About Horizon 2

The Horizon 2, has two en-suite cabins, albeit a smaller master cabin than the Horizon 1 (2+3) model and a wet room in the second en-suite. However, it enjoys the same saloon and sundeck space and is perfect for two couples looking for a bit more privacy or a family who would like two bathrooms. Please note that sundeck sinks are not available on all of our Horizon boats.

Air cooling and air conditioning

When the temperatures soar, our cabin air cooling system can help make your night’s sleep a little more comfortable. Air cooling uses canal/river water to produce cool air which is blown out through vents.

 

Please note: This is not the same as air-conditioning which can achieve lower temperatures and has a thermostatic control. Performance significantly reduces if canal/river temperature is too high.

LeBoat has a well trained staff from the office/booking staff to the shore staff. They are professional, sociable and accommodating. We booked a three night, four day boating experience. We headed towards Merrickville-Wolford. It was truly cottage country, with the historical experience of the many locks and the endless sky.

We had an amazing vacation. It started with the staff who were helpful, Knowledgeable and friendly. A special shoutout to Andrew who went above and beyond to ensure our trip was a success. The boat (horizon 2) was amazing. It was given to us clean and fully ready for our journey. The boat was very easy to operate with having bow and stern thrusters. Finally the Rideau canal system with its many locks, lakes and connecting rivers provided a beautiful backdrop to a perfect vacation. As stated previously, this holiday was 5 star from a combination of the staff, the boat and the beauty of the Rideau system.

Excellent customer service, Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. We were suppose to take this trip the prior year (2020) but could not because of the Covid 19 lock down. They gave the option for full refund or we could wait till the next year. We waited and lucked out that the Border into Canada opened to fully vaccinated US citizens about 2-weeks prior to our arrival. The Boat was great, the area was beautiful, and we had a great time on our 7 day cruse. We had 2- couples and this boat was perfect. Both rooms had their own bathroom, and the kitchen area was great. the top deck area was perfect and where we spent the majority of our time.

Excellent experience all around. Despite COVID everything went pretty much exactly as we had hoped. We will definitely do this again in the fall and likely again next year possibly in Europe. Boat was lovely and clean, pretty much brand new. We had a good briefing and little practice run then off we went. They are very easy to control with the bow and stern thrusters so its a bit like a video game docking, fairly easy if you just go slowly and inch your way in. Cabins were made up nicely, and very comfortable Nice showers, washrooms, plenty of hot water.

The reservation process and the information given was excellent via the website, phone and locally. Will defenately use Le Boat as my river and canal vendor wherever they operate. I started on Sunday and unfortunately was not advised that all provisions shops are closed. I suggest this information should be given to the customer.
