Additional information:

The harbour-light is a former rear high light (also locally known as ‘t Vuurtje). The town has a light since unknown date, but at least since 1859. Today the skeleton steel structure (with symbolic blue light) is bypassed by a modern red harbour light. National monument since 1997 (nr. 507076). Because of a train-ferry service between Enkhuizen and Stavoren (1886-1936), the town has harbour-lights on her long breakwaters as well. The fishing fleet of Enkhuizen can be recognized by EH as vessel registration.
