History of the Najade

The Najade is a slender saloon boat that was built in 1907 in Groningen by order of Mr. H.E Oving. After years of private ownership, the boat was sold to the “Wilhelmine Victoria” coal association. After thorough restoration, the Najade has been sailing in and around Amsterdam since 1999. It has a maximum capacity of 18 people and a maximum dinner capacity of 10 people.

Najade voorzijde


The benches of the Najade are upholstered with royal blue velvet. The boat has a warm teak paneling. On board you will find a well-stocked bar. A music system with the possibility to connect your own telephone is present. Of course a toilet is not missing. You will find a traditional smoking area at the rear; the so-called cigar room.

Book a boat with a guide?

A boat trip in the Amsterdam Canals is an experience and there is no need for a guide on board to enjoy the tranquility of the water, the architecture along the shores and the highlights on the canals. But maybe you and your party have sailed more often in the center and you want to offer your guests some extras this time.

In that case you can make your boat trip even more special by hiring a professional guide who tells everything about the history of the city, the architecture and interesting facts about its UNESCO heritage.
