Transat Distribution Partners With LeBoat To Offer Canal Cruising
Transat Distribution Canada (TDC) has partnered with Le Boat, owner of the world’s largest fleet of luxury canal cruiser boats, to offer Canadians a new and unique way to travel on the Rideau Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in the comfort of their own luxury houseboat.
“Vacationers are always on the lookout for original and unique experiences, while having the opportunity to change the scenery. Travelling on a modern houseboat offers just that”, says Louise Fecteau, General Manager, TDC.
“Because most agencies within our network specialize in leisure, travel professionals will be thrilled to add this option to their portfolio. I am sure many travellers are not aware that they have access to this type of experience in Canada, and that most importantly, you don’t need any boating license or experience to enjoy it”.
Le Boat offers four boat categories depending on your budget and the number of people you wish to accommodate. The categories are: Budget, Comfort, Comfort Plus and Premium. In Canada, Le Boat only its luxury Horizon Cruiser.
“Our fleet of boat are not like your idea of a “traditional houseboat”, said Lisa McLean, Le Boat’s North American Marketing Manager
“They have been designed specifically for Le Boat with the non-boater in mind and have been compared to a floating cottage or condo and resemble a private yachting experience. They come with a fully equipped kitchen, bright cabins with private bathroom and en-suite shower, roomy top deck ‘FUN DECK” with BBQ hot plate, sunshade and lot of space to lounge, relax and enjoy boating life.” McLean continued.
