The Griffioen

THE GRIFFIOEN (or Griffin in English) is a luxurious open GOZZO-type boat. Thanks to the low clearance height of the gozzo, we can sail along the most beautiful places in Ghent and surrounding areas.Sailing with the born and bred Gentenaar Daan Hugaert is an experience! So be sure to check out the "Ghent with Daan" cruise. We are also happy to take a Vizit guide  on board with us. Gents, Dutch, French or English: we speak your language. Enjoy the intimate atmosphere of our gozzo in a small group. The prices stated are always per route and not per person.

De Griffioen
The Griffioen in times of Corona.

THE GRIFFIOEN is an open sloop. So we sit outside at safe distance.
However Corona reduces the number of persons to maximum five and skipper.

See the picture below to find the possible combinations of the number of persons.

Place 1.
Up to three people if belonging to the same bubble.

Place 2.
Up to two people if belonging to the same bubble.

We ask everybody to wear the mask while coming on and leaving board.
Please use the hand sanitizer first.
I sanitize the boat before you come aboard.
