Cruising the canals with the Keizers boat

At Eco Boats you rent a private boat for a very low price. You are allowed to cruise the canals in Amsterdam without a license. There is room for 12 people on our Keizers boats and you are also being environmentally friendly. All our boats are electric so they do not pollute the canals. Therefore, you do not suffer from a roaring engine or foul exhaust fumes while boating.

Keizers boats rates

The minimum rental time for the Keizers boats is 2 hours. You can rent a Keizers boat for only €120 for 2 hours. Would you like to cruise the canals for longer? That’s possible! You pay a low rate of €60 for each subsequent hour. So you can decide how long you want to rent a boat. What are you waiting for? Book a boat quickly and enjoy your day in Amsterdam!

Prefer a smaller boat?

Would you prefer a slightly smaller boat? Then take a look at our Prinsen boats, with room for 8 people. Just like the Keizers boats, they are environmentally friendly, electric and can be steered by means of a steering wheel.
