About Horizon 1

The Horizon boat has been designed exclusively for Le Boat with couples in mind! Small party crew looking for more features and a higher spec now have the perfect option. A large forward stateroom, a roomy ‘fundeck’ on top-deck area and a high level of equipment are making this model the only boat of its size on Europe’s inland waterways to have such a level of comfort.Jump aboard and take a look around with our virtual tour...

Excellent well designed and equipped boat - perfect for the 4 of us to enjoy our 7 nights on board - we really lacked nothing. Sitting up top with the barbecue in the evening was wonderful

We have used Le Boat many times before. As always nothing is too much trouble and the boat was amazing. We will definitely be back again. The boat was perfect in every way. Just like being at home, but with more USB chargers and good air con. So better than home in many ways! We have tried about 10 different Le Boat cruisers and this is the new favourite despite smaller size than some.
Hi Mr A , We're glad to hear that Le Boat always go above and beyond to ensure that your holiday is everything you imagined and more! Thank you for your loyalty and we can't wait to see you on your next cruise! All the best, The Le Boat Team

Good comms; easy to deal with. The Horizon is a great vessel with all the comforts of home. We were able to use power for all supplied and personal equipment without the need to connect to shore power. Heating was efficient and effective. Manoeuvring the Horizon into locks and against pontoons was trouble free.
Thank you for taking the time to share your positive feedback and we're very glad that you had a good cruising experience with us. Best regards, the Le Boat team.
