You are looking for a rental boat in Amsterdam. But the type of boat that you would like to rent is not clear. This is not uncommon. Please find an explanation of the boat types below.
To distinguish the boats we have on offer we have used the following names: Y boat, classic canal boat, open boat and canal barge:
IJ boat: Named after the big water behind the central station. Y boats are boats that are suitable for larger groups and that, due to their size, cannot pass the bridges within the city centre of Amsterdam. The boarding location of these boats are either on the IJ or the Amstel river, but their cruising area is restricted to the IJ, IJsselmeer, Amstel, North Sea canal and upon request the Vecht river.
Canal barge: The canal barges are classic boats originally built as freight carriers sailing the Dutch canals. Nowadays they are completely refurbished to serve as boats taking you and your guests through the Amsterdam canals. Perfectly suited to carry larger groups and can, in contrast to the IJ boats, pass the lower bridges in the city centre.
Classic canal boat: The classic canal boats are the most common boats on the Rent A Boat Amsterdam website and range from small 12 person boats to 55 person boats. The classic canal boat is the boat for you if you are looking for an exclusive cruise in style. Despite their name most of the classic canal boats are equipped with all modern facilities.
Open boat: The open boat is the most popular boat during the summer months. These boats are open and therefore offer a lot of “experience”, but they have the disadvantage that there is no shelter or toilet. The open boats are considered by many the best way to view Amsterdam from the canals.
