Welcome to Yachthafen Rathje

Friendly Marina in Kiel Yachthafen RathjeThe Yachthafen Rathje is located in the middle of the Kiel Fjord, directly between the Friedrichsorter Lighthouse and the canal locks of Kiel-Holtenau. Yacht owners and boat enthusiasts alike will find a modern, safe marina complete with a new pier and a wave protection wall.

Yachthafen Rathje – Kiel‘s Marina with a Friendly Atmosphere and Tradition

The Yachthafen Rathje is part of the Yacht-und Bootswerft Rathje, a shipyard which has been firmly anchored in Kiel and the Kiel Fjord since 1922.
The location of our marina may be described as perfect, and not only because of its immediate proximity to the shipyard; located far in the Kiel Fjord, you can sail out of our marina relaxed and free of the swell of the Baltic Sea, regardless of wind and weather conditions.

Guest berth for sailing ships in Kiel FjordThe route out of our marina provides direct access to the open Baltic Sea, offering numerous route options for day trips, holidays or week trips.

Whether you are sailing with your yacht in Kiel Bay or are planning a sailing trip in the Baltic Sea, Yachthafen Rathje is the best place to stay overnight or use as your port of departure for the entire holiday.
We will gladly send you an offer for a guest berth for the duration of your stay. You’ll find our contact details and our contact form below.

Over the past two years, we have invested in modernizing the Yacht-und Bootswerft Rathje and the Yachthafen Rathje. All renovations were completed in the 2019 Season. Our completely renovated pier “Steg Ost” offers 24 additional berths—so we have berths for 100 yachts up to a length of 25m.

In September 2019 we opened our yachtshop, which presents you with a large selection of yacht and boat accessories in a cosy, maritime atmosphere.

E-bikes and load bikes with electric drive are available for rent in our marina, so our customers are mobile on land. With these methods of transportation you can easily reach the supermarkets in Pries-Friedrichsort, and bring your purchases back on board in an environmentally-friendly manner with little effort.
