Team building

Looking for an original idea for a successful team building? Then book your boats or luxury sloops from Minerva Boat Company and, together with your employees, enjoy the picturesque backdrop of the River Leie in and around Ghent.

An original team building on the water

A company stands or falls with its employees. A great team building that everyone can enjoy, increases motivation and the atmosphere in the workplace. A boat trip on the River Leie in and around Ghent will certainly be appreciated by everyone!

Afterwards you can also enjoy a delicious dinner in one of the numerous restaurants on the banks of the River Leie and/or in the bustling city centre of Ghent. Enough ingredients for a successful team building!

Rent a boat or sloop from Minerva

You steer the boats and luxury sloops from Minerva yourself. You sit in groups together and have a great time on the beautiful River Leie.

At Minerva Boats you can rent boats for 4 people as well as luxury sloops for 5, 6, 10 or 12 people. Our total capacity is 142 or, in exceptional circumstances, even 150 people.

If you book in time, you have a good opportunity to put your teams together yourself. Moreover, you can hire the boats and sloops as long as you want.

You are welcome to decorate the boat, but be careful not to use any decoration that gives off colour in contact with water, such as coloured paper and coloured roses.

To keep our boats and luxury sloops in perfect condition, we only ask you to respect a number of minimum agreements. For example, we do not allow pets or drunken captains or passengers. Swimming in the River Leie is prohibited.

Of course it’s allowed to bring food and drinks (in moderation) with you on the boats and luxury sloops. Be careful not to bring any oil-containing products.

Book your boat trip now!

Minerva has a fleet of dozens of boats and luxury sloops. Due to the crowds, we advise you to book in time. This way you can be sure that there are enough boats available for all your friends.
