LB_Vision_BoatBrand new fleet of eco-friendly luxury self-drive boats for hire in France. Unlike any other self-drive barge on the canals and waterways, with the very latest technology for efficient and effortless cruising as well as an exceptionally spacious and well-designed internal and external layout. Available in 8+ and 6+ configurations.

Revolutionary joystick control – effortless manoeuvring and mooring

As well as a conventional steering wheel on the upper and lower deck, the Le Boat 1500 series (Vision) has a joystick to manoeuvre the boat. With just a few simple movements you are able to effortlessly steer and turn the boat, making sideways manoeuvring and parallel mooring against the canal side extremely easy.

Quietly efficient

You’ll soon see that cruising under solar-electric power is noticeably quieter, making your holiday on the water more harmonious with the surrounding natural environment. In addition, the reduced level of CO2 emissions makes the Le Boat Vision a greener, cleaner boat for inland waterways cruising – something we believe to be a sound investment for the future.

Luxury cruising

The internal layout of the new LeBoat 1500 series (Vision) is designed for maximum comfort and easy onboard living. At the front of the boat, the spacious saloon has comfortable seating for all passengers as well as a music system, flat screen TV and DVD player for onboard entertainment. Large windows provide superb visibility and views and the open plan kitchen galley leading off from the saloon increase the feeling of space and light onboard, as well as allow for great socialising with family and friends.


The kitchen is fully equipped so you can cater for your party in style. Access to the front deck is also planned from the salon area, making it easy for the crew to help with mooring and navigation through the locks. With full standing height and level flooring throughout, you’ll also find it very easy to get around too.


The large hotel-style cabins each have modern en-suite facilities for maximum privacy and with regular-sized beds with proper mattresses, are very comfortable too. Each cabin can be arranged as either a double or a twin for maximum flexibility and also features a flat screen TV and plenty of storage space. Outside, the huge top sundeck is a great place for alfresco dining and for enjoying panoramic views of the countryside around you. Make the most of the bar fridge for chilling drinks and a BBQ for easy summer cooking. A large folding sun canopy (bimini) provides ample shade for everyone on the hotter days too.
