“Amsterdam - hire your own boat - amazing fun!”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

We have been to Amsterdam many times as my wife's family come from their. However, this is the first time we've hired our own boat and it was without doubt our best experience from Amsterdam, ever!

The boats from www.boathireamsterdam.com are electric and easy to drive. they're also metal so if you do hit anything you'll be fine!

We had a boat seating 6 and this cost E110 for 3 hours which was just about long enough to zip round the canal network in the centre. Also really good value for money.

The tourist boat trips are great but this takes canal travel in Amsterdam to a whole new level. Grab yourself some snacks, a bottle of wine (or two) and have the best time ever sailing around the canals seeing the true beauty of this amazing city.

“Lovely afternoon spent on the canals”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

Myself and three colleagues are in Amsterdam for work and we decided to find a boat for our day off. Mokum had a southern location near our apartments and so we went for them. It was a brilliant afternoon in the sun. nice quiet boat with just the right top speed that took us all over the centre of Amsterdam.

Highly recommended.

“Great boats for rent”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

We've been a big group of international people from all over the world for a Queens day in Amsterdam! Was too late to rent a boats and all renters were sooooo unfriendly and rude by saying "ohhww...you are too late. Where have you been half a year ago??"....?! ...what?
Anyway MokumBoat team were very understanding, helpful and supportive! We got a boat. And they even managed to organize the second one after more people wanted to join us!
On the day it self the boats were ready and all instructions provided very clearly and with a big patience! ;-)
The boats are very comfortable, easy drive and ...cozy!
Fulfilled with soft pillows to sit on, easy driving wheel and enough space for 8-10 people.
Highly recommend it for anybody in person, groups etc.
