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...

Thank You LeBoat for coming to Canada ! We look forward to your arrival on the Trent-Severn Waterway ! Other than LeBoat's recommendation as to staying at the Best Western in Smiths Falls the night prior to our departure, (we will never stay at a Best Western, or one of their affiliate companies, ever again), we enjoyed every moment of our experience ! Thank You to All of the Smiths Falls Team ! Refer to Customer Experience ! Quite frankly, this survey has become annoying - one general category, or an option for such, would accommodate our needs, versus sub-categories as you are presenting and we can not move forward until we place something in each box ...

We were so pleased with the professional and organized service. The staff at Smiths Falls were so friendly and knowledgeable and gave us a superb orientation. Our boat was like new as were the bikes we rented. It was worthwhile to order the grocery pack as it saved us preparation time so we could get on our way. The boat was easily managed with just two of us, and we were able to enjoy the beauty of the Rideau as we cruised between locks. We genuinely enjoyed the experience! The boat was well designed for cabin comforts and cruising the Rideau and locks. The thrusters really enhanced handling and docking. We chose a short itinerary so we could moor and enjoy the "like new" bikes that were provided and have a peaceful and relaxed vacation. We really enjoyed the peace and beauty of the Rideau and our short but perfect holiday.

The boat and the journey were really nice, the best part of our France vacation. Dominic at the Migenne base was very helpful and the boat was immaculate when we boarded. My wife and I were on a Horizon 1. It's perfect for two adults and felt good about the extra money we spent to get a newer boat. It worked perfectly and was very clean and comfortable. The second bedroom could accommodate two younger kids, but another adult couple would feel shortchanged compared to the berth up front. We found the second bedroom to be a great place to stash our luggage and bottled water. We did cook onboard a 2 or 3 nights and the kitchen is well equipped. The gas grill on the upper deck also worked very well. The bathroom is small but adequate. Even if you plan to eat out every night, make sure you have food onboard for those times when you're between destinations.
Hi there, thank you for your feedback. We're so glad that you had a great vacation and we look forward to welcoming you back on board another cruise soon.

Had an awesome time on Le Boat Horizon 1, cruising the Rideau Lakes system. Very well appointed boats, excellent working conditions, and the staff did a great job getting us ready to go on time and with the right knowledge of the boat and local cruising grounds. Hat's off to Le Boat Canada for their expending presence on the Rideau and looking forward to our next cruise! Luc Boucher, Ottawa ONTARIO Very good boat, easy to operate (thanks to the dual Thrusters...) and ideal weather conditions :)
Hi Luc, thank you for your feedback. We're so glad that you had a great holiday and we look forward to welcoming you back on board another cruise soon.

Horizon boat was in great shape. Checking and Checkout was easy. We could have used more local knowledge at start of trip. Recos for where to stay along the route would have been helpful. Excellent boat, we will rent again
