Discover the historic city centre of Amsterdam from the water
Chose your own route, have your own snacks and drinks on board and be your own captain. Canal Motorboats is a family-owned boat rental company that has been run by father and son for many years. Renting a boat from them is easy and without any hassle.
No navigation licence required
Canal Motorboats rents out 10 electric motorboats that are spacious and of little weight, for a maximum of 7 persons. All boats have a maximum speed of up to 6.5 kilometres an hour, which means that you don't need a navigation licence.
Canal Motorboats' aluminium boats are safe thanks to a built-in safety system. Free life jackets are provided for children under 12.
You're the captain
The environmentally friendly 'fluisterboten' (whisper boats) are powered by an electric motor, which has the advantages that they are easy to operate, make little noise, and no license or knowledge of sailing is required.
Bookings from one hour upwards are possible and the more hours you book, the lower the costs.
