I have never been to the Netherlands

(or any of Europe for that matter) - so pardon my naivity in asking:

would this be an ocean going ship - or do boats such as this also navigate the canals?  Is the boat for a single family - or is it used commercially - perhaps for hauling.  It seems so narrow for its length.

When I was growing up - we were given the image of the Netherlands as being a country of canals and dikes.  That is still the image I have with no understanding of where the canals are, how large they are, etc.  I live in central US where 3 large rivers meet (Missiissippi, St Croix and the Minnesota) - there are several large boats and barges that travel the rivers (locks and dams to permit travel up and down stream).
