Bert van Gent, co-owner of a sand and gravel trade in 1979, has dreamed of having his own marina from an early age. In that year he started his dream with a small jetty for 20 berths. After joining the municipality with the city district, he received the permits to realize a new marina with 210 berths.
In order to be able to offer a total concept to water sports enthusiasts, a workshop was started in 1983. A shopping ship was also laid where people could go for the necessary water sport items for the boat! Together with his wife Ria, he has put recreational area "De Zandmeren" on the map and the small jetty has since grown into a beautiful water sports complex with 450 berths.
