From canals, lakes and rivers, take in the beautiful passing landscape from the comfort of your own boat – with no previous experience required. Le Boat owns and operates the largest and most stylish fleet of self-drive cruisers available on the market today, allowing you to plan your holidays with friends and family as you wish.
With plenty of destinations to choose from, there is something for anyone looking to see Europe from its waterways rather than its highways. In France alone, the company offers a selection of routes within nine different regions, crossing historical landmarks and breath-taking landscapes – with a unique viewpoint on the local flora and fauna. Over the years, Le Boat has expanded its coverage to Germany, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Poland, England, Scotland and Ireland. One of the advantages of choosing Le Boat is the possibility to organise one-way trips to your destination in case you have a tight schedule.
Built around the concept of ‘happiness on a boat’, the company owns 869 boats, spread over 25 locations in France alone and 14 over the rest of Europe. Customisable to your personal needs, Le Boat has a range of cruiser models to fit your budget, number of passengers and vacation plan. For greater cruising ambitions, you will find a fine selection of canal boats and river cruisers for sale at a wide price range.
With all boats equipped for a maximum level of comfort, you can expect to find a fully equipped kitchen, hot and cold running water, lounges, en-suite showers and bathrooms, and for the more modern boats: air conditioning and TV. You will also be provided with all the tools to ensure safe cruising, from navigational charts to mooring tools, first aid kits and life jackets.
Le Boat offers dedicated and personalised attention to its customers ahead of, during and after cruising so that before taking off to your adventure you will be extensively briefed on how to plan your route, become a master at locking your boat and finding the adequate spots where to moor.
For a unique holiday in a unique setting, Le Boat makes sure you return home with unforgettable memories.
