Le Boat,Europe’s largest self-drive boating company, is now accepting orders for its new 2017 brochure, which will be available at the end of September. Featuring 76 colorful pages, the brochure provides detailed descriptions of the company’s 15 cruising areas in Europe, complete with maps, points of interest and suggested routes, as well as pictures, layouts and specs of the company’s 40 boats.
A major highlight of the 2017 season is the introduction of three larger Horizon models, following the sell-out success of the original Horizon. Designed and built exclusively for Le Boat by Delphia Yachts, the new models are ideal for larger families and small groups and will be available for the first time in Ireland, Belgium, Brittany and Charente in France. Offering the largest top-deck of any boats their size, Horizon models boast bright, spacious saloons with excellent panoramic views. Another development is the opening of a new Le Boat base in the old-world city of Hindeloopen in the Netherlands, replacing the company’s former base in Woudsend. Hindeloopen is a former fishing village, known for its many small, wooden bridges and wide range of water activities.
New Flotilla Dates
Le Boat also announced new dates for its popular Flotilla vacation in Italy. The perfect combination of independent and group boating, flotilla participants navigate the rivers, canals, lakes and lagoons of the Veneto region in their own boats, all while guided by an experienced skipper on the lead boat. Guests have the option to participate in group activities and tours, or go off on their own whenever the mood strikes them.
“Our 2017 season is already shaping up to be one of our best, with bookings for the new Horizon models filling up fast,” said Shannan Brennan, Le Boat’s head of Distribution and Marketing, U.S., Canada and Latin America. “We are thrilled with the growing recognition of the self-drive boating options by U.S. and Canadian travellers going to Europe.”

Le Boat is also offering early booking discounts for 2017 when booked before November 30th. Customers will receive 12% off regular booking prices on all 1-4 star boats and 5% off the Vision, Mystique and Royal Mystique. Special, select dates are also available at 20% off.
