Meeting- and traininscenter SchipperswelzijnVZW

Welcome

The Skipper Welfare Association originally began as a specialized skipper store with affordable, daily fresh products. It also had a hair salon and laundry place for the captain and the crew. Basic comfort at ships was hard to find but as living conditions improved on board, The Skipper Welfare Association has grown into Belgian's leading training center for the Belgian inland navigation. It's also open for the wider transport sector, harbor related businesses and non-profit organizations. The Skipper Welfare has many different rooms available, all of them are provided with the latest audio-visual equipment. Let's take a look at all the different options.
