  • Always sail at the right side of the water. Professional boats and tour boats always have priority on the water. Keep that in mind.
  • No loud music, pay attention to your surroundings.

How long does the battery last during a trip?
No worries. Our boats operate up to 10-12 hours -without charging- at an average use (60 AMP)! This means they will be rented out several times on a day. If for any reason the battery runs low on power the boat is equiped with a safety system and emergency power. The system will gradually lower the power to make sure you‘ll get back safely but in a very low pace (2km/h). If the boat suddenly stops operating you probably ‘hit’ a rope or plastic bag with the propellor. Unfortunately this is quite common when sailing through the canals. In any case just call us (+31(0)85-4019555) so we can help you out with some additional instructions on how to easily solve the problem together.

What to do in case of damage?
If you take the curves calmly, slow down in time, the risk of damage is extremely small (also be careful with the reverse direction near the edge – the propeller is very fragile!). The sloops do not sail fast, so the chance of real damage is not great. If it does happen – someone else can also be the cause – always call us (see contact page). Record the details of the counterparty. Also make a damage report with a situation sketch and according to you the cause of the problem.

Corona Precautions

With who can I do a boat trip?2020-07-28T07:40:03+01:00

You can have a boat trip with whoever you want, as long as you maintain a mutual distance of 1.5 meter (5ft) between different households. This means, that when you’re not a household together, you have to maintain a mutual distance of 1.5 meter between friends, families, family and grandparents, two sets of partners, etc. This is quite possible on our spacious boats for 2 household with 2 persons or 3 households with 1 person. (4 or more households are not allowed in one boat). Please mind that both police and municipal enforcers are keeping an eye on the canals, so please stick to the precautions to prevent high fines.

Can I rent a boat at Greenjoy?2020-04-06T15:41:22+01:00

Yes, we are open. We have adjusted our cleaning and planning so that the boats are clean every day and you do not have to meet other tenants. However, there is an important responsibility for you as a tenant, read the corona measures. And ofcourse stick to the rules of the RIVM!

What can I do to assure a safe boat trip?2020-05-29T15:55:40+01:00

Prepare well and bring your own disinfectant wipes to clean the electricity plug, the steering wheel and the throttle before AND after the boat trip to eliminate unnecessary risks for you and other tenants. Also make sure to maintain a mutual distance of at least 1.5 meters (5 feet) between different households.

What does Greenjoy do to assure a safe boat trip?2020-04-12T19:05:15+01:00

Greenjoy ensures that the boats are extra cleaned both in the morning and in the evening. In particular it disinfects the contact parts: the electricity plug, the steering wheel and the throttle. Moreover, Greenjoy attempts to make sure to block one hour before AND after your boat trip, to make sure you do not have to meet other tenants.

Why is it so important to follow up these precautions?2020-04-06T15:39:14+01:00

Being on a boat is a very safe way to get some air. However, only if we work together to ensure that the boats remain clean and disinfected and that we stick to the rules. If this does not happen, the mayor may decide to ban boat rental.

What if I don’t follow the precautions?2020-04-12T18:47:54+01:00

Both police and municipal enforcers are keeping an eye on the canals. When they notice the RIVM precautions to be violated on your boat, every passenger will be fined € 390. So that would be a very expensive boat trip. So please obey and don’t take unnecessary risks, there already are several tenants fined because they did not satisfy the precautions. We also keep an eye on you, together with our contacts along the canals. If we notice that the precautions are not complied with, we are forced to withhold the deposit. This is a very tedious procedure, but you have to understand that we also want to guarantee a safe situation for other tenants.
