Unique Surinam Adventure Boat for tours
A canal adventure in the Amsterdam Lake Area
- Adventure - be the captain of your next destination
- Travel over the water
- Safe canal boating
- Visit historic cities by boat
This boat is more basic than basic! If you understand what I mean. It is very sturdy and can take some scratches. It is build in Surinam from inland wood. It has a quiet - easy to handle - 10HP Yamaha outboard engine that will bring you anywhere. Under the roof in the front you can have a quiet sleep, away from mosquitos. Cooking is outside, In case of rain the roof can be extended to keep you and the gaz burner dry. There are 4 camping matrasses provided. Bring your own sleeping bags. A chemical toilet will help you to get rid of what you want to loose.
The boat is 12,5 m long and 2m wide. It can take you on a tour around the former Beemster Lake (nowadays an UNESCO status area) and other former lakes to visit the countryside or several small year 1700 historic cities like De Rijp, Edam, Zaandam and Monnickendam. Or cities like Alkmaar and Purmerend . Or the De Woude island. There are good harbour (shower/toilet) facilities everywhere in these places.
But maybe you like to spent the night in the quietness of the canal, all by yourself.
How to get there
By car: follow A7 or N247 (more sceneric than A7) then N243 in direction Avenhorn/Alkmaar. Near Avenhorn follow Grosthuizen/Oudendijk and follow Oudendijk.
About the area
It is countryside in the middle of North Holland. All attractive places can be reached by car in an hour. I personally like wandering around in Hoorn or Edam. Both have a harbour and canals and lots of historic buildings and a museum. Compared to Amsterdam it is rather quiet there.
Hello, when i was a kid I already wanted to spend the night on the water in a little boat. I had to grow up to realise this dream. Though the boat is a little bigger than in my kids time I still enjoy being on the water. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do!
