Citing growing demand for couples vacations on European waterways, Le Boat has announced the addition of a smaller, two- to four-passenger self-skippered cruiser for the 2016 season.
Named the Horizon, the new craft was built exclusively for Le Boat with a master cabin and a second smaller cabin that is a good fit for young children, a bathroom with a separate stall shower, and spaces for dining and other activities. The vessel also has a rear cockpit and sundeck with furniture, sink, and barbeque. As with all Le Boat rentals, no boating experience or license is required.
For 2016, the new Horizon cruiser will be available in all of LeBoat’s key cruising areas, which include the Canal du Midi and Burgundy in France, The River Thames in England, and other popular waterways in Italy, Holland, and Germany.
In addition to the Horizon cruiser, Le Boat will be offering two cruise options in 2016. Among these, solo travelers on the Canal du Midi will be able to share a boat with other like-minded single travelers. Additionally, the Venice cruise area will offer “Boating Flotillas,” in which several boats will travel together, following the same itinerary, and guided by an onboard Group Host. The Host will provide assistance to new boaters, if needed, help arrange special group activities, and suggest places to visit en route.
