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...

The standard of the boat was excellent and support from the serviced teams in Narbonne and Port Cassafieres was much appreciated. The early check-in and late check out worked well for our group and took very little time. A really nice boat for a group of four adults with all the facilities necessary on board to make this a super holiday.

Where do we start!!.. Absolutely Fabulous service ! From start to finish we are treated like royalty by all the Le Boat staff. Everyone is brilliant and Corrine at St Gilles Base is wonderful. We do and always will sail the Camargue every year of our lives. .... And we will ONLY use Le Boat to do so. What a wonderful company full of amazing people! Paul & Melanie Rutherford Brilliant boat. So comfortable and well accessorised. Definitely the boat we will continue to use in the future.
Hi Paul and Melanie, Thank you for the lovely feedback. We're thrilled to hear that you had such an amazing holiday on the Camargue and that you were treated so well by our teams.

The staff at the base were very helpful and the boat had been well prepared. Very clean inside and out.The necessary procedures were completed very quickly and we were able to get away before lunch. We has a valuable early check-in We have used this boat base several times but we had never cruised up to Montargis before. It was an excellent route and we shall hope to do it again sometime.
Thanks for the positive feedback! It's great to hear that our staff looked after and that you enjoyed your boat and holiday. I hope that we can welcome you on board again soon. All the best, The Le Boat Team

The boat was almost new, and luxurious. We only had one technical problem, which they talked us through on the phone. Bronwin in the office and Sterling checking us out, were both excellent. Very luxuriously equipped boat. I was happy to have bow and stern thrusters, as I had only one crew member, inexperienced, and the Horizon 1 is a big boat, around 37 feet.

From check-in to check-out they were extremely friendly and helpful. I have to mention Andy in particular who went out of his way to ensure we had everything we needed for a superb holiday. 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
