In the past, now i'm talking about maybe 5-15 years ago,
after sailing to Japan, a visit and stay in HuisTen Bosch Marina
was almost a must!
It was cheap, fun and and a very safe place in all seasons.
So many good Blog stories can be read about HtB
( see eg Illywacker, Shaddow of Lorelei, Alishan).
But since a few years, the tide has changed.
Maybe because of bad experience with foreign boats,
maybe because of the Total New Management...
now the situation is:
Foreign boats are NOT WELCOME at all.
I just talked to the Marina Manager to arrange a berth
for an foreign boat and he tells me..
No Visitors Pontoon available..
(he meaned something else of course).
I bet.... if a Japanese boat shows up.....
So, give Huis ten Bosch a Big Miss!
It's a pitty as it is still the best place in all seasons
and there are berths available!
