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.

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.

The customer service was excellent at the sales phase and slightly decreased after the transaction was completed. We asked a few follow up questions to the customer agent (like if Le Boat sell angling sets and whether we needed a license) and we never really heard back. Everything was great with the boat - only thing to improve was the cleanliness of the toilet and the navigation map.

Canal du Nivernais was just as advertised -- beautiful, quiet, serene. Le Boat staff got us on our way quickly and efficiently. When we had a problem with one of the thrusters after our first night (probably got weeds sucked up in the thruster), a staff member zipped down the canal to come consult with us in just a few minutes. Thruster couldn't be fixed without taking the boat out of the water, so we just proceeded on, and didn't need it anyways! Lovely vacation. kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk
