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 boat rates

The Keizers boat can be rented for €120 for 2 hours. Do you want to rent the boat for a longer time? That is also possible. For each hour longer you pay a low rate of only €60 per hour. So you can decide how long you want to cruise the canals. Because the boat has room for 12 people, the price per person is extra cheap!

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.
