WHAT NOT  TO EXPECT FROM YOUR SELF DRIVE BOAT?

  • luxury

Although our self drive boats have the zero emission electric engine and the aluminium hull in common, they are not exactly the Tesla’s of the Amsterdam canals. We provide free foam seats to sit on and the electric propulsion guarantees a smooth and silent ride, but at the best Amsterdam boat rental rates don’t expect a luxurious boat.

  • speed

Don’t expect a powerful or fast boat either. The official speed limit on the Amsterdam canals is just 6 km/h and our boats go about 5 km/h. This is walking speed, allowing you to have a good look at all the beauty surrounding you. You’ll be surprised what you can see in a couple of hours. Please check our section on Amsterdam canal routes for more info.

  • Alternative rental boats

All of our boats are completely open and self operated. If you prefer a self drive boat that is partly covered, have a look at Boaty Rent a Boat Amsterdam. Boaty is located in the southern city center. For other types of rental boats (larger and more luxurious, with a captain) we can recommend colleagues with nice boats at fair rates. Please contact us for that.
