About Horizon 2 PLUS

The Horizon 2, has two en-suite cabins, albeit a smaller master cabin than the Horizon 1 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.

The latest additions to our Horizon fleet, the Horizon PLUS models are identical in build, layout and quality to our standard Horizon fleet, but have a few additional features to make your experience even better.

Additional ‘Horizon PLUS’ features:

  • Hotel quality mattresses with memory foam – on all beds
  • Premium cushions on the sun deck seating
  • Smart TV’s on which you can watch films and TV shows and listen to music*

*Smart TVs can be used to watch films, TV shows and music streamed via services you have subscribed to on your smart phone. Reliant on receiving a good internet connection at time of streaming. Please note: sundeck sinks are not available on any of our Horizon PLUS 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.

The Le Boat team in Smiths Falls was amazing, and even when we ran into a problem on our last day the tech jumped in a truck and came out to solve our problem so quickly, we hadn't even finished coffee! Thank you to the amazing team at the base. We'll definitely come again. Loved the boat. Everything was as advertised, and worked super well. We really enjoyed having the 'new' model for 2022 and are looking forward to the next time already.
Good Day David, Thank you for you five-star review of your boating vacation on the Rideau Canal. We are very pleased to hear that you felt the trip was "perfect" and that you received top notch service from our team in Smiths Falls. We are very excited to hear that you will be coming back on board for another boating vacation in the near future! Best Wishes, Le Boat Team

A customer said

The experience could have been ***** however the final impression was that we as the client / guests were caught up in a dispute between Le Boat and the Smiths Falls Lock Operator staff who appeared to despised and ignore Le Boat, its customers and its staff. This was exacerbated by the Le Boat staff who then wanted to penalise us for the delay caused. This tainted what was otherwise a fantastic experience. The Horizon 2 Plus vessel was fantastic. The Rideau Canal was a perfect location and [all] other Lock Operators were most helpful. The boat was brilliant, could not have asked for more. However, it seems that Le Boat needs to manage its relationship with the Smiths Falls Lock Operators to prevent guests being affected by the stressed relationship.
Good Afternoon, We thank you for taking the time to provide a review of your boating holiday on the Rideau Canal and we are sorry to hear that your trip was marred by your experience with the staff at the last lock. As you are aware the locks are operated by staff at Parks Canada and usually they are very friendly and helpful to Le Boat customers, so we are surprised to hear that this was not the case at this time. We do maintain a pretty strong relationship with Parks Canada, but we cannot speak to this one-off experience you had with the staff on this day. We will pass along this feedback to their team. We are happy to hear that the rest of your holiday was very enjoyable and we hope to welcome you back on board in the near future. Best Wishes, Le Boat Team

This is the sixth time we are doing a cruise vacation with the company Le Boat As in all previous times we very much enjoyed an excellent, professional and very sociable staff. We got a decent return for the price we paid The boat was ready on time, everything was clean and cozy. We really like this type of vacation and will be back soon The boat we got was so new that we had to unload the nylons ourselves This boat is a work of art. Everything you ever need on a cruise like this is already in the boat. We did not experience any mishap during the entire cruise. All the accessories in the boat were brand new
Hello, thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with a 5-star review on your recent boating holiday. We're pleased you had such a lovely time on the Canal du Midi, that your boat was great and you got a good price. We very much look forward to welcoming you on board again soon. The Le Boat team.

Very good customer service. Could have provided shuttle to/from train station. Boat was great but needed pre-check and maintenance before cruise. 2nd cabin a bit short for tall adults.
Good Morning Terry, Thank you for your review of your boating vacation on the Rideau Canal. We pride ourselves in delivering excellent customer service so we are happy to hear you received just that from our team in Smiths Falls. We appreciate your honest feedback concerning a possible shuttle service from to/from the train station and that your boat required a pre-check and maintenance prior to your cruise. We will make sure this gets back to our team so that this feedback may be considered in the future. We hope to welcome you back on board in the future! Best wishes, Le Boat Team

The principal people we dealt with were all highly professional, interested, and competent. Small matters remained small matters and larger problerms were addressed with dispatch.. We had forgotten a few minor items and these were provided, graciously, by the staff as soon as they became aware of it. Our main disappointment was the boat itself. Although it was designed for a special purpose, and, for the most part, served that specialty well, it did not steer nicely and tended to wander at cruising speed. This meant that long spells at the helm were tiring and unpleasant. A lesser problem--and a fixable one-- is that the boat lacked screens in strategic places: Main cabin door, some portholes.
Good Day Judy, Thank you for you providing a five-star review of your overall boating vacation on the Rideau Canal. We pride ourselves in delivering excellent customer service, so it is great to hear that our Base Team in Smiths Falls were able to assist you wherever necessary and provide you with anything you needed on board. We hope to welcome you back on board again in the near future! Best wishes, Le Boat Team
