On May 1st 1987 the Deraedt family, were able to take over the Brugge Marine Centre. The years that followed were not only dedicated to reorganisation but also to the development of a robust marketing plan and the search for new market segments. For several years now, Brugge Marine Centre is also one of the most flexible, fastest growing companies of its kind.
Over the years Brugge Marine Centre was able to build an indisputable reputation for delivering reliable service and repairs. The current market offering of the company is undoubtedly a perfect base for further business expansion, it being: delivering the “tailor-made” exclusive products, higher quality standard products for recreational boating as well as for low-intensive professional use. Which for years their reliability and performance were able to prove.
Since November 1996 the company has been housed in the old Racing Department & Boathouse of OMC-Europe located next to the sea canal in Bruges. A total surface area of approximately 15.00m² is available to you. The boat house has two floors and is fitted with a special crane in order to hoist boats directly out of the canal and to transport them in the workshop for further repairs, maintenance, servicing and/or winter storage.
For those who enter our company on the water, there are a number of covered pontoons available. This easily allows for minor repairs even in the pouring rain. Next to the pontoons and the main building there is also a boat ramp / slipway. This offers the customer the flexibility to participate in test sailings at the same time. Our buildings are located on a 6 mile canal waterway (and a sea lock) from the North Sea. For those who wish to sail further inland this is possible after sailing passage a of just one lock.
Old but gold

In the so-called Boat House, all engines and boats were put to the test on the Boudewijn Canal.
