Le Boat

Who’s on board?

We’ve operated on Europe’s rivers and canals for over 40 years.

And we are the largest operator of self-drive boating holiday across Europe.

Our customers are able to explore the Thames, Scotland, Ireland, France, Germany, Belgium, Holland and Italy – all from a completely unique perspective – from their tranquil and picturesque waterways. No experience is necessary, so anyone can hire a boat and set off on their own river adventure. You’re free to travel at your own pace and stop whenever and for as long you want, to explore the pretty towns and villages along the way.

We’ve operated on Europe’s rivers and canals for over 40 years which means we can offer straightforward, honest advice based on extensive knowledge and experience of our cruising areas and our fleet.

With over 30 boat types to choose from, we have a boat to suit every party size, budget and expectation – whether you’re looking for something affordable and comfortable, or a superior cruiser with lots of on-board features.

With 37 bases across Europe, help and assistance is never far away if you need it. Our network of bases also means we offer one-way holidays, allowing you to see and enjoy more of your chosen cruising area.

Not only does Scotland offer breathtaking landscape views, it has so many great sights and attractions suitable for the whole family!

Visit the West Highland Railway and take a ride on the Jacobite steam train, used as the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter film series, which runs from Fort William to Mallaig, taking in breath taking scenery on an 84 mile round trip!
