About Punterwerf Wildeboer
Punterwerf Wildeboer traditional boat rental In Giethoorn North, one of the last two surviving ‘punter’ boatyards of Giethoorn can be found. The love for these handcrafted oak-wood boats, handed down from generation to generation. Our boats are built with extra width and higher sides, creating more room within the boat and making it safer. In that way the boat takes in less water while on the lakes and when the wind picks up. The boats are equipped with roomy chests for you to sit on and stow away your possessions, placed opposite each other for ease of conversation! We’re happy to provide you with cushions, and on nippy days we’ll give you a nice warm fleece blanket to keep you snug and comfortable. The ‘punter’ can seat 8 people and being built of oak it is very stable in the water. Clearly – the perfect boat to rent! Experience the Weerribben-Wieden National Park, a breath-taking area full of wildlife, from the water. This boat costs €25 per hour, or € 125 per day (8 ours)

Henk Wildeboar makes these handcrafted boats and gives you a map to navigate the canals. He was very friendly and charged us the correct amount when we came back. Best price in the area. We had a great trip and the children enjoyed it too.

3 wonderful days in perfect traditional punterboat made of wood. We went by canals into the nature with picturesque villages and into likewise picturesque Giethoorn and surroundings - super service and great advice. The price (and especially the boat) was even better than “downtown” Giethoorn (south).

I guess you don’t visit picturesque Giethoorn without taking atour on the canals. There are plenty of different types of boats(punters) but my strong recommendation is that you go for these beautiful handicrafts wooden punters. They are both beautiful, fantastic crafts and also very nice and romantic with there red-white table clothes. To cruise on these wonderful canals in a coloured aluminium boat is not the same ’. Ywonne and Henrik was also very nice and helpful.

We were there on a beautiful Wednesday afternoon in July. Rented this lovely boat for about 2 1/2 hours. Absolutely stunning sights. Fortunately we didn't rent the boat until about 4 pm so the canals were not very busy. We appreciated the beauty of these wooden boats instead of the metal ones that are so popular. Highly recommend this place.
