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's service is fantastic. Pre cruise communication and information was outstanding. From the moment you arrive at the base in Smiths Falls you are treated like a VIP by their friendly, knowledgeable and very patient staff. Load in is easy and stress free, with ample barrows and shoreside help to transport luggage and supplies to the boat. The training on how to operate the boat was very thorough and surprisingly effective - within an hour we were able to maneuver our 48 foot vessel using the incredibly user-friendly system of thrusters and controls the boats are equipped with. They truly leave nothing to chance to ensure the whole experience is relaxing and great fun. Excellent

Excellent service. Very friendly professional and knowledgeable. We knew renting a houseboat would be memorable but we weren't sure if it would be a good or bad memorable. Definitely was a good memorable. Definitely would recommend.
