Saloon boat Hilda

Our intimate, classic boats are perfect for private boat tours with small groups or private dining on board. It can happen that your company exceeds our maximum capacity, which means we cannot accommodate your request on any of our own boats.
In that case, we can wholeheartedly recommend our reliable colleague of saloon boat Hilda. A beautifully restored, luxurious and environment friendly saloonboat.

Saloonboat Hilda

Saloon boat Hilda was built in 1895 and was the first canal boat in Amsterdam in 1923. Decommissioned in the 1950s, but fortunately rediscovered in the 1990s and restored into a luxurious saloonboat. During a cruise on the Amsterdam canals with Saloonboot Hilda you find yourself in the most historic canal boat with contemporary comfort. Thanks to the rich cruise history, the professional restoration and the cozy and warm atmosphere, you will feel like a king or queen on board. Owner and skipper Geert is your point of contact from the first phone call until the moment he welcomes you on board of saloonboat Hilda.


Thanks to the noiseless and environment friendly propulsion, saloonboat Hilda is the perfect location for your meeting or presentation. A dinner cruise Amsterdam on the historic belt of canals starts on board of the gracious saloonboat Hilda.

Sustainably powered by an electric motor, you move silent and emission-free through the Amsterdam canals. All packages will be tailor-made for you. The company is a small family business. Therefor canal cruises with salonboat Hilda are customized; no standard trips, but a cruise according your personal wishes.

Captain Geert is your personal contact; from the first inquiry, to the moment he personally welcomes you on board of saloonboat Hilda.

When your groups size exceeds the maximum capacity of our boats, we would like to offer you the alternative to rent both the Style and the Salute at the same time and divide your group over our 2 boats. With this option the group will still be ‘together’ and they can take pictures of each other while cruising the Amsterdam Canals.

Contact us for the possibilities and we will make you a special offer for this option.

We hope to welcome you on board soon!
