De Gallant was launched in 1916 under the name Jannete 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. She is a regular participant of the Tall Ships Races.
