The Hoop op Behoud is a "pavilion tjalk" from South Holland that was launched in 1897 in Alphen aan de Rijn. As sailing cargo ship she transported mainly sand and clay. Early in the 20th century the ship was extended and fitted with an engine. With fresh drive the Hoop op Behoud managed to stay in the cargo trade up to the 60's, and has been in use as a passenger boat by Amsterdam Boat Events since 1993.
