Boat Rentals

With a capacity of up to 110 persons per boat, renting a boat is the quickest and cheapest way to transport your guests within the city centre of Amsterdam. Plus they get to see all the sights as a bonus!

Boat rental – the specifications

Our fleet consists of 15 large, covered canal boats.  Five of our fleet are equipped with wheelchair access and two powered with electric engines. All of our boats have central heating, a toilet, a glass roof (which can be opened up to 50%), a kitchenette, bar and an outside open rear deck. They have an average standing height of 1.95 meters.
Six of the 15 boats are equipped with (r)emovable tables & chairs – which is unique in Amsterdam.
