Charter a Canal Boat with or without skipper

 

The perfect boat for your river cruises


If you're looking to sail down different rivers in complete comfort, then a canal boat is the ideal boat for you. If you're with family or friends, you can easily enjoy the calm and comfortable waters of river sailing. In Europe, there are more than 18,000 km of waterways, which makes it the perfect destination for canal boats. Some canal boats can accommodate up to 12 people comfortably.

 

 

Where to hire a canal boat?


The rental of canal boats and pontoons are becoming more and more popular around the world. As of now, France is the world's leading destination in Europe. With over 6,000km of waterways to explore, you can find a region that suits your needs. For example, French canal boat rental is most popular in:

 

 

 

  • The canal of Nantes in Brest

  • Le canal du Midi

  • The Seine in Paris
     

SamBoat also offers a selection of canal boats in popular destinations abroad like Amsterdam.
 

Do you need a license to rent a canal boat?

 

 

To navigate canals, it is necessary to have an inland waterways navigation license if the power of the boat is greater than 6hp.This obligation does not apply in the rental of boats less than 15m, which have a lower horsepower. There are still several canal boats you can rent without a license. We suggest you contact us directly or the port authority to ensure that you have valid qualifications to rent a boat without skipper.

Samboat offers houseboat rentals for all of your trips including day excursions, nights on the docks, weekend with friends or river cruises. With the largest canal boat inventory in France and Europe, you'll be sure to find the boat that fits your project perfectly. Canal boat hires are available for a week or a simple night with friends and family, Samboat offers you a large selection with or without skipper. If you're looking for a different boat, try a catamaran, sailboat or even rent a motor boat.
