Saloon boat Elvira was built in 1938 to serve as a ferry over the Swiss lakes. She has been sailing around the Netherlands since 1998. Amsterdam has been the home base since 2016. The elegance and panoramic view give this ship its special character. The Elvira has been renovated in 2020. We are very proud with the result. There is more space, light and visibility. She is now more suitable for all seasons with a spacious aft deck that can ben completely opened during good weather to ejoy the fresh air. The Elvira can sail in all possible weather conditions. She is also equipped with radar, so that the cruise can still take place in reduced visibility. We can sail on the Amstel, IJmeer and Vecht.
