Eco Boats Amsterdam owes its name to our commitment to sustainable boating. We find it very important to keep the beautiful canals of Amsterdam clean and have taken the plan of the city of Amsterdam to get the canals completely diesel free as an example. Our electric boats are specially built for this. We are also always busy keeping the canals of Amsterdam clean. For example, we sometimes go plastic fishing and organize boat trips where you can do the same!
