Amsterdam Barber Boat

Sometimes you’ve got to treat yourself… Let us introduce the Amsterdam Barber Boat!

Work hard, play hard is our mantra so after a really busy start to the summer at Starboard Boats, we decided to organise a boys’ day out with a difference – complete with whisky, beers, cigars and one of the best barbers in town we went on a classic Amsterdam boat tour, with a twist!

When you’re constantly welcoming guests to Amsterdam, it’s important to always look your best, and there’s something special about getting a fresh cut from a true professional.  

Never being people to do anything in half-measures, we decided to take things up a gear in the name of pure hedonism. We boarded our Amsterdam Barber Boat, cracked open a few bottles and sat back in the summer sunshine, drink and cigar in hand, to enjoy taking some time out for a bit of good old-fashioned pampering.  

Running a busy boat company doesn’t leave much time to relax, so, teaming up with a couple of the city’s best barbers from the recently opened Elandsgracht barbershop, ‘The Barberhood’, we were all really excited to set sail on the Amsterdam Barber Boat.

Alternative ways to enjoy the Amsterdam Canals 

It’s always great to team up with other local companies, and whether we’re working together for a day of plastic fishing or sitting back with our friends, sharing a glass of whisky and treating ourselves to a fresh new haircut, Starboard Boats always looks to get the best out of the beautiful canal belt that runs through the city we call home.  

After all, Amsterdam has more than 100km of canals to explore and we love getting out onto the water as much as possible to enjoy the city from a variety of alternative perspectives. This is one of the beautiful things about Amsterdam – the canals are so much more than simply a piece of history or the background of a postcard. Each and every day, people enjoy them in so many different ways and we love sharing unique experiences on the water with people from around the world as well as those from our neighbourhoods. 

Whether it’s a day of spoiling ourselves on the Amsterdam Barber Boat, or getting some friends together for a BBQ with a twist, the possibilities are endless. For a customised boat event or tour you can contact us here – we offer the flexibility to offer a whole range of Amsterdam sailing experiences and look forward to showing you a new perspective on the canals which have been such an important part of Amsterdam life for centuries!
