Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
SMITHS FALLS, ON — Le Boat is celebrating the launch of its new 2020 brochure with savings worth up to 25% off 2020 cruises booked by Sept. 2, 2019.
The company’s 60-page brochure, now in distribution, details product for 2020 plus includes details about the EBB.
With some 50 years of experience offering rental boat vacations in Europe, Le Boat debuted in Canada in May 2018, with sailings on the Rideau Canal. With a fleet of 940 boats, says the company, clients can easily choose a boat that best fits their budget, travel style and group size, with accommodations onboard for two to 12 people. All boats feature fully equipped kitchens, comfortable furnishings, showers and bathrooms.
Instructions and an orientation are provided to first-time renters, and no previous boating experience or license is required.
The new 2020 Boating Vacation brochure is now available to order or download by visiting Le Boat’s website at https://www.leboat.com/brochure-request. Deck plans and interior photos, information about our expanded Horizon fleet, details about the new Captain’s Club loyalty club and Le Boat #SpecialMoments are all included.
“What makes our vacations so memorable is our ability to help boaters find truly special moments – the kind you think back on years later,” says Lisa McLean, Marketing Manager for North America. “The unexpected turn where you emerge upon a beautiful oasis and wildlife, cruising into a small Italian village and discovering a surprise festival with music and tasting great food with local restauranteurs, or cruising the Burgundy Region of France and enjoying award winning wines from the top deck of your boat are the types of shared memories you create when you’re exploring the world on your Le Boat.”
Le Boat has also announced that it will continue to operate in both Canada and Ireland in 2020. The coming cruising season will see the introduction of Le Boat’s largest premier cruiser, the Horizon 5, into Ireland.
And on the Rideau Canal, Le Boat will add more Horizon cruisers at its base in Smiths Falls, ON, bringing the Canadian fleet to a total of 24 Premier Horizon cruisers ranging from two cabins to five.
The Premier Horizon fleet was designed exclusively for Le Boat and is available for parties between two and 12 people. The Horizon features a bright and spacious interior, large stateroom and a roomy ‘fun deck’ for even more outdoor adventure and perfect for families or a group of friends, says Mclean.
“Our Horizon cruisers are like floating condos, equipped with the latest technologies, and comparable in price to renting a cottage,” said Mclean. “Customers don’t need any prior boating experience or boating license to enjoy a Le Boat vacation on the Rideau!”
Altogether Le Boat operates a network of more than 39 departure bases across nine destinations in Europe and Canada, offering everything from full-on action-packed adventure to a slow-paced, relaxing chance to unwind, says Mclean.
Beyond the introduction of the newly built cruisers, Le Boat is investing over €150K to refurbish its Mystique and Royal Mystique boats from its Comfort Plus range.
