Friendly, relaxed assistance at both ends of our LeBoat trip. Good thorough boat and route brief before we started. Quick, easy turn-in at the end, with great help getting a taxi to the train station. Everything functioned properly throughout our trip on our Minuetto boat. It would be great to be able to get the cruising guide and charts prior to the cruise for decent planning. Lock, bridge, and tide timining was a bit challenging at times in this cruising area, and having this knowledge beforehand would have been very useful. Great boat. Engines, thrusters, and generator all worked well. Boat handled easily. All kitchen items functioned properly. All lights worked. Bimini went up and came down easily. Batteries held a decent charge. Water heater worked well. Size of water tank was a little small for 8 adults, but not too bad.

We payed an additional $1200 for a boat upgrade(1 week cruising). The boat we received was not maintained at all. After less than 3 hours, the gear change become totally non functional (worn out) we were stranded, drifting for about 3 hours until a technician could come to replace. to make the matter worse the thrusters guiding the boat left and right did not work. That took an additional hour after diagnostic to have new ones delivered! the gouge showing you the direction you were steering did not work, showed it to the tech guy at start he shake his head that is nothing he can do... I received no information that one gate up the river only opens on weekends!!! this rendered half the riverway unusable unless you do a one way cruise. Lots of other smaller issue like showers leaking, water for one of the toilets would work randomly, etc... Loved Minuetto 8 as a boat but the condition the boat was, gave it the one star rating. See my general review for details
