Use code "IamExpat" to get a 10% discount on Amsterdam boat rental with Starboard Boats!

A boat trip is a highlight of many visitors’ time in Amsterdam, but boarding a crammed tourist canal cruise boat with hundreds of people jostling for the perfect photo, and a generic, audio-guide explanation of the city that you call home, is a nightmare for many expats...

There is, however, another option for boat rental that Amsterdam expats have been snapping up (after all, cruising Amsterdam’s beautiful canals isn’t just for tourists – it's a popular social activity which is loved by many locals during the summer months!)...

Explore the Amsterdam canals in luxury

Starboard Boats offer flexible boat rentals complete with a professional skipper and host, allowing you to explore Amsterdam's canals in luxury and comfort.

Whether you’re showing visiting friends around the city or celebrating a special occasion in style, Starboard Boats provides the best boat rental Amsterdam has to offer for expats, visitors and locals alike.

Leaving the steering to the professionals allows you to spend less time marching your visitors around like a tour guide, and more time sitting back with a drink and enjoying the ride with your friends!

Corporate events

Starboard’s luxury electric boat is fitted with heated cushions and a retractable cover for when the weather turns bad – which, as we all know, is a pretty regular occurrence in Amsterdam - making after-work get-togethers or corporate events possible no matter what the weather is like.

Tailored cruises

When it comes to providing tailored cruises for your group, Starboard always remains as flexible as possible. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday with an unlimited drinks package or showing family the sights on a relaxed tour through the canal belt’s hidden gems, Starboard Boats has got your group’s requirements covered.

For expats living in Amsterdam, the main benefit of booking with a company like Starboard Boats is their ability to customise your cruise to make it more personal, so you can show your guests the city that you now call home from a more local perspective than would be possible with many other boat cruise providers. If you’re wanting to enjoy some delicious food and premium drinks on board, for example, or to show your guests specific parts of the city, this can all be arranged!
