The boat was not well prepared--some of the cupboards had brackets missing,the blind in one of the rooms kept falling off, we could not get the gas braai to work,the bushes on one of the thrusters had to be replaced a day or two after we left P/C.These are small things but the boat should be in PERFECT condition when you hand it over--we did not mind scratches dents and bumps-but these are basic things especially if you compare thepristine condition our Clipper boat was in when we did the canal the first time in 2016. See above comments --please analyse the user friendliness of this survey--it asks me the same question 3 times in a row!

El servicio es muy complete y uno tiene una gran experiencia de vacaciones! Ha sido un viaje maravilloso y volveríamos a realizarlo. Hay algunos aspectos que podrían ser mejores pero no opacan de ninguna forma lo bien que uno la pasa. Hemos hecho un viaje de tres generaciones: abuelos, padres e hijos y ha sido excelente para todos! La experiencia es muy completa y realmente enriquecedora y placentera... Para hacerla perfecta, sugiero que los agentes de ventas y los miembros del staff de las bases cuenten con mayor información respecto de los servicios básicos como compra de alimentos, lavandería, restaurants, horarios de Iglesias y demás atracciones turísticas... Nos ocurrió de llegar a los lugares sin tener conocimiento de esto. Nos hubiera mejorado la organización del viaje. Por otro lado yo había pedido tener como interlocutores a gente que hable ingles o español y no había.

We had several problems with the boat. The water pump had to be replaced and one of the toilets was not functioning and had to be repaired before we ever left the base. The gray water pump was not working properly the whole week so our showers were draining very slowly. It took about an hour for the bathroom floors to be clear of water after a shower. However, the staff were very prompt about making the repairs and LeBoat paid the taxi fare to take us to a restaurant while they worked on the repairs. We had a wonderful week with good friends, in spite of the initial problems mentioned above. The scenery was beautiful, the pace was relaxing, and we would do it again. The LeBoat staff were very professional and courteous at both bases. The boat itself was not quite as new and shiny as the website portrayed, but we did our cruising in September and so it had probably had a lot of use during the season.

We dealt with the head office initially - who were very good. We found the service at Douelle, our base, sadly wanting. Neither friendly or particularly helpful - just carrying out their job as if they really did not want to be there. The river Lot is an amazing boating destination. Everything is available for all ages - good trails for bike riding, clean water for children swimming, beautiful scenery, lovely little villages with excellent restaurants - everything to make a boating holiday perfect. Unfortunately the boat was in far from perfect condition when we took it, which admittedly was at the end of the season. The bedroom door system functioned poorly. The bedroom doors, the bathroom doors and the closet doors did not close properly, and all would just drift open at the same time hooking on to each other and causing utter confusion. We did have trouble with our air conditioning a couple of times due to clogging in the filter, but this was repaired by the service men and after that our captain cleared the filter himself above and below the waterline when the problem arose again. However, we could only run one compressor at a time and the boat never really cooled properly. The hull of the boat was very badly damaged from a season's use, aesthetically not too pleasing but this did not affect the function. One shower did not drain properly and we had to call a mechanic. The mattresses on the Vision 4 when the bed were joined as a double - did not fit at all and were much too small with at least a 6" deficit, which meant they drifted apart all the time and there was an ugly space where they obviously were just too small. The curtains in the main salon just hung in an ugly fashion around the windows as most of the hooks and runners were broken and missing. This could be overlooked if you just kept them open all the time but we were inclined to pull them when we had the air-conditioning on to help keep out the sun and put less strain on the unit. The sun deck cushions were damaged with the seams ripped and just generally rather scruffy. I had to request a dustpan and brush and mop, in order to be able to keep the boat clean - these items were not on the boat. We had to request 4 replacement bikes half way through the vacation as really the bikes were in very poor condition. To summarize: For the 4-5 star rating that these boats are given and for the price that is charged - the condition of the boats was quite unacceptable. As I was paying for my family of 16 on two boats, treating them for a luxury boating holiday, I was rather embarrassed at the overall condition of the Vision 4. The Vision 3 which we also had, appeared to be much better.

The service was great, the staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The boat was well equipped and very spacious. Unfortunately the only criticism we had was the quality of the mattresses which was very poor which let them down as everything else was of good quality. Despite this we would book again and recommend to others. Fabulous cruise along the beautiful Shannon. The scenery is spectacular. The boat sleeps 8/9 people but our party was only 6 and we therefore had more than sufficient space. Overall we rated the boat very highly with the exception of the quality of the mattresses which was very poor and led to sleepless nights and backache. We have already recommended that you upgrade them as this is an area which has let you down. A simple foam mattress topper would do the job and would make the quality of the boat and the experience 10/10
