The Admiral Heijn is the first electric saloon boat in Amsterdam. So special that the ceremonial ship launching in 1996 was done by the mayor of Amsterdam.

The saloon boat is built according to the Venetian model and therefore wider than other boats, so you can easily pass each other inside. High enough to stand in, low enough to sail even under the lowest bridges. We can therefore offer you a special cruise through the Jordaan area where we’ll cruise all the small, unknown canals.

The Admiral Heijn has a beautiful mahogany structure. The faceted windows offer a good view of Amsterdam. Ideal for sunbathing on the splendid teakwood bow or stern decks, but also pleasant inside during ‘typical Dutch weather’ in a covered, heated saloon with the availability of warm, woolen blankets.

Thanx to the spacious saloon, the Admiral Heijn is ideal for a small business meeting, for a fantastic private cruise to discover Amsterdam the best, and intimate enough for a romantic trip for two lovers. Marriage proposals aboard this saloon boat have all been answered with YES.

We can provide you with delicious drinks during the cruise and have extensive catering options. We will gladly inform you about the possibilities or let us know your wishes. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy your boat tour to the fullest!
