Salon Boat


The Adeline originally served in Germany as a salon tour boat for tourists visiting the Siebengebirge Mountains. The boat made round trips on the Rhine and at the time could accommodate 150 people. The ship later fell into disrepair. Jan Huisman of Amsterdam bought up the ship and gradually trimmed the steelwork. In 2006, Rederij Belle acquired the Adeline and completed the final part of the restoration.

alonboat Adeline has been restored entirely in 1920s atmosphere, complete with stylish original details. The ship is also fully equipped to provide you with contemporary comfort and excellent catering during your cruise.
The Adeline is the largest saloon boat that can cruise the Amsterdam canals and can accommodate parties of 20 to 60 people.

Luxury boat arrangements for special occasions

Cruise through the canals of Amsterdam

Amsterdam’s ring of canals is a unique world-class monument and was awarded a place on the Unesco World Heritage List in 2010 for good reason. Amsterdam’s ring of canals was built during the Golden Age and grew into a distinctive environment where many wealthy financiers from the world of commerce settled. This can still be seen today in the richly decorated buildings on Singel, Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht. A cruise through this special part of Amsterdam is a highlight for the many (international) visitors who visit Amsterdam daily.

With the salon boat Adeline, you can take a cruise through this area. In consultation with the captain, you can plan your own route through the canals. This will take you to places in the ring of canals during your cruise where regular canal boats do not go. We can also arrange for a guide on board, who will provide a detailed explanation of the origins of Amsterdam and its canals.

Cruising routes

Besides the canals of Amsterdam, there are several beautiful routes, such as Breukelen – Loosdrecht, Breukelen – Oud-Zuilen, Muiden – Vreeland and Uithoorn – Amsterdam. Check out where the boating routes in Amsterdam the boating routes on the Vecht and the boating routes on the Amstel take you.

Dining with 50 people

The salon boat Adeline can carry up to 60 people. For a seated dinner at the table or a sumptuous buffet, the maximum is 50 people.

Wedding on board

The Vecht is known for its romance. The many beautiful wedding venues on the banks of the Vecht are proof of that. In most municipalities through which the Vecht flows, you can get married with the officiant aboard our ship.


Beauty is on the outside and inside
