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.

Very nice experience. However, our cars got scratched by someone at the overflow parking while we were boating. Very luxurious with a full size fridge.

Arrival, welcome was excellent. Sandy did a great job in orientation and training. Sailing is really very easy and the boats are nice and modern. Well equipped and comfortable for the most part. We did have a couple of issues related to an AC not working in 2 cabins and a water leak from a window due to the thunderstorm on the first evening. Both were rectified by the technician who drove and met us at the dock where we were. Thank you for that. See you again soon for sure. Our first time doing many a things, including driving a boat (or is it sailing), jumping in the middle of a lake to swim, crossing and navigating narrow locks...etc.

It's a great time. The boats are easy to use and have great facilities. The prices, especially currently due to COVID, offer excellent value for money. Did the Rideau Canal this year and we will be renting this again in Europe next year! It was excellent, would do again.

Le Boat’s service was excellent from our very first contact right until the end of our holiday. In particular, the readiness of the boat when we arrived at Port Cassafieres, the training we received and the advice we were given. Loved the whole experience! Brilliant boat for a large party of adults: all cabins en suite, fantastic cooking facilities, loads of outdoor space to eat and sunbathe.
Dear Miriam, Thank you for taking the time to provide a 5 star review of your boating holiday in the Camargue. We are delighted to hear that you had a fantastic boating holiday. We pride ourselves on delivering excellent customer service and we are delighted to hear that you received a warm welcome in Port Cassafieres. We look forward to welcoming you on board again soon.

Excellent from start to finish, could not fault any part of this experience We explored the Canal de Garonne from Le Mas d'Agenais north and then turned round and travelled down to Castelsarraisin encountering 59 locks which were all working well, with the exception of one which the engineers soon sorted out. We loved the peace and quiet, the scenery and the wildlife, seeing numerous kingfishers, coypu, herons, jays, a turtle sun bathing and deer. Everyone we saw was friendly and wanted to engage in conversation, just passing by. The French canals are beautiful and Le Boat have made the most of these with their efficient boats which enables us to navigate these waterways.

Absolutely the best vacation for our group of friends. Everyone had their own private quarters on our very comfortable boat. The scenery was fantastic as a boat tokes you to places that you can only see from the water. It was a tremendous bonding experience as we worked together navigating the locks. The main salon and upper deck were great gathering and dining areas. The trainiong made it all so easy to operate. The staff suggested a great itinerary. They anticipated our needs and offered great suggestions including dining and fishing options. The boat, which we received great training on, was very clean and easy to use and very thoughtfully and completely equipped..
