Rederij Noord-Zuid becomes Blue Boat Company and the canal boats get a makeover.
Blue Boat Company takes over competitor Amsterdam Canal Cruises. The canal cruise company gets another six boats, which brings the number to 15. As a result of this acquisition, Blue Boat gets a second departure location a little further on the Stadhouderskade, opposite the Heineken Experience.
In 2014 we started operation ‘Naturally green’, with which we are gradually greening our fleet of 15 boats until we emit 0 emissions. More than half of our canal boats already sail 100% on green energy, by 2025 we want to have our entire fleet converted. In January 2016 we took an extra step and all diesel boats (that will be converted in the coming years) switched to the cleaner fuel GTL.
Even this year we’re ready to show you Amsterdam during one of our canal cruises. After all, we show around 750,000 people the beauty of Amsterdam every year. After many years of operation, we’ve approximately welcomed about 18 million people on our canal cruises – about as many as the inhabitants of the whole of the Netherlands!
