Canal cruising with the Prinsen boat

The Prinsen boat has room for no less than 8 people and you’ll be cruising the canals in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way as well. All our boats are electric, which means they don’t pollute the canals. As a result, you won’t have to put up with a noisy engine or smelly exhaust fumes. What are you waiting for? Reserve a boat now!

Prinsen boat rates

Would you like to go on a canal cruise with the Prinsen boat? You can rent a Prinsen boat for only €100 for a minimum of 2 hours. Do you want to rent a boat for a longer period? That is possible. You can decide for yourself how long you want to rent our boats. For every hour longer, you only pay a low fee of €50 per hour. Because the Prinsen boat has room for 8 people, the price per person is extra cheap.

Do you prefer a larger boat?

Do you prefer a slightly larger boat for more people? Then take a look at our Keizers boats, which can accommodate up to 12 people. Just like the Prinsen boats, they are electric, sustainable and easy to steer by means of a steering wheel.
