The ‘secret’ formula behind our affordable rates

1. focus: we only rent boats, and only for the Amsterdam canals. Whether completely open or with a canopy, all of our boats are basically the same. This allows us to operate efficiently and to reduce costs;
2. no overpriced catering: you may bring your own food and drinks on board;
3. you don’t pay for overhead like a fancy office, a personal assistant or a luxury canteen. We prefer to invest in solid equipment and personal service;
4. our boats are electric and powered by solar energy. So we don’t have to charge you for expensive gasoline or diesel. Good for you, and for the environment.

How do you profit from the way we work?  

  1. we operate efficiently and save costs because our boats are basically all the same;
    2. we don’t provide any overpriced catering; feel free to bring your own food and drinks;
    3. you don’t pay for overhead like a fancy office, a personal assistant or a luxury canteen;
    4. the electric propulsion powered by solar energy is cheaper than fuel (and better for the environment too).
