Boat Rental business with 15 boats in Amsterdam - Boats4Rent

Boats4rent is an Amsterdam boat rental company. They have a fleet of 15 self-drive electric boats for the Amsterdam canals and the Amstel river.

All of the boats are equipped with Combi Nautic Saildrive Motors, Fronius Chargers and Trojans semi traction deep cycle batteries.
Boats4rent decided to go for our CN 1000 POD’s. Boats4rent founder and owner Jan Pieter Groeneveld explains: “We want everyone to be safe. So our engines needs to be robust and reliable. The CN 1000 is the perfect fit for us. It has sufficient power and it’s very efficient, so we can rent our boats all day long without charging them between shifts.

The reason we decided to go for built-in POD’s is to prevent our engines from being stolen.” Boast4rent started their boat rental business in 2013, so their engines have been running for quite some time. What is their experience? Jan Pieter Groeneveld: “We have found the engines to be very solid, reliable and low on maintenance. And our guests like the easy handling and the fact they’re silent, so they can have a good conversation while cruising the canals”.
