Grand Classique's key features

  • The saloon is situated in the center of the boat and by default becomes the main interior common area during boat cruises.
  • A huge dining table that folds down out of the way when not in use and a giant U-shaped love seat form the centerpiece.
  • The love seat converts to a large double bed.
  • The saloon's radio/CD player with MP3/USB connectivity is wonderful when relaxing after a day on the water.
  • An inside steering station with good visibility and access to outside decks are other features of the saloon.
  • The big U-shaped kitchen/galley is well designed for preparing gourmet meals.
  • There's loads of counter space, a large electric refrigerator, ample sink, a stove, and lots of cabinets for storage.
  • Two aft (rear) cabins with plenty of natural light from large stern windows feature two single beds each that convert to double beds. Each has an en-suite bathroom with shower, new electric-flush toilet, and sink
  • Immediately forward of the aft cabins is a smaller central cabin with two single bunk beds that are wonderful for kids
  • Beyond the grand saloon, you'll find two additional staterooms, one with a double bed in a spacious private cabin in the bow, and two crossover single bunk beds in a smaller cabin aft
  • The third bathroom is across from the two forward cabins and includes a shower, new electric-flush toilet, and sink
  • Sundecks are hugely important features on boat cruises, allowing everyone to relax together outside
  • The Grand Classique's sundeck is quite large with lots of seating, a wide umbrella for shade, and a fixed table for alfresco dining and cocktail parties
  • The second steering station on the sundeck provides excellent visibility
  • The spacious saloon below the sundeck is easily accessed. There's ample storage for bicycle
  • A safe is aboard for your convenience and security
  • You'll love the powerful bow thrusters for coming alongside at docks and in locks!
  • The onboard electrical system runs on 12-volt DC power and 220-volt shore power
  • The Grand Classique is equipped with an efficient and reliable diesel engine

Probably the best family holiday we have ever had. Picking up the boat was easier than I had anticipated, our briefing was excellent and all the staff made sure we left with smiles on our faces. With 7 adults and 2 small children, we weren’t sure what to expect when living in a confined space for a week. The boat was perfect, well equipped and easy to handle. I would love to do it all again.

We had a great trip from Boofzheim to Hesse on a great boat Grand Classique. We selebrated 2 birthdays while on the travel and had a great time during 7 days. I will definetely reccommend Le boat company (and actually did this already to everyone who asked about our holiday in Alsace:-) There was not a lot information about canal boating on Russian websites and I communicated with Leboat sales team intensively and got all the answers very quickly. Teams at the starting and finishing points were super professional and very patient and helpful. It was our first trip along canals and we felt a bit nervous. We were explained everything and Leboat people checked if we undersood everything and correct. We had a small technical problem (our falt) and the service team arrived in an hour and the engineer fixed everything very quickly. Great service. Many thanks!! We loved the boat. Every family had a cabin, 3 toilets, fully equipped kitchen. Big boat size- it was comfortable to spend time for 10 adults. We booked some extra things and it was great- grill, bikes, coushons. Total cleaning after the trip was a smart thing to book in advance- I am glad I did this:-). Some times we had self-cooked dinner near the boat taking out the table and chairs to the ground (there was enough room inside the boat as well. It was very good. We were 3 generations - my papents (over 70), 2 adult couples of 45-55 and 4 young people of 23-26. The boat was comfortable for everyone and everyone had its own task and small job during the journey. Its a great idea for family team-building:-)

Staff, staff, staff they were outstanding. At Decize they picked us from the train station. Daniel their mechanic is the kind of employee every business wants. I had a small problem in Nevers. I telephoned on Sunday, he drove up immediately, showed me how stupid I was without a hint of justifiable criticism. I was the fool and wasted his time, I really appreciated this. Handing the boat back at Chatilion was a pleasure. Rail tickets back to Paris were no problem to organise. Taxi was summoned at just the right time. My previous canalling experience in France had okay if standoffish service, none of that this time. The family tells me we have to do this again. One last point Linda in your Australian office is very good also. Great holiday in central France

Venlig og professionel service. Har allerede anbefalet Le Boat til venner og bekendte Velindrettet og rummelig til 10 personer, faktisk bedre end Magnifique, som vi lejede sidste år. Vi savnede dog en solbaldakin, da to parasoller ikke kunne skærme tilstrækkeligt mod solen. Gasblusset var meget svagt. Det tog flere timer at koge en stor gryde vand. Teknikere prøvede at afhjælpe dette uden det store resultat.

Their service was good and we will certainly recommend them. Great for 8 people I think more adults would be a strain!

Very professional service, good communication. The only fault to this boat was very little shade up on deck particularly on the 35' + days we were experiencing. We had 4 adults and 5 teenagers onboard, it was a little squishy for some of the bigger lads.

We weree travelling by boat for a week in June. There were 5 cabins, but one of them wasn't really confortable. The LeBoat staff was preety friendly, the only problem was that noone told us the town Brams was closed and we couldn'd get water and electricity there. We took 4 bicycles and some of them had a broken wheel. We also ordered 2 lanterns, but they didn't give us any. Othewise we loved our jurney, and maybe will take it the next year too! The boat was good, clean and comfortable enough

Dear Miss Stich,
Thank you for sharing your feedback, it is much appreciated. We are sorry to learn one of your cabins was uncomfortable and you received broken bikes. We have taken action on the matter and forwarded your comments to the base team to investigate and make steps to improve these issues. We understand that this is not what you expected and we are sincerely sorry for any disappointment caused.
We are very pleased you enjoyed your cruise nonetheless and would love the opportunity to welcome you on board with us again soon.
Best wishes, The Le Boat team

Le Boat were very helpful when we had issues, and did resolve the two problems we had while cruising. The disappointing thing was that we had engine issues which on both occasions took only about half an hour to fix, but we had to wait 3 hours to get an engineer which interfered greatly with our planned itinerary. I do think they need more technicians on the Canal du Midi given the age of their boats. Ours was 17 years old and therefore more prone to breakdown than newer boats. I do not think that 3 hours wait for an engineer is a good response time, but I have rated their service good as when they did arrive they were polite, knowledgeable and fixed the problems. However, on a 7 day cruise to have two days where we could not really travel very far was irritating, and as a consequence we had to miss out of some planned stops, and a booked day at a chateau with friends. A nice boat but old and therefore prone to breakdown!
