In our terminology, riverboats and canal boats are just two different words for the same thing; a motorized boat that you can drive and live in. You don’t need any boat experience or papers to rent and use these boats.
Some compare a riverboat to a caravan on water. Here you’ll find equipment to meet all your basic needs. All our riverboats have electricity, running water, a small kitchenette (often running on gas), at least one bathroom, and bedding. In that way, you’ll be self-sufficient, and it is entirely up to you where you want to go as long as you comply with the local boat legislation and is at the designated starting and end base before the agreed-upon time.
At the starting base, you’ll receive a thorough introduction to the boat and its features. The base personnel will also show you how to navigate the boat through a canal lock and how to moor the boat.
In general, there are two types of riverboats; cruisers and narrowboats. Here you can read our tips for choosing the right one for you.
