WELCOME to the website / webshop of Datema Amsterdam.

Datema Amsterdam was located at the Prins Hendrikkade in Amsterdam from 1996 to 2016. From January 2016 to January 2019, our location was at the Eind in Gorinchem.

Then another trip was made to only have a webshop. From 1 March 2021, Datema Amsterdam can be reached again in a store: Vrolijk Watersport, Visafslagweg 1, hall 18-20, 2583 DM Scheveningen.

Nothing has changed in the range and the webshop will continue as usual. We have all books “on the shelf” that have something to do with water and sailing. From pilots and theory books to relaxing nautical reading. We also supply all navigation charts (water charts and sea charts) of all places in the world. From the inland waters of the Netherlands and Europe to the world's seas and oceans. Whether you have a sailing boat, motor yacht, sloop, rowing boat or canoe, at Datema Amsterdam you can complete your sailing holiday or sea trip.

In order to make your boating holiday or (long) sea voyage a success, we want to work with you to make the right choice with regard to water charts, sea charts, almanacs and books. Good advice prevents your ship from prematurely stranded or skewed due to an unnecessary stock of books and maps.

Our motto has always been:

"Tell us which waters in the world you want to visit
and we take care of your nautical charts and books.
Datema Amsterdam guarantees quality and care "

Or as a customer once put it:

Datema Amsterdam for good and
personal advice and a safe journey!
