About Horizon 1

The Horizon boat has been designed exclusively for Le Boat with couples in mind! Small party crew looking for more features and a higher spec now have the perfect option. A large forward stateroom, a roomy ‘fundeck’ on top-deck area and a high level of equipment are making this model the only boat of its size on Europe’s inland waterways to have such a level of comfort.

Air conditioning and air cooling

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.

The customer service was excellent and very organized The boat was fantastic, definitely the best one we have been on yet. The only recommendation is if they could put memory foams on the beds, it’s very uncomfortable. Otherwise, they had everything we needed.

We had a good experience, particularly with the orientation. The only down side is having to pay for every little bit and piece... It felt like we were being gamed. Excellent

All members of staff from time of booking, greeting on arrival (and, sadly, leaving) to those who gave instruction and help once on-board were all absolutely amazing. Extremely friendly, helpful and undoubtedly went above and beyond. So enjoyed and have already rebooked!

Great service, all very friendly, delivered with a smile. Let me park and plug in my electric car for free, which was a bonus. I only wish the cruises were a little cheaper - can't have it all, I suppose! Great boat - best in class. Perfect for river and canal cruising. Even the wife was impressed.
