Aemstelland boat company

affordable luxury

Since the start of Rederij Aemstelland, in the year 2000, you can rent a (salon) boat with captain from us for a cruise in Amsterdam and the surrounding area. Hospitality and listening to the wishes of our guests in combination with comfortable classic ships is what we stand for.

We are very grateful for the many loyal customers who find us again and again and who also have an opinion about us. With a beautiful 5 star score on google and tripadvisor, we are among the top cruise companies in Amsterdam. That means, among other things, that we will remain flexible and serviceminded. With a great team, we do everything we can to make that happen every day and make every cruise a special event.

Environmentally friendly

Due to new regulations in the city of Amsterdam, all passenger boats that cruise the canals have to be emission-free as of 2025. Many other companies use boats that are still using engines that run on fossil fuels like diesel. These boats have to be refitted in the coming years to comply with the new regulations.

Aemstelland private boat company recently changed its engine of the boat Elisabeth and the boat became fully electric. 64 batteries and a 10 KW engine were installed into the smallest salon boat of the fleet. This ensures a minimum of 14 hours of silent cruising. In 2015 Aemstelland became the first canal boat company in the Netherlands to receive a green key certification and holds the gold status.
