Vision 4 SL's key features

2020 Vision icon

Same boat. Same comfort. Better experience!

The Vision fleet has been a firm favourite among our customers for years due to its spacious interior, massive sundeck and excellent features. However, some of our customers told us that they found them to be a little too high-tech and complicated to use. So we've invested over €7M and have made some BIG technical changes to the boat’s controls and onboard systems… and now they are MUCH easier. In fact, they are now much the same as our new Horizon boats which receive rave reviews.


For those who have experienced the Vision before, we can’t wait for you to experience the difference. When you step on board, you will see little change. You’ll find the same great space, layout and features as before. The only thing notably missing is a joystick, which we've replaced with easy-to-use Bow AND stern thrusters to propel the front and rear of the boat sideways. You will notice a more straight-forward pre-departure briefing and a more relaxed feeling as you cruise with increased confidence.

Vision SL Saloon
  • Luxurious and spacious interior, tastefully furnished and equipped.
  • Large open plan saloon/kitchen galley with music system, DVD player, interior steering position and access to fore deck from saloon.
  • Convertible settee in saloon sleeps one additional person
  • Modern design kitchen galley with gas oven, hob and large fridge, fully equipped for great onboard entertaining.
Vision 4 SL Cabins & bathrooms
  • The cabins in Vision 4 SL are all the same size and designed for privacy. Each cabin has a bed that can work as a double or two singles.
  • The full standing headroom (6.5 feet/2 meters) will appeal to taller cruisers, and level flooring makes the staterooms feel more like luxurious hotel suites.
  • Each stateroom has modern en-suite bathroom facilities that include sink, state-of-the-art electric-flush toilet, and enclosed shower.
Vision 4 SL Sundeck
  • Huge top sundeck with steering position, BBQ, bar fridge and collapsible, sun-canopy (bimini)
  • Easy access to sundeck with stairs from galley
  • Additional sideways thrusters at front and rear steering for exceptionally easy manoeuvring and mooring
  • 220v shore power & 220v power while you cruise (high wattage appliances not recommended for use while cruising)
Vision 4 SL Other features
  • Direct access to the foredeck from the saloon
  • Large rear platform which makes mooring and boarding easy
  • The stairs from the galley to the sundeck, new on this model, make entertaining even easier.
Air cooling and air conditioning

When the temperatures soar, air conditioning can help make your night’s sleep a little more comfortable. Thermostatically controlled to keep the internal temperature up to 10°C below external temperature. 


There is a thermostat in the saloon, which collectively controls the temperature in the saloon and frontmost cabin, and a thermostat in the rear cabin which collectively controls the temperature in the three rearmost cabins.


Please note: Performance significantly reduces if canal/river temperature is too high.

Le Boat gave us a nice, large boat for a group of 8. There were a few small problems, including bikes that developed flat tires, a sledge hammer with a bad handle that made hammering stakes difficult, and an electrical breaker problem that caused lights not to work for several hours. However, overall the canal cruise went as planned and everyone was pleased. The galley is very functional and roomy for a boat. The deck at the top was a nice place for everyone to relax. When we brought the boat back to a Le Boat base, the breaker issue and the bikes were fixed (although there was another bike flat tire later). The people in France were very friendly, and the wine and food were excellent. We are very sorry to learn about the flooding in Trebes that happened soon after we left! Nice boat! It was very easy to maneuver thanks to bow and stern thrusters. Great galley too.
Many thanks for your comments. We appreciate your taking the time to tell us about your experience. We hope you'll cruise with us again sometime soon!

Overall, very good. Service and support couldn't be faulted. Mattresses on the boat could have done with 'freshening up'. Not a major issue though. Met all our needs. Very comfortable boat.

Everything was top class and they even arraigned for free transport to get to the boat. They had everything ready and there training was thorough. The boat was big and perfect just as we expected. Perfect trip for 6 adults, the boat was plenty big enough. Even en suite bedrooms.

It was all good. Some small niggles due to a lack of attention to detail. The weave was too cold to use the bridge, especially the wind which was unfortunate but it was early season. Enjoyable and enlightening experience
