Classic Boat – Schollevaar

Beautifully renovated salon boat from 1912

A Truly Classic Boat with a Modern Touch

Our beautifully renovated classic boat Schollevaar was originally built in 1912, and relaunched as a fully electric canal cruiser by the Pure Boats team in 2019. This one of a kind, classic canal boat has been showing her guests a good time in Amsterdam for over 100 years, and continues to do so with her classically elegant, long flowing lines and all the modern features you would expect from a luxury canal boat. She has a large outside open seating area for up to twelve guests, as well as an inside saloon with a large open-air sun roof, comfortable seating, bar and wc.

Schollevaar is both wonderfully romantic, and classically photogenic. Sit out on the stylised deck, enjoy the panoramic view and take in the magical scenery.

About Schollevaar

Our classic boat Schollevaar is our most popular boat for smaller luxury canal cruises, specialties include proposals (link) and day charters with families. No surprise here, as this beautiful classic boat was built in 1912 as a ‘notarisboot’ to take wealthy clients and groups around the Amsterdam canals, or be used by notaries and other prestigious professionals to entertain their partners. The latest addition to this already beautiful boat is the sunroof, which has impacted the seating inside greatly! The saloon is now even more spacious and light – in short the perfect private location for some drinks while the city glides by.
