About Horizon 2

The Horizon 2, has two en-suite cabins, albeit a smaller master cabin than the Horizon 1 (2+3) model and a wet room in the second en-suite. However, it enjoys the same saloon and sundeck space and is perfect for two couples looking for a bit more privacy or a family who would like two bathrooms. Please note that sundeck sinks are not available on all of our Horizon boats.

Air cooling and air conditioning

When the temperatures soar, our cabin air cooling system can help make your night’s sleep a little more comfortable. Air cooling uses canal/river water to produce cool air which is blown out through vents.

 

Please note: This is not the same as air-conditioning which can achieve lower temperatures and has a thermostatic control. Performance significantly reduces if canal/river temperature is too high.

Even though our reserved boat had mechanical issues, we were well accommodated. The check in and out were smooth. The base was very helpful in telling us where we could do our provisioning. There are so many different options for where to go from this base that we can have trips from here many times and see different things. The staff are very helpful.

Nice boat, very good customer service - only flaw was the lack of a pre-cruise phone call as promised which would have answered some of our questions in advance enjoyed ten days cruising up to Ottawa and back - nice, comfortable boat and lovely moorings/docking

LeBoat has a well trained staff from the office/booking staff to the shore staff. They are professional, sociable and accommodating. We booked a three night, four day boating experience. We headed towards Merrickville-Wolford. It was truly cottage country, with the historical experience of the many locks and the endless sky.
