Salon Boat

Lady of Amstel

The Dame van Amstel was restored in 2004 by Rederij Belle for luxury cruising. The sailing area is Amsterdam, the Amstel, the Vecht and surrounding waters. The ship has a classic look, with all the stylish details of the 1920s. The salon boat can accommodate 50 to 75 people.

Interior designer Myrthe Stam of Co van der Horst gave the interior a refit. Based on the premise of preserving the ship’s classic values and providing it with sleek, high-end furnishings and styling. The redesign used classic and modern elements and materials.

In this way, an interesting field of tension was created in terms of material, color and design. The ship is flexible in layout and equipped to provide you with contemporary luxuries and excellent catering during your cruise.

The Dame van Amstel is Amsterdam’s largest salon boat with by far the best amenities. Including a Pavoni Espresso machine, a richly stocked bar with the finest wines and Champagnes, 2 toilets and central heating. This makes the salon boat particularly suitable for seminars, presentations, parties and business meetings. Her generous size makes the ship the venue of choice for an on-board wedding.

Luxury boat arrangements for special occasions

Cruise through Amsterdam, on the Amstel or the Vecht

Our salon boat Dame van Amstel sails through Amsterdam as well as on the Amstel and the Vecht: two beautiful rivers with a character all their own. On the Vecht, you cruise past countless country houses and small castles, often surrounded by the lushest gardens with exuberant hydrangeas. You will pass small tea domes, cute bridges and the most beautiful villages.

The Amstel River flows between Amsterdam and Uithoorn. Still in Amsterdam, the cruise leads past highlights of the city, such as the Magere Brug and theater Carré. Further out on the Amstel, you sail past the picturesque towns of Ouderkerk aan de Amstel and Nes aan de Amstel. The river is relatively high here, so you are “sailing higher,” so to speak, than the surrounding pastures and farms. That alone is a unique experience.

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 53 people

The Lady of Amstel salon boat can carry up to 80 people. For a seated dinner at the table or a sumptuous buffet, the maximum is 53 people. If you want to sit at one long table with your party, the maximum number of people is 24.

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
