Our Mokum (Amsterdam) is beautiful, especially when viewed from the water! Friends Marcel, Martijn, and Michael spent a lot of time on the water together, wanting to share the liberating feeling of the Amsterdam canals with as many people as possible. In 2009, Mokumboot was born, offering boat rentals where you could be your own captain. Today, Mokumboot is a proud and well-established name in Amsterdam, with boat rentals available at nine locations throughout the city.

In 2024, Mokumboot embarks on a new canal adventure, showcasing the Amsterdam canals from open boats. Along the way, we share insights about our city and typical Mokum anecdotes.

Our goal is to provide each guest and renter with a unique Amsterdam experience, achieved by creating joy ourselves. We thrive on informality, friendliness, and constant evolution. We take pride in Mokum(boot)!

  • Distinguishing and informative historical narratives on board;
