  • Plentiful closets and other storage make the sleeping cabins free of clutter.
  • Cabin fans in all areas are welcome in hot weather.
Magnifique Sundeck

  • The second steering station has superior visibility.
  • The onboard electrical system runs on 12-volt DC power and 220-volt shore power.
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.

Great holiday, a bit expensive.Boat was clean and ready, fully equipped. Only issue we had was related to the return time and bridge opening time. This is a red flag to anyone booking out of Portumna. Great boat, plenty of space, rooms, toilets

From arrival to end the team at Le Boat, Italy were amazing. They did everything they could to assist us. We were a family of 7 who hired the Magnifique for a week. On arrival arranging for a local taxi to take us to the supermarket, providing us with all the must know information, calling us to make sure we all OK and then arranging our taxi back to the airport. It was one of the best ways to see Venice and its surrounding islands. Fabulous holiday that we all enjoyed from a family ranging in age from age 8 to 80. Perfect size for a family of 7.
Dear Debbie, Thank you for taking the time to provide a five star review. We pride ourselves on delivering excellent customer service therefore we are pleased to hear that you received a warm welcome in Italy. It is a fantastic destination to explore by boat and we are delighted that the whole family were able to experience this. We look forward to welcoming you on board. The Le Boat Team

The overall experience was excellent. Boat handover and initial training was great. Did have a problem with the heating but it had just had a new heating motor fitted and was problematic. Would love to do again in warmer weather. Great boat, very clean and well equiped, apart from the heating.
Hi Craig, Thank you for the positive feedback. I'm glad to hear that you had an excellent experience and that you found the handover and boat induction informative. We hope that we can welcome you on board again soon. All the best, The Le Boat Team

We felt the on water, hands on boat orientation was excellent. We felt we knew the extent of the boat’s maneuverability and capabilities. There were several issues with the boat that we didn’t discover before we left. There were lights out in the shared shower. That meant that 4 people could not shower when it was dark out, very limiting and not convenient. Two cabins had water leaks onto the beds, forward and starboard aft. Both required use of kitchen pots to catch water when it rained, 3 nights! The aft cabin mattress was so wet those two people had to sleep together in the single bed, way too small for two. Although they tried to make the best of it, it was clear they were tired and not well rested. The forward cabin wetness was on a corner and more easily worked around. We have chartered from LeBoat twice before and never had issues like this before. One of the 4 rented bikes kept having chain slippage issues. The agent at Castelsarrasin refunded our account for one rental, which was the right thing to do. We explained our concerns to the check out person who said they would check into the water leaks immediately, and before the boat went out again. Great space, layout worked well for the 8 of us.

Did cruise from Migennes to Tannay in mid September 2019. Le Boat delivered in all respects - a well appointed boat, good instruction and friendly and helpful service. They also offered support on the way, should we have needed it, but it wasn't necessary. The boat didn't miss a beat and we were delighted with it. Well done! As a holiday a week on French canals with LeBoat is very hard to beat. Golden rule is to always get a boat bigger than you think you'll need, preferably with a bathroom for each couple.
