The Hoop op Behoud is a "pavilion tjalk" from the south of 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 renewed courage 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.

Convertible roof for any type of weather

We have a roof that can be adapted to every type of weather. Depending on the weather we can open or close the boat rapidly.

In winter an extra canvas is put over the top to keep the warmth inside. And if it gets really cold, we have a heating system that can be put into action.

The tables and seats can be flexibly employed for both a sitting dinner or a drinks and snacks trip with standing tables, or even a switch from one to the other during the trip.


The boat rental is € 325,- per hour (incl. VAT). This includes a captain and a sailing waiter/waitress.

For safety and service an extra sailing waiter/waitress is employed from 25 people at € 36 per hour (incl. VAT).

The minimal sailing time is 2 hours.

For every event on the water a fee is due to the municipality tax of Amsterdam of €1,55 per person.
