We saw your boat passing by while we were sitting by the canal one evening and I knew I had to experience this! We had the best evening (2-hour cruise) and could not wish for more. I highly recommend Terrasboot and their crew. We will come back to Utrecht and join Terrasboot again! [...]

Great experience on this 'boat', which was better than an average boat. We were really lucky with the weather and could bring our 2 babies and strollers on board. I would definitely recommend it. It's so spacious and comfortable. [...]

Probably the best activity in Utrecht. I loved the freedom and relaxation that this boat offered (since you can book it with your own group and then you're set for a great time). Would definitely recommend. As the name suggests: it's like sitting on a terrace, which is also a boat; honestly, a great idea. [...]


Meet Quinten, Yves, and Thomas: three students at Utrecht University who have a passion for their city Utrecht. After having sailed the canals themselves often enough, they started to get bored with the normal boats that were available for rent. That was the moment they decided to create something new and unique: the terrace boat. The terrace boat is ideal for a relaxed and cozy outing on the canals of Utrecht. The unique concept of the boat offers the opportunity to enjoy a snack and drink while you cruise quietly and explore the beautiful city of Utrecht. And the best part of all? You can do all this without having to worry about whether you can hear each other over the noise of the motor, as the terrace boat is equipped with a whisper-quiet electric motor.
