So you don’t have to rent a sloop for the whole day. You can decide for yourself how long you want to cruise the canals. In addition, we offer 2 different sloops. The price differs per sloop.

You’re the captain

You don’t need a license when you rent a sloop with us. You can steer the sloop yourself. The sloops have a maximum speed of 6.5 km per hour and are easy to steer. Don’t worry, you don’t need any experience to be a captain on one of our sloops. We’ll provide you with all the necessary information before departure.

A good captain is someone who:

  • Adheres to the Amsterdam canal rules
  • Always gives way to commercial shipping and boats that are bigger
  • Always stays on the right side of the canal
  • Reduces speed at bridges and bends
  • Gives priority to smaller vessels on the right
  • Comply with the maximum speed limit.
  • Checks the rules of navigation
