The well-appointed tide-dependent Bremervörde Marina (Yellow Wave) is the last navigable harbour in the ‘Oste’ waterway. Guests are always welcome here. The harbour is about 68 km away from the Elbe bei Neuhaus and can be reached in about 6 hours of travel on the Oste with a rising tide. It is only possible to enter the harbour at high tide (up to 1.70 m draught). The harbour doesn’t dry up, but the water depth will get down to about 0.60 m at low tide in the entrance. The dockyards of the Oste Yacht Club and the Vörder Yacht Clubs offer plenty of guest slips all year round, and these are marked by green signs. The facility has power and water hookups, and a bathroom facility with shower and toilets is available directly on the harbour. There are facilities for waste disposal and sewage disposal. Connected to the harbour are a fuelling station and a freely accessible slip facility (open April–October). The nearby city centre offers a wide variety of opportunities to shop and relax. www.bremervoerde.de, www.oycbrv.de
