We had a lovely time! Our skipper Freddy was very friendly. Maybe one small recommendation: We had rented a different boat, but it unfortunately broke down during the day, so we were on a smaller boat than expected. We would have liked to be notified a bit before (as we brought a lot of food/drinks/gifts and it ended up being quite packed on the boat). Other than that, we were super satisfied with the cruise. Thank you!

Open boat rental Amsterdam

The sloop is an open boat and therefore particularly popular during the summer months. Due to their open character, these sloops offer a lot of visibility. Not all sloops are equipped with a canopy or a toilet. All our sloops are rented with skipper.

Self-drive boat rental (small boat without skipper)

With small groups (up to six people) it is possible to rent a small self-drive boat. You don’t need a license to rent such a boat at Boaty or Boats4rent.

The electric boats are very easy to operate after a personal instruction about the handling and the basic rules on the Amsterdam canals. A large laminated canal map with nice route suggestions is included. Just like foam seats and life vests in different sizes.

You can rent these boats for a three or four hour time slot or a full day. The rates start at € 79,- per boat for a three hour time slot.

Attention: Please contact Boaty or Boats4rent directly for more information and bookings!
