About Vision 3 SL

Designed just for Le Boat, you’ll love the huge upper sundeck, spacious saloon and gorgeous private cabins! Sideways thrusters at front and rear make the boat as easy to manoeuvre as a car. The three staterooms have full-size twin beds that convert to doubles, plus there’s a fold-down bed in two cabins (suitable for a child 70kg max) 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.

  • 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 4 SL Sundeck
  • 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.
  • Easy access to sundeck with stairs from galley.
  • Each boat is equipped with a collapsible sun canopy (bimini) for cruising in bright sunshine.

Air cooling and air conditioning

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.

LeBoat staff were very helpful with all questions before we arrived and also with organising a taxi to get from the train station to the Homps base. The staff member who showed us the boat was great and made sure we knew everything we were supposed to do. Boat is easy to maneuver. Spacious accommodation with all amenities including air-con.
