Exploring the canal in style

> www.lyonne.fr (April 2012)

From June 2012, Les Canalous, who build and hire out river boats, will be offering a brand new craft, sailing out of their base at Tonnerre.

The new vessel’s line, inspired by the traditional boats of the Loire, is a stand-out sight among the more ordinary barges moored at the marina in Tonnerre. With its wide bay windows and wood cabin-topped hull, this houseboat is a very different way to discover the Burgundy Canal.

With this unusual craft, Les Canalous are aiming for the top of a niche market. “We are looking to offer a comfortable product that meets the standard of a three star hotel, with a large lounge including three berths, a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen area and wardrobe. Our log-cabin style houseboat is ideal for a couple on a romantic break, or a small family. ”

Aimed mainly at the short break market, this boat – which requires no sailing permit – can even be hired at the last minute for one day and night.
