Le Boat Unveils 2024 Spring and Summer Lineup

Le Boat has launched its spring and summer 2024 vacation packages. With the boating season in Europe opening as early as March 15, and in Ontario on May 17, 2024, travelers can book their next vacation with the company’s extensive collection of boats in eight European destinations and two Canadian destinations.

Le Boat has a fleet of over 950 private boat rentals in France, England, Scotland, Ireland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy and Germany. New for 2024, Le Boat is opening two new bases—one in Ottawa at Dows Lake Pavilion and the Trent-Severn Waterway from a new base in Peterborough, Ontario.

Good to know: New boaters are welcome as no boat license or prior boating experience is required to rent a private houseboat in Canada or Europe. The Le Boat team will teach travelers everything they need to know to enjoy their vacation.

In addition, spring cruising offers less congested waterways, reduced airfares and canals in full bloom. In the spring, the waterways are less busy, allowing for a more peaceful journey, as well. The season arrives in Europe much sooner than in North America, with the average daily temperature ranging from 44 to 66 degrees Fahrenheit in Europe.

Highlights of the spring/summer offerings include:

  • A cruise through Amsterdam as thousands of tulips bloom.
  • A trip to the Royal Horticultural Society’s annual Chelsea Flower Show in the U.K.
  • A cruise on the UNESCO Canal du Midi to witness the bright pink hues of the cherry bloom in Carcassonne
  • A cruise on Ireland’s Shannon River onboard a private boat. 

Those planning a vacation north of the border in Canada can benefit from Le Boat’s recent price drop on all boat rentals on the UNESCO World Heritage Rideau Canal and Trent-Severn Waterway. Additionally, those who book before March 20, 2024 can benefit from an added saving of 20 percent. 

Additionally, for travelers planning their trip to Europe this summer, Le Boat is offering a seven-night vacation for the price of five nights on its Budget and Comfort Class BoatsCirrus A and B, Caprice, Elegance, Salsa A and B. The offer is valid on bookings confirmed before March 20, 2024.

For families, Le Boat offers vacation packages with a choice of boats that sleep up to 12 people, perfect for travelers with children or multi-generation family travel. For a limited time, travelers can experience a family vacation on their private boat with a saving of 5 percent more on their vacation when one of the traveling passengers is 16 years or below. This offer is combinable with all other in-market discounts and applicable on all boat rental vacations in Canada, France, England, Ireland, Scotland, Belgium, Italy and Germany. They can use promo code “FAM5” at the time of booking.

Le Boat’s “March Deal” offers travelers savings of up to 25 percent on March and April departures. They can also save up to 20 percent on Premier and Comfort Plus boats for May through October departures. Fares are inclusive of a 20 percent discount on three- to six-night short breaks in Canada and Europe. Offers end March 20, 2024.
