Saloon boat De Stern - electric powered
Experience the glory of yesteryear, corporate salon boat the Stern: of the board of the Royal Dutch Steamboat Company
After a thorough restoration, the Stern is back in service. It is now part of the Private Boat Tours’ fleet, which is located next to the foot of the Montelbaan tower, our office and home port on the Oudeschans in Amsterdam.
The Stern is available for rent for exclusive cruises for groups of 2 to 12 people. For example, for refreshing drinks, afternoon tea, buffet or a classic three-course dinner (served on board by various top cuisines).
“The beautiful Stern, the smallest bird in our fleet", said the Royal Dutch Steamboat Company about their beautiful salon boat. The board and office employees held office in the Scheepvaarthuis (Shipping House) along the Prins Hendrikkade. The loading and unloading company of the KNSM was then located on the IJ-island (the present KNSM Island). Up until 1964, the Stern transported the board of the KNSM every day. Before the cessation of the activities by the KNSM in 1981, the board used the Stern as a salon boat for special cruises with their guests.
