The Flagship boat Undine - a floating monument from 1920

On a sunny summer day, it is wonderful to be on the open deck. If it’s raining, the boat can be closed completely and at cooler temperatures we just switch on the heating! At every moment of the day and regardless the weather conditions, this luxury boat will guarantee you the best private boat tour experience in Amsterdam. Unlike in other boats, the Undine does not count to starboard boats, as the steering is situated in the middle of the boat.
