About Vision 3 SL

Designed just for Le Boat, this luxury diesel tops its class in river boats. You'll love the huge upper sundeck, luxurious saloon and gorgeous private cabins! Special pod drives make the boat as easy to maneuver as a car. The three staterooms have full-size twin beds that convert to doubles, plus there's a fold-down bed for a teen and an extra bed in the saloon, making the boat ideal for families and friends! Vision SL models have stairs that allow direct access to the bridge from the galley, making moving around that much easier.

Bit clumsy on checkin (Castelnaudary), incompetent technician on the midway (Trebes) and abs great stuff on checkout (Homps) Great boat with very comfortable accommodation
Dear Arvi Schilf, thank you so much for reviewing your holiday on the Midi. We are sorry to hear that you experienced different service levels. We always try our best to treat our customers with the same high service level at all our bases and want to apologize if you were partly not satisfied. We would love to welcome you back on board again soon! Your Le Boat Team

Our questions were quickly answered the invoice system is clearly set out. The Vision 5 with x3 cabins was perfect for our group. The fold down bunk in each room gave us luggage storage. Plus the ensuite was well laid out and gave you space to move. Plenty of cupboards and shelves for a couple. The galley was well equipped and the rooftop space and steering was excellent.

The orientation was too short for us to be comfortable maneuvering the boat. It took a long time to learn the use of the "Joy Stick and Bow Thruster." We do feel the model of boat was too large for easy navigation of the canal. Support services were excellent. Response time when we had problems was very quick and service personnel very efficient and helpful. All staff were very congenial as well. Overall, the trip was a wonderful time with good friends and lovely views of rural France. We would recommend your services to others.

I would rate your service Excellent. The person at check in at the Trebes base was absolutely wonderful. Easy, clear, friendly. The boat was great. Having 3 equal staterooms was important. Joy stick made driving simple.

We were on third trip on Leboat boat. First - Midi channel from Port Cassafieres to Homps with a small jump to the sea through Narbonne = that was far the nicest and most relaxing and romantic trip (recommending you as a first trip if you are a beginner). Many locks, but really easy to go through, not big traffic, no commercial boats... Almost all the marketing materials at Leboat pages and catalogues start with pictures from this area. And that area really looks as is in the catalogue, I would say even nicer. Second was in Venice - something totally different, you spend more time on boat, not like in France where you can use bikes almost every day. You see the crowded islands, but again you are close to the sea (was important for us with 3 kids to have possibility to visit 3-4 times the sea during our trip). Venice is easier to reach (train, plane), Port Cassafieres you must reach through smaller airport + longer taxi trip. This year we went from Port Cassafieres through Sete, lakes (Etangs) to St Gilles. That area is not so romantic as the Midi channel, still the sea is close (with nice, clean and mainly not crowded beaches), so if you have bikes, is easy to make trips (I would definitly recommend to take as many bikes as there are people on the boat, that puts extra bonus to your trip, every single day on boat will be different if you can visit the small villages nearby, play tennis or football, go fishing or BBQ on the terrace etc etc.). The Leboat service was great, we had a well equipped and reliable boat Vision 3, with 3 rooms. We were 4 adults and 3 kids, so 2 separate rooms for adults and the children´s room with 2+1 beds was a perfect combination. As first time we had Vision 4, we know that it is a better combination for this amount of people (bigger rooms, bigger bathroom). Except that the Vision 3SL is a lower boat (by 30cm) then 40cm, which makes the navigation under the bridges easier. For a group of 6-10 people who do not have experience with driving a boat, I would definitly recommend a Vision boat (or maybe the new Horizon boats have this option also). The manouvering with Joystick is simply so easy, that even the boat is huge, you drive it like you would play on Playstation :) Since we did the first trip, I am recommending to all of my friends to try this kind of holiday. Believe me, this is completely something else than to spend 2 weeks on sun somewhere on the beach. If you want a real relaxing, spend every day in other village, understand the local culture, food, vine, and to become for few days a part of this life, go onto this trip once. I trust you will go back again and again and again. This is a real relax + fun + active holiday. As we do now for 3 years. When we were first time, our small kid was only 4, but the boat is safe for even such a kid (we know vision 3 and 4), dont worry about the age. Next year our plan is to go to Holland. Again something different, but we are looking forward to spend again a beautiful holiday on leboat boat.. Thank you Leboat... One of the best boats in the fleet, if not the best...
