What can you see and do on a yacht charter in Amsterdam?

There’s so much to see and do in Amsterdam and because so much of the city is characterised by water, a boat hire is the best way to get around and take everything in. Whether you’re looking for something cultural, relaxed or full of excitement, you’ll find it in Amsterdam. Here are some of our favourite things to do in this enchanting city.

  • Get a taste of culture on the Museumplein, home to world-renowned museums like Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and the Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art. Further explore the Oud Zuid neighbourhood and see the open-air art exhibititions and green squares where you can sit back, and relax.
  • Stroll around the streets of Jordaan, one of the nicest neighbourhoods in Amsterdam. Here you’ll find an array of cafes, restaurants, bars and quiet courtyards perfect for sitting and chatting with locals.
  • Cruise the canals and see the picturesque architecture, hundreds of floating houseboats and over 1,500 bridges, which is four times as many as the city of Venice!
  • Explore a secret annexe at the Anne Frank House and view the indelible mark that the Nazi Occupation left on the Netherlands.
  • Take a day trip to Zandvoort aan Zee, and relax on the golden sands of Amsterdam’s beach.

What is the best time to rent a boat in Amsterdam?

Amsterdam is classified as an oceanic climate which is characterised by warm, pleasant summers and cold, dry winters. The best time for a yacht charter in Amsterdam is in the spring between March and May. During these months the average temperature is 12°C with low humidity and precipitation, the perfect conditions for a smooth sailing getaway! Tulips also bloom in the springtime which makes Amsterdam a very sought-after spring destination.

Where can I dock my Amsterdam boat hire?

There are plenty of marinas located in the heart of Amsterdam in which you can securely dock your boat hire but be aware that mooring your vessel in the city costs money. You’ll have to pay a harbour fee or “binnenhavengeld” if you wish to dock in the city centre. Some popular marinas include Sixhaven Jachthaven, Den Helder Yacht Marina, and Boating Club Amsterdam.

Consider a yacht charter in Amsterdam with a skipper!

At Click&Boat we’ve got a large fleet of vessels ready for hire including bareboat rentals and those which include a skipper or crew on board. We always recommend having a skipper on board your private boat hire in order to have a relaxing and worry-free holiday. Skippers will handle all of the boating logistics and the best part is that they are usually locals who can show you all of the hidden spots in Amsterdam and surrounding areas! Even if you have a boating licence a skipper can add an extra sense of security to your sailing trip and they can even show you some tips and tricks for navigating the vessel. Hire a boat with a skipper in Amsterdam for an unforgettable trip!

What type of boat is best for my boat hire in Amsterdam?

If you are considering a private boat hire in Amsterdam but are unsure about which type of vessel to choose, the answer will depend on the sort of holiday you’re looking to have. For a shorter boat trip, you might want to hire a RIB or a motorboat as they are typically rented by the day or even for a half day. They also go faster than other vessels which makes it possible to travel long distances on a time crunch.

If you’re an avid sailor you might like to hire a sailboat in order to get the authentic sailing experience, though they aren’t recommended for people who get seasick easily! For people who are prone to seasickness, we recommend hiring a catamaran as they are double-hulled and more stable than other vessels. Finally, if you’re looking to have a holiday on the water that the whole family can enjoy, we recommend hiring a houseboat as they are spacious and they include amenities that can accommodate everyone in the group. The other great thing about houseboats is that they typically have heat on board, making them the perfect choice for cruising through the canals in chilly weather. Whichever type of boat you choose, Click&Boat has got what you need to plan the sailing trip of a lifetime!

Beautiful city, light festival was interesting and light-full. A lot of lights on the houses, hotels, streets and shops. Very nice Christmas atmosphere (but keep in mind there is no Christmas markets like in Germany). Iceskating of a good quality (unfortunately weather conditions were not very good so we didn’t want to skate during the heavy rein).
