De Gallant was launched in 1916 under the name Jannetje Margaretha in Vlaardingen. She served as a herring lugger in the North Sea until 1936. In 1982 she was used as a cargo vessel by her Danish owner. Then in 1987 she returned to the Netherlands and was fully restored by a teaching and work experience project for youth in Amsterdam. She now sails in the North Sea, the Baltic and the English Channel as a sail training ship.
