That seems like a lot of fun: to own a small boat in Amsterdam. Go cruising along the beautiful canals of Amsterdam. Romantic boat trips on a beautiful summer evening enjoying a beer or glass of wine. Who wouldn’t want that?

Well, after a couple showers – and in Holland it seems to rain every other day – your precious vessel is full of water. And then what? This is what. A tribute to the half sunken, the almost sunken and the definitely sunken little boats of Amsterdam.


Leuk, zo’n bootje in de Amsterdamse grachten. Lekker varen op een mooie zomerse avond met een pilsje of een glaasje rose erbij. Maar na een paar fikse regenbuien staat het ding vol water en wat dan? Gezonken Bootje laat zien wat dan. Een ode aan de half gezonken, bijna gezonken en beslist gezonken bootjes van Amsterdam… en alles wat verder nog in het water drijft.


Gezonken Bootje is open for submissions. Please mail us your gezonken bootje picture and tell us, to the best of your knowledge, place, time, status and possible the name of the boat.
