A Praam is a flat bottom boat which were used all around the country all through out history. A Praam was used for agricultural products, peet, Cattle, reed, etc. and this type of boat would get you through areas with shallow water. Nowadays this type of boat is loved for its authentic design and being very stable. Mathilda's Praam is propelled by an electric outboard motor which makes it noiseless and doesn't produce any harmful fumes. Enjoy this cute boat with max 4 people and explore the beautiful area near to Ouderkerk a/d Amstel. And after your day out on the Amstel have a drink or a bite at Amstelzijde with numerous restaurants and terraces.

Highly recommend

"We loved this boat trip. The best one we have done in Amsterdam and all because of Brian. Was a lovely host/captain, we had such a cool time. Would book it again for sure, highly recommend. Amazing experience and wonderful trip"


"Very informative relaxed cruise. Lots of information from an enthusiastic local. The boat has some roof which was great as it was a very hot day so nice to spend some time in the shade. Another great point - the boat is electric!!. No noise, and no fumes."
