About Magnifique

Our Magnifique boat rent is an ideal choice for parties up to 10. The cabins are set fore and aft to enhance privacy, and to give the central saloon prominence. A huge sundeck features a fixed table and cushioned seats. Speakers pipe music in. About as upscale as you can get, this boat is simply superb!

Excellent service from the Cape Town office - Dianne supported our planning with great communication and accurate information. We received exactly what we requested and it worked well for us. The Port Cassafieres staff were friendly and helpful and very accommodating. We tried to moor at Trebes and there was no space for us to be able to connect to shore power. The marina was full of empty boats (it is low season) and despite spending 2 nights there no effort was made to move an empty boat to allow us access to power. The Magnifique was perfect for 2 families, one at each end of the boat. The boat performed well and was great fun to drive. The facilities on board like fridges and cooking equipment worked well and were sufficient for 8 people.

From booking with Marcus a year before our trip to all of the staff we met along the way it was a fantastic trip and Le Boat made it easy and enjoyable. We took our two dogs and they loved all the walks we went on along the tow path. My brother and I booked it as a surprise trip for my mother and fathers 60th birthdays and with our partners there were 6 of us (and the two dogs) on the boat and we all fitted comfortably. Hopefully I have attached our time lapse of our last day, we were all very sad to be heading home. Brilliant boat. Plenty of room for the 6 of us as 2 dogs. Well equipped. We would just have liked a mop what with the two dogs on board.

we loved life on the boat, especially in scotland with the locks and canals. the boat was beautidul and all worked well. the only suggestion i would give is to spend a little more time on instructions for parking. we only had a short lesson, so we basically had to learn as we went, which added stress to our trip. we notived another boating company had instructors stay on the baot through the first lock with the guests. That would have been helpful. We didn't know what to do when we got to our first lock, which was right at the pickup location. All turned out fine, but a little more practice on parking would have made the trip excellent! we loved the space of this boat. we only had a family of 5, so next time i would rather get a smaller boat. i was thinking originally thinking we would want the space, but we really didnt need it and a smaller boat would have been easier to maneuver.

The six adults on this trip have traveled several times together and all of us agreed this was our favorite trip so far. The boat was clean and well maintained. This is a great boat for traveling the canals.

Great welcome from Lucy and swift handover process. The boat was very clean and tidy. Thankfully we got to go up to Oxford this time after the sunk boat was removed from the lock. The weather was perfect and we had a brilliant time, will definitely be back again. Thank You Awesome boat, second time we have had this type and love it

Our fourth trip with Le Boat. Service at the base was excellent. Our Magnifique was the best boat yet. The Magnifique was a great boat, roomy and well equipped. Despite being quite a large boat, it handled better than some of the smaller ones we have rented.
Thank you so much for providing feedback. We are very happy you enjoyed your fourth trip with us and that you loved the Magnifique as much as we do!
