Skipper Welfare association began as specialized skipper store with affordable fresh products including a hairsalon and a laundry. The comfort of the barges was hard to find. As living conditions improved on board, skipper welfare association has grown into the leading training center for the Belgian inland navigation. But it is also open to the wider transport sector, port-related businesses and nonprofit organizations. The skipper welfare has ample infrastructure with the latest audio-visual equipment.
