Trailer ramps in the Netherlands on the map
Along the Dutch waters you will find hundreds of slipways where you can launch your boat. Here you can see where you can go.
Many of these slopes are free to use, but there are also ones - in marinas for example - for which you need to be a member or pay a fee. This has both advantages and disadvantages, you can read more about this in the article below the map.
