One last goodbye
When you say goodbye to your loved one, you want it in a beautiful and stylish way. Especially if the loved one has a passion for water and / or boats.
A funeral by boat is a wonderful alternative these days where fewer relatives are allowed to be present at the farewell to the loved one.
How can a funeral boat give a beautiful interpretation to a funeral?
Funeral boat as transport
The funeral procession is often the unspoken beginning of the ceremony. A special funeral boat in Amsterdam gives an unmistakably personal experience to the funeral of your loved one.
With more than 20 pick-up points in Amsterdam, relatives and/or the coffin can be safely brought on and off-board.
People who are unable to attend the funeral, but want to give a final greeting, can do so by standing scattered along the canals to which the funeral boat will pass by.
In this way, friends, family, and acquaintances can say goodbye at an appropriate distance.
Flagship Amsterdam can map out a route together with the family or the family can choose a route that we make for them based on the pick-up and drop-off location.
Farewell service / Farewell ceremony
Before someone is buried or cremated, a farewell service usually takes place. This can be held in a church, a funeral home or on a boat.
The relatives can complete or partially complete decide how to hold the ceremony. For example, by means of speeches, reading a poem, playing music. The funeral director can advise you on completing the ceremony.
