About Vision 3 SL

Designed just for Le Boat, you’ll love the huge upper sundeck, spacious saloon and gorgeous private cabins! Sideways thrusters at front and rear make the boat as easy to manoeuvre as a car. The three staterooms have full-size twin beds that convert to doubles, plus there’s a fold-down bed in two cabins (suitable for a child 70kg max) and an extra bed in the saloon, making the boat ideal for families and friends!Vision SL models have stairs that allow direct access to the bridge from the galley, making moving around that much easier.

Vision 3 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 3 SL Interior & saloon
  • All interior spaces of the Vision 3 Diesel were designed to provide maximum light. Soft color tones, a contemporary décor, and an eye toward functionality make the boat a pleasure for cruising. The saloon offers superior visibility of your outside surroundings.
  • Convertible settee in saloon sleeps one additional person
  • The radio/CD player and flat-screen DVD player are both great for onboard entertainment.
  • The interior steering position is a real plus in rainy weather, and access to the foredeck from the saloon makes line handling easy.
  • The modern kitchen/galley has a gas oven and stove, a microwave, and a large refrigerator/freezer. The galley is fully equipped for preparing gourmet feasts or simple meals.
Vision 3 SL Cabins & bathrooms
  • Each of the three staterooms are the same size and have regular-size comfortable beds, which can be arranged as either one double or two singles.
  • Two cabins have a drop-down bunk suitable for one child (70kg max).
  • The contemporary en-suite bathroom facilities in each cabin include showers, sinks, and electric-flush toilets.
  • Full-standing headroom of 6 feet 5 inches (2 meters), plus level flooring give you a sense of luxury accommodations ashore.
  • There’s plenty of storage in these spacious hotel-style staterooms.
Vision 4 SL Sundeck
  • The secondary steering position is terrific, affording the skipper excellent visibility in locks or when coming alongside a quay.
  • For entertaining and alfresco dining in style, there’s a barbecue hot plate, bar fridge, sink, and cupboard.
  • Easy access to sundeck with stairs from galley.
  • Each boat is equipped with a collapsible sun canopy (bimini) for cruising in bright sunshine.
Vision 3 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 two rearmost cabins.


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

LeBoat staff were very helpful with all questions before we arrived and also with organising a taxi to get from the train station to the Homps base. The staff member who showed us the boat was great and made sure we knew everything we were supposed to do. Boat is easy to maneuver. Spacious accommodation with all amenities including air-con.

We always try our best to treat our customers with the same high service level at all our bases and want to apologize if you were partly not satisfied.

Our questions were quickly answered the invoice system is clearly set out. The Vision 5 with x3 cabins was perfect for our group. The fold down bunk in each room gave us luggage storage. Plus the ensuite was well laid out and gave you space to move. Plenty of cupboards and shelves for a couple. The galley was well equipped and the rooftop space and steering was excellent.

The orientation was too short for us to be comfortable maneuvering the boat. It took a long time to learn the use of the "Joy Stick and Bow Thruster." We do feel the model of boat was too large for easy navigation of the canal. Support services were excellent. Response time when we had problems was very quick and service personnel very efficient and helpful. All staff were very congenial as well. Overall, the trip was a wonderful time with good friends and lovely views of rural France. We would recommend your services to others.

I would rate your service Excellent. The person at check in at the Trebes base was absolutely wonderful. Easy, clear, friendly. The boat was great. Having 3 equal staterooms was important. Joy stick made driving simple.
