Vision 3's key features

2020 Vision icon

Same boat. Same comfort. Better experience!

The Vision fleet has been a firm favorite among our customers for years due to its spacious interior, massive sundeck and excellent features. However, some of our customers told us that they found them to be a little too high-tech and complicated to use. So we've invested over €7M and have made some BIG technical changes to the boat’s controls and onboard systems… and now they are MUCH easier. In fact, they are now much the same as our new Horizon boats which receive rave reviews.

 

For those who have experienced the Vision before, we can’t wait for you to experience the difference. When you step on board, you will see little change. You’ll find the same great space, layout and features as before. The only thing notably missing is a joystick, which we've replaced with easy-to-use Bow AND stern thrusters to propel the front and rear of the boat sideways. You will notice a more straight-forward pre-departure briefing and a more relaxed feeling as you cruise with increased confidence.

Vision 3 interior & saloon
  • All interior spaces of the Vision 3 are designed to provide maximum light. Soft colour tones, a contemporary décor, and an eye toward functionality makes the boat a pleasure for cruising. The saloon offers superior visibility of your outside surroundings.
  • Convertible settee in saloon sleeps one additional person
  • The radio/CD player and flat-screen DVD player are both great for onboard entertainment.
  • The interior steering position is a real plus in rainy weather, and access to the foredeck from the saloon makes line handling easy.
  • The modern kitchen/galley has a gas oven and stove, a microwave, and a large refrigerator/freezer.
  • The galley is fully equipped for preparing gourmet feasts or simple meals.
Vision 3 cabins & bathrooms
  • Each of the three staterooms are the same size and have regular-size comfortable beds, which can be arranged as either one double or two singles.
  • Two cabins have a drop-down bunk suitable for one child (70kg max).
  • The contemporary en-suite bathroom facilities in each cabin include showers, sinks, and electric-flush toilets.
  • Full-standing headroom of 6 feet 5 inches (2 meters), plus level flooring give you a sense of luxury accommodations ashore.
  • There's plenty of storage in these spacious hotel-style staterooms.
Vision 3 sundeck & exterior
  • The secondary steering position is terrific, affording the skipper excellent visibility in locks or when coming alongside a quay.
  • For entertaining and alfresco dining in style, there's a barbecue hot plate, bar fridge, sink, and cupboard.
  • Each boat is equipped with a collapsible sun canopy (bimini) for cruising in bright sunshine.
Air conditioning and air cooling

When the temperatures soar, air conditioning can help make your night’s sleep a little more comfortable. Thermostatically controlled to keep the internal temperature up to 10°C below external temperature. 

 

There is a thermostat in the saloon, which collectively controls the temperature in the saloon and frontmost cabin, and a thermostat in the rear cabin which collectively controls the temperature in the two rearmost cabins.

 

Please note: Performance significantly reduces if canal/river temperature is too high.

A weeks sailing on the rivers and canals. Never tried it before and was a little worried about operating the boat but the pre departure lesson was really good. Staff at both ends were very friendly and helpful. The boat developed a minor fault but a technician came to our aid with an hour and sorted everything. I will be booking again :) Excellent boat. Was a Little worried about the size but with the side thrusters, it’s really not that hard to handle

Our trip was canceled twice because of Covid, and there was no issues at all. Everything was as expected and an amazing experience. the boat was in a good condition and did not give us any problems. The boat is well equipped and have enough space for three couples. An extra set of towels would definitely help.

Their communication before the trip was excellent. Always available to talk by phone. The boat was well stocked for us. We had our own "captain" who knew what he was doing so it was very helpful.
