My home - My ship I will welcome no more then 6 guests onboard my home and ship "drift away" Solar power + all electric propulsion = zero emmision. Dual purposely build for the amsterdam canals and year-round home. Living and sailing on the sun? Yeah i know, that's really sunthing! ;-) The walk Due to the unique custom design of the vessel in height, width and draft we can sail even through the smallest of canals, were the big boats can't go, and thats were we are going to focus on. The talk Lets introduce one to another and have a conversation. Amsterdam has enough moral controversy, I like to hear what you think, what do you want to know more about? There is no limit to the conversation, feel free to ask me anything about anything of your intrest.... It's not about what I want to tell you, but what do you want to know... Tell me your perspective and understanding of the culture or history in and I will share my perspective and knowlegde with you. This tour is not meant for everyone... If you like to meet as strangers, let me show you the canals, pour you a drink, have an intresting conversation and a decent laugh, enjoy the moment, depart as friends. This is it!
I'm Boudewijn, my name is as Dutch as my upbringing is "Amsterdams". Can't pronounce my name; try saying "bottle of wine" very fast. Born and raised on the Prinsengracht. As a young boy I rowed, swam and sometimes even drunk the canal water, as a defiant teenager I was tought some disiplince at a nautical military boarding school in the UK, during my university years I was a pirate on the canals (don't tell anyone) and sailing as a licensed captain for tripadvisors best. The canals are my home. With the "Drift Away" I live on the canals zero-emmision self-sufficient rent-free.
Full coffee &tea selection, softdrinks, Heineken & local specialty beer. Local liqour & International bar & single malt
We will sail a custom route through the smaller canals, look for the hidden gems and intresting historical sites. Touristy areas will be mostly avioded, yet we will pass the main great sites such as seven bridges, dancing houses etc..
