About us

Dear captains,

we are Anne & Dirk from Captain You in Berlin / Brandenburg. Our area is near Potsdam and since November 2020 we have the boat license and explore the Havel and its surrounding waters with our small vintage catamaran Terasa. With our new dream boat we explore the Dahme waters. We are not yet professionals, but use every free minute and enjoy the time on the water in togetherness. Whether weekend trip, swimming trip, vacation, city tour, dinner trip, fishing turn or mulled wine trip makes no difference – the main thing is that we are on the water and in nature.

What is there to discover here?

this page is meant to take you along on our adventures. In our blog #Boat Life we report live from the water about our experiences and try to provide insides for experienced water sports enthusiasts and interested newcomers. Under #Vids you will find videos of the most beautiful trips – by boat, virtually and in real time – directly on your screens at home. In the #Tips section we present you the best experiences, services, gadgets, offers, events and much more around water sports in Berlin & Brandenburg. In our Captain You Shop – by Spreadshirt – you can order various items like t-shirts, sweaters, bags, stickers, bread boxes, pins and much more with our fancy logo. In addition, we present you more cool designs from the world of #Boat Life.

Our drive

When water hiking, we are traveling at around 10 km/h. The journey is the destination and total deceleration is part of the concept. When it comes to boats, many people might first think of wealthy pensioners. But the opposite is the case here. Camping and self-built vans are becoming increasingly popular, especially among young people. Boating is like camping on the water, but with much more distance and peace with pure nature. The costs are also manageable and really far from luxury. Buying a boat was probably one of our best decisions ever. The quality of life and joy on the water is unique. Our goal is to share this with you and to motivate you to do the same. Discover with us the fascination Boat Life and have fun reading.

Cast off and see you soon
