A cruise through the harbours and canals will bring you back to the time of the Golden age of Amsterdam. Thanks to the ship’s own history, and her tasteful restoration, you can travel back into time and feel king for a moment. Our saloon boat Hilda sails on an electric propulsion, so she’s absolutely silent and friendly for the environment.




We are a small family business. Therefore canal cruises with salon ship Hilda are highly customized. We do not offer standard trips. We will discuss your personal wishes and take it from there.



You can sail to location you wish to visit: hotel, museum, restaurant or outdoor café. You confer with the office or skipper beforehand on where you want to embark and disembark and what route you would like to sail. The boat is fitted with all modern conveniences.

Your impressions on your own private Amsterdam canal cruise, wedding, or dinner cruise aboard the luxury salon ship Hilda.

We held our official wedding ceremony on a beautiful salon boat (electric, so it also makes no noise). We boarded at the Hermitage, conducted the ceremony (with the registrar), dropped off the registrar, and then spent another hour cruising the canals with drinks and delicious snacks. The location couldn’t have been better, and the owner and captain of the boat were really very accommodating and kind. There are several similar salon boats, but in terms of price/quality, atmosphere, and service, I can definitely recommend Geert from Rederij Hilda. This is what it looked like (oh yes, there were about 30 of us):

Getting married on board, at an official Amsterdam wedding venue.
Best wishes,
