With extensive recreational possibilities for cruises to Zaan, Alkmaardermeer, IJselmeer, the top of Noord-Holland, the North Sea, Amsterdam, the Vecht region and more, it's no wonder the Zaan Region has so many yacht harbours. The total mooring capacity is over 1500 places. One of the largest yacht harbours in the country is in Nauerna, in branch canal F of the North Sea Canal, with a capacity of over 350 moorings. Below follows a survey, from north to south, of the yacht harbours of the Zaan Region.

Filling Station Vos
Filling Station Vos is located in Koog aan de Zaan on Zuideinde between Prins Alexanderbrug and the Coentunnel. Here boating tourists can obtain fuel. Two pumps are on the banks of the Zaan, where pleasure craft can moor.
Landing Stages (Stopping Place Plan)
The Municipalities of Zaanstad and Wormerland are presently working on plans for enticing the water sports tourist to stay in town longer. Some 15,000 pleasure boats per year currently cruise along the Zaan directly to Alkmaardermeer and beyond, without stopping in the Zaan Region. This situation is mainly due to a lack of moorings - a pity since the towns of the Zaan Region have much more to offer than only the Zaanse Schans. Attractions include many museums, catering establishments, shopping in the various town centres, the picturesque villages and surprising walking and cycling routes.
Work is starting this year in Zaanstad and Wormerland on the construction of the first three landing stages. These will be located near Snookerscentrum in central Zaandam, behind the Albert Heijn supermarket in Koog aan the Zaan, and near the Poelsluis in Wormer. Another thirty landing stages will be built in the coming years in collaboration with local merchants. Some of these facilities will have electricity and water supplied to make possible an overnight stay. Every jetty will also post a sign giving general and specific information. An annual list of the events in the Zaan Region completes the sign.
