About Maarten

No better medicine


Even since I was four years old, I’ve been at the helm of sailboats. During my childhood, our family of six, and sometimes even a dog, used to spend the every weekend out on the water. We started out with a small boat, and every three years it became a little bigger. These are some of my fondest childhood memories. My passion for sailing is rooted in these childhood memories, and I don’t believe I will ever lose that passion. Being out on the water soothes the soul and allows you to wind down after a long, hard week. There really is no better medicine.


What can you expect from me?

I would love to share with you my 45 years of experience sailing dozens of motor and sailing yachts throughout all of Europe. I still rent sailing yachts abroad with friends and family every year. Not just to enjoy and relax, but also to learn how to optimize our service and how to prepare a better experience for you.

Our ships are well taken care of, clean, and in great condition. This is something we work on every day, and something we pride ourselves on. My dream is to share my passion with so many others. You too can share in this experience aboard one of our many sailing or motor yachts. Be careful, however: once you start, you’ll never want to stop.


Team Waterfront Jachtcharter consists of Maarten Koopen, Twan van Es and Lia Goudriaan.

Together we will work to make your holidays out on the water an unforgettable experience!
