wiking yacht club

DescriptionMy story begins in 1987, with the idea of a few brave enterpriser to restore an old Houseship. The love for the water and Danube started family Varga on this road too. Today this enterprise grew up to be the greatest complex at Budapest and Szentendre dealing with harbour and ship services. Of course in the beginning when we had to build, paint no one had thougth that many years of hard work would become such sucsess.In the beginning they organized water-skiing, rented jet-skis and maintaned a few harbour places. Of course in 1987, not with todays circumstances, there members were the forerunners of the regime change, the few hungarian business men of then. The foregin water tourism was also popular and many sailed on our countrys waters. The yacht club opened a moodyrestaurant which is opened since.

The owners made a good assumption of the possibilities, and in a few years they created a Harbour into the middle of Szentendre with place for 40 ships, from the originally thought few ones for the hobby users.That time yearly the incoming foregin ships numbered 600-800, until the beginning of the building of the Bős-Nagymaros dam. This tendency inspired investment and upgrades, from this in 1993 director István Varga had the brilliant idea that maybeafter zZentendre Budapest could use a yacht harbour too.

By 1994 he created the circumstances at budapest to open the countrys first true international motorand yacht harbour.The beginning, waterski, jet-ski and restaurant services have become much more numerus and diverse. Today the guests are entertained and the services are provided at an international level. If someonehas the good fortune to invest in this costly hobby than upon entering the gates of the harbour meets the folowing view.After passing dozens of boats,ships and yachts one reaches the 30 ton crane wirh rhe office building in its base. After entering the building youare greeted by a wartm welcome and can listen to the options. Beginner or professional everyone can find options to there enjoyment. Of course its not recomended for beginners to buy a ship or boat, its advised to learn the basics first. But we ran forward, without a boatdriveing license you cant drive jet-ski, motorboat or yacht.

There are other possible options in the harbour once reaching Hungarys centrum. The docking is assisted by mariners day and night. After docking you can refuel your ship at the only water tankstation in the country at the danube which operates since more than 5 years. You can visit our restaurant in which you can find many gastronomical specialities. If someone wants to make a boat rip but does not have an own he can make use of our water taxi service.
