Your own personal space…

Our boats offer the perfect sanctuary and a welcome opportunity for you and your family, or group of friends, to escape from it all and enjoy some quality time together. Especially if you haven't been able to see each other for a long time. Everything you need for a comfortable stay is on board - fully equipped kitchens, hot showers and comfortable cabins.

And you can be assured all our boats are thoroughly cleaned and sanitised, by the Le Boat team, between customers so you can relax with peace of mind from the moment you arrive. 

Reading on the river

... at your own personal pace 

What better way to relax, slow down and rejuvenate for a little bit - the way of life on the water is the perfect 'tonic'. You’ll love being free from itineraries and deadlines with the freedom to stop where you want, when you want for as long as you want. Of course, if you wish to hire bikes, get active and see and do as much as you can pack in – then go for it. You’re the Captain!

Easy-to-reach destinations

With a great choice of destination across Europe, we’re sure to have a cruising region close to home – or just across the border. So if you would rather avoid air, sea or rail travel, why not pack up the car with all your creature comforts and drive to our bases. We offer parking and if you wish to make a one-way trip from one base to another, you can book a car-transfer service so your car is waiting for you at the other end.

The call of the countryside

Self catering in style

What better way to dine than from the privacy and comfort of your cruiser? Dine al fresco on the sundeck, fire up a barbecue with meat from the local butcher and a indulge in a glass or two of the local wine. Independent, local and quality produce and cuisine is a hallmark of a Le Boat holiday. Enjoy!

Support smaller local communities

Many small businesses and traders rely on tourism to survive, just like those in the small towns and villages that border our waterways. These difficult times will be especially hard for them. We can’t wait to get you back on the waterways as soon as possible so that we can once more bring much needed custom to these businesses that depend on us to survive.
