Is there a possibility of renting a bike?
You can rent a bike and take it on board for 25 euro for a foldable bike and 30 euro for an adult bike.

The bikes along with TV and additional boat are on request.
Why must I pay a deposit?
Unfortunately, an accident on the water is no exception. That's why all our yachts are standard fully insured and your own risks is restricted to the deposit.
