slide that allows you to cool off immediately and is an absolute fun factor. All boats are equipped with a gas barbecue, so you can take a break at any time and explore the Berlin forests and lakes. All this without a driving licence, as our rafts are equipped with a 10 hp outboard motor. The open terrace at the front and the accessible roof terrace make it perfect for birthdays, family celebrations, bachelor parties, team events or even large corporate events for up to 240 people with several rafts.

Services

All our rafts are equipped with an anchor and a gas barbecue, and have plenty of seating and lounging options to spend a perfect day on the water. Should you get caught in a short summer rain, our roofed, canvas-covered cottage offers sufficient protection. Life jackets and safety equipment are a matter of course with us. We always have plenty of life jackets available in all sizes.

You must be at least 18 years old and not under the influence of alcohol. Not having a licence does not mean that everything is allowed. On the water, at least one person must be sober as a skipper.

What you should bring

For your adventure on the water, be sure to bring sunscreen, a bathing suit and your squeaky duck.

You have to sign and pay for the liability insurance on site. This is 15,00 EUR / raft, unfortunately your private liability insurance does not cover damages.

Please bring a valid identity card and a deposit of 400,00 EUR in cash.

What else is there

You can book a few options for your unforgettable day on the water, such as a crate of beer, processo or barbecue (for large events). Of course, you can also book a SUP or buy an air mattress on site.

The fuel consumption is calculated at the end of your adventure tour according to the operating hours (pure running time of the engine).

If you wish, you can also book a camping toilet on site for 10.00 EUR/day (self-disposal).

Is there a toilet/WC on board?

No, all our rafts do not have a toilet on board. As a rule, you can stop at various places during your tour to use the toilet. In case of emergency, you can book a camping toilet with us. You can get one on site without any problems, we have enough in stock. Please note that the toilet is a SELF-SERVICE.

Do I have to be there on time at 10am?

You do not have to be there at 10.00 a.m. but you should have taken over the boat by 12.00 p.m. at the latest. From 10:00 you can take delivery of the boats, decorate them individually for your party if required and load them with your food and drinks. Please remove your individual decorations after your trip and make sure that no balloons with confetti or similar contents are used, so that the water is not polluted if the balloon should burst.

Power/socket or music?

There is NO electricity or power socket on board, nor is there a music system. Please do not bring any music equipment with you, as this only causes unnecessary noise and trouble on the water, as others may feel disturbed by too loud music. 

For how many people is a boat allowed?

Depending on the type, the number of people allowed varies. Please enquire about the maximum number of persons on the basis of the different products.

IMPORTANT:

This is about the number of persons, not the weight. Babies and children also count as full persons. In the event of an inspection by the water police, you can expect to be fined if the number of people is exceeded. You will also be escorted to the next mooring and the excess person(s) will have to be let off the raft. If you do not adhere to the number of persons, we can prohibit you from the date at your own expense. 

Do I need a driving licence?

You don't need a driving licence to hire a raft from us. All boats are licence-free. However, you should be at least 18 years old to rent a boat from us. Driving licence free does not mean "law free"; also on the water applies: "No drinking and driving!" - otherwise your insurance cover and your driving licence are at risk, just like when riding a bicycle in traffic.

Are special skills required?

We will give you a basic introduction to the most important traffic and behavioural rules on the water and the regulations to be observed. Consideration must be shown to other water sports enthusiasts. Nuisance through noise and inappropriate behaviour must be avoided. Everyone wants to spend an unforgettable day on the water and enjoy it to the fullest.

Dogs?

Four-legged friends are not allowed on the boats. Please remember the 4-legged ones have little space and the floor can get very warm. So it is not a pleasant experience for the 4-legged ones. 

Can you barbecue on the raft?

It is possible to barbecue on the raft, with the necessary caution. All boats have a gas grill on board, also the gas bottle is included.

Is the consumption of petrol included in the rental costs?

The consumption of petrol is not included in the rental price. The cost of petrol is calculated on the basis of an operating hours meter at 12.00 EUR/hour in 15-minute intervals. The operating hours counter only runs when the ignition is switched on. Example: If you leave the harbour and go out for 45 minutes only to anchor; spend the whole day there and return in the evening for 45 minutes, then you can calculate 1.50 hours at 12 EUR = 18 EUR for petrol.

How much is the deposit?

A cash deposit of EUR 400.00 per raft is to be paid in cash when taking over the boat

How high is the deductible?
