You are allowed to sail many of the inland waterways of Europe without one!

We are offering you the excitement of exploring the canals and waterways of Germany, Holland, and Italy aboard your very own private motorboat!
Although we are not currently promoting canal tours in France, Scotland, England, and Canada, they are available on request.

Self-catering motorboat hires where you decide your itinerary and places of interest at your own pace, but need to be back in base on the day and time agreed to.
On arrival at the Le Boat Base of choice, you will be given a 2-hour training session on how to sail and the basic rules before you may depart. We can assure you that it is easier than you think!
There are also many optional extras that you can either book before you go or on the day subject to availability.
