Coffeeshops on Boats/Barges

Post by RoMoney » Mon 15th Jul 2019 10:59 am

Since my recent trip to Den Haag and in particular my visit to Happy Smiles Coffeeshop (https://www.coffeeshopdirect.com/HappySmile.html), which is on a boat, it got me thinking about the last time I visited a Coffeeshop on a boat in Maastricht in 2010 (https://www.coffeeshopdirect.com/Mississipi.html). When I was posting about this on Instagram some people messaged me to say I should go visit the Culture Boat in Utrecht (https://www.coffeeshopdirect.com/CultureBoat.html) and I also recalled there being a Coffeeshop on a boat in Almere, a city I stayed in before with a friend but never really explored too much (https://www.coffeeshopdirect.com/Blowboot.html).

So folks, the question is, outside of these four, are you aware of any other coffeeshops on boats/barges in the Netherlands that I should add to my hit list?

Yes. The culture boat in Utrecht is very nice. The boat stands in Front of the old jail. Small cabins with a very good smell inside.
It Was full in the evening

They also tested their products AT cannabytics

The Black kush Was a nice dark not to oily hash.
Amnesia haze was good, too.

I was asking about this subject on Instagram as well and this place was recommended by a few people. Easy trip to make from Amsterdam as is the one in Almere.

In a bid to get more information, I cheated on ACD and also posted about this on another forum (i know, I know.......the shame!!). While I didn't get any further Coffeeshops on boats I did find out about the Drugsboat which used to be in Arnhem, pic below. It was a boat for hard drug users to use so they wouldn't be on the streets of Arnhem. Just thought I'd share as it's a bit of random NL info. Love the colour scheme on the boat :) It is now closed though so not sure what you should do if you're in Arnhem and need to shoot up.

I've trawled the directory outside of Amsterdam (as I figure someone would know if there was one in Amsterdam) and I think I can safely say that my list is as comprehensive as it gets or at least I can say none of the others Coffeeshops in the directory with a picture, are on a boat. Perhaps in some of the more remote places that Jesscass has never been :lol: and we dont have a pic, there may be another one, but for the moment it remains a secret. There may also be other closed ones as I didn't have the energy to look at all them too :D

I did find a picture of De Stoomboot (Steamboat) in Deventer, which per the directory burned down.

Links coffeeshop 'De Stoomboot' in 1979:
