The boat was in good condition and didn't need any service. Thankfully. We were able to fully trust the boat - a very big deal. I felt that the price for the boat was fair. Dealing with Le Boat on these details was easy to do, they were very good to work with.

Fabulous experience! The scenery was even better than the photos in the brochure. Very responsive, helpful staff. We could have used a slightly more extensive orientation regarding how everything on the boat worked but we figured it out. Had one inoperable burner on the stove. The galley was otherwise nicely appointed. The Vision was very comfortable for three couples. We each had our own stateroom and en-suite head. It would have been too crowded for more than six people in our opinion.
Good Day Patricia, We really appreciate you taking the time to write a five-star review of your boating vacation in the Burgundy: Nivernais & Loire region. We also appreciate your feedback about the training needing to be a bit longer and the burner on the stove being out, we will pass this along to our team in Tannay. We are happy that these things did not detract from your over all experience and that you were able to feel more comfortable driving the boat as you went along. We are also pleased to hear that the scenery from Tannay to Migennes beautiful and we will aim to work on enhancing our photo selection of this region in our brochure and website for the future! We look forward to welcoming you on board again one day soon! Best Wishes, Le Boat Team

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.

Wir haben schon öfters bei Le boat die Vision gehabt. Uns gefällt das Boot und wir nehmen es immer gerne wieder. Unser erster Urlaub in diesem Jahr. Wir fühlten uns sicher auf unserem Boot. Der Kontakt zu vielen Menschen lässt sich hier gut vermeiden.
