Boat rental rates Canal Motorboats

Canal Motorboats is one of the cheapest boat rentals in Amsterdam. You can choose between 2 different boats, the green and the blue boat. Both have a different rate, layout and way of steering. This way you can decide which boat suits your needs and you won’t pay too much.

Green boat price

The green boat is an electric motorboat with an outboard motor. You can steer the boat yourself by means of a tiller. The boat has 4 benches in a row which can accommodate 7 people in total. You can rent the green boat for at least 1 hour on Monday to Friday. On Saturday and Sunday, the minimum boat rental time is 2 hours.

  • 1 hour: €50 (Mon-Fri only)
  • 2 hours: €90
  • Each subsequent hour: €30 per hour

Super Deal: Temporarily €70 instead of €90 for 2 hours from Monday to Friday

Blue boat price

The blue boat is just like the green boat, but is slightly larger and has room for 8 people. You can steer the boat yourself by means of a steering wheel instead of a tiller. The boat has benches along the side of the boat. You can hire the blue boat for 2 hours or longer.

  • Starting rate: €100 for 2 hours
  • Each subsequent hour: €50 per hour

Super Deal: Temporarily €80 instead of €100 for 2 hours from Monday to Friday

We hope that this does not happen, but should it happen we charge €30,- for each 15 minutes late. Do you think you will be late? In that case, call us immediately.

No, it is forbidden to go on the IJ with the boat.

No, you don't need an insurance. We have our own insurance. You do have to pay an excess of maximum €250 in case of accident or damage, provided that you report the damage or accident to us immediately. Please note: do you not report the damage immediately, do you not abide by the rules as stated in the general terms and conditions or does damage occur due to misbehaviour and not following the instructions of the staff? Then you are not insured and you are liable for the full amount of the damage. This can be more than the excess of €250. The amount will be settled afterwards.
