Explore the Floating Dutchman

The Floating Dutchman amphibious bus is the only hybrid amphibious touring car the world that complies with all European road and water regulations. The bus has been built by Dutch Amphibious Transport Vehicles (DATV) in Nijmegen. Three years ago DATV started the development of two prototype vehicles:
- The ‘010’ has been specifically designed for the rough waters in the Port of Rotterdam and seats 43 people.
- The ‘020’ has been specifically designed for the canals of Amsterdam. The ‘020’ bus is a hybrid vehicle as it cruises down Amsterdam’s canals using battery power. It seats 48 people and is low enough to clear the bridges of Amsterdam’s canals.
The ‘010’ has been bought by our partner in Rotterdam, Splashtours, and is operational since March10. For more information on Splashtours please visit their website.
