The boat hire profession is moving to the high end

Interview with Thierry Lesieur, CEO of Rive de France.

Justhow big is the river boat rental industry?
“The sector is worth nearly 200 million euros, with some 2000 rental boats in France, and employs between 400 and 500 directly – that’s without the seasonal jobs it generates. The number of boats has hit a ceiling, but the market has undergone
some far-reaching changes, particularly with many companies merging in the last decade or so. There have also been real changes in the kinds of boats that are offered for hire, and the vessels available these days are more comfortable and fitted with high quality accommodation”.
