The Service
Whether dining with corporate clients or enjoying drinks with friends on that special occasion, the Ondine offers the exclusivity of your own small cruise ship.
Imagine sailing along Amsterdam’s 17th century canals or surrounding waterways with the finest food and wine available.
The Ondine provides the perfect ambiance for indulging yourself and your guests on your way to a restaurant or as the location for the rendez-vous itself.
Our expertise and experience combined with the collaboration of some of Amsterdam’s leading establishments enable us to offer you a unique atmosphere for your entertaining.

The Launch
Built in 1909, the Ondine was designed for both private and business use. Her original owner was a prosperous Dutch timber merchant who demanded quality. This is reflected in the superb Javanese teak used for the saloon.
Turn-of-the-century saloon launches are sleek and low to pass quickly and easily under bridges. Yet the Ondine has exceptional headroom since the owner insisted gentlemen should be able to wear their top hats inside.
Several owners later, the Ondine is back in Amsterdam where she was designed by Mr.Sibbelee and built at the famous Kromhout Wharf when run by the widow Ceuvels.

The Availability
The Ondine can be charted year round by the hour or by the day. The maximum capacity is 30. Up to 16 people can be comfortably accommodated for a sit-down dinner. Catering possibilities range from a simple aperitif to haute cuisine featuring courses from different restaurants. There is a standard bar on board including draught beer. Your special requests are welcomed. We will be happy to make you an offer tailored to your specific wishes. Major credit cards are accepted. Reservations can be made directly or through your hotel reception.
