Given all the problems which can arise with this sort of cruise, a one-way trip and whether it remains a one-way trip and not a return trip cannot be confirmed until one week before departure and there will be an additional charge to pay on arrival. One-way trips are not possible with more than 2 boats travelling together.
ONE WAY (Fee refunded on arrival at the other base) :
|Boat category||1 et 2||3||4 et 5||6|
|Prices||70 ||90 ||110 ||130 |
In the case of a one-way trip, we offer to transfer your vehicle from the departure base to the base where you will arrive. The fees for this service depend on the route and tend to be between 54 and 100. It is advisable to reserve this service in advance. In certain places, you can also consider using shuttle buses, taxis or trains.
Transfer of Crew:
Another option for those participating in a one-way trip is our shuttle service which offers to drive one or more persons from the arrival base to the departure base in order to recuperate the vehicle. The fees for this service depend on the route, but range between 35 and 45 per person.
Free parking for your vehicle is possible everywhere. In certain bases we offer a closed car park for your vehicle from 20 to 46 per week, or garage car parking from 35 to 100 per week depending on the vehicle and the base.
All our bases are located near shopping centres where you can do your grocery shopping before departing. However, if you wish, you may order the FPP hamper. This hamper contains an assortment of products: salt, pepper, sugar, condiments, bread, water, vinegar, coffee, tea, milk, yogurt, lettuce, eggs, pasta etc. Request the complete list from our reservation team. The price is 70.
Pets are welcome aboard our boats. However, you are responsible for their behaviour and there is a fee of 15 to 90 at certain bases and at others there is no charge.
All the boats are equipped with a logbook which contains a certain number of navigational indicators. Nevertheless, if you wish to plan your cruise well, you ca order a river map when you make your reservation. There are maps available for all inland waterways. Be careful, sometimes 2 maps are necessary for certain itineraries (i.e. for the one-way trip from Digion to Pontailler you need the map of the Central Canal and that of the Canal Saône). These maps cost 22 each.
Some of our boats are equipped with bow thrusters, a small propeller located at the bow of the boat which can be used to direct the bow laterally. This propeller greatly facilitates the manoeuvres of the boat. However, the usage of this propeller is principally in the shallow canals when there is a high risk of taking in mud in the motor, or hitting rocks. If this propeller fails during the cruise it is often impossible to fix and hence the voyage will end without a bow thrusters, making manoeuvres more difficult. If you need to repair the propeller during the cruise, this will be charged to your account. Due to the unpredictable nature of river navigation, it is possible that the boat with a bow thruster that you reserved will not be available on the day of departure. In this case it will be deducted from a fixed amount (maximum 10 per day).

This service is only available on boats with another space on the deck, the Linssen Yacht 36, Linssen Vlet 1030, Espade Concept Fly, Tarpon 37, Tarpon 32, Tarpon 42 and the Tarpon 49. It consists of a table and stackable chairs (1 per person and an umbrella) and is free.
