The Tijd zal het Leeren, built in 1914, served as a sailing freighter for agricultural products in the northern Netherlands. After serving as a residential ship, the Tijd zal het Leeren returned to service in 2000, but now as a passenger ship in Amsterdam. The sails of yesteryear have given way to battery-powered electric propulsion. This is just as quiet as sailing and more practical in a city with many bridges.

Convertible roof for any type of weather

We have a roof that can be adapted to every type of weather. Depending on the weather we can open or close the boat rapidly.

In winter an extra canvas is put over the top to keep the warmth inside. And if it gets really cold, we have a heating system that can be put into action.

The tables and seats can be flexibly employed for both a sitting dinner or a drinks and snacks trip with standing tables, or even a switch from one to the other during the trip.


The boat rental is € 325,- per hour (incl. VAT). This includes a captain and a sailing waiter/waitress.

For safety and service an extra sailing waiter/waitress is employed from 25 people  and up at € 36 per hour (incl. VAT).

The minimal sailing time is 2 hours.

For every event on the water a fee is due to the municipality tax of Amsterdam of €1,55 per person.
