Watch Le Boat on PowerBoat Television on this February

Le Boat has announced that it will be featured on PowerBoat Television this month (February). PowerBoat Television is a weekly, half-hour program focusing on the boating lifestyle and has been North America's premiere recreational boating show for 27 years. From fishing boats to luxury cruisers, great destinations, and helpful DIY segments, it covers what’s of interest to boaters at large and has been doing so since 1990.

The Le Boat Segment airs in two parts - part one on Sat. Feb. 2 and part 2 the following Sat., Feb. 9, 2019 at 11 a.m. EST on Global Television.The full episodes can also be viewed online one week after they air.

The show was filmed during Le Boat’s inaugural season last summer. Le Boat is known as world leader in boat rentals and best known for their canal cruise vacations in nine countries across Europe (with a fleet of 940 boats).

In May 2018, Le Boat expanded operations into the North America with the introduction of a fleet of 16 brand new Horizon Cruisers onto the UNESCO Rideau Canal.

Since filming, Le Boat has announced that it will be expanding its Canadian fleet to 20 boats and opening a second base on the Rideau in the harbor at Seeley’s Bay, ready for its season opening on May 17, 2019.

The addition of this well-located base offers visitors the chance to discover even more of this spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site since, previously, only return cruises from Smiths Falls were available. Now, holidaymakers will have the opportunity to venture on return trips from Seeley’s Bay or to enjoy a one-way route between the two Le Boat bases, exploring new terrains for the entire trip.

New for 2019, Le Boat is also welcoming four brand new Horizon Cruisers, including three of the Horizon 5 model designed for families and small groups. The Horizon 5 was introduced in Europe’s cruise market in 2018 and quickly became Le Boat’s most popular model. Measuring 14.74m x 4.35m, this luxury cruiser features five bedrooms and five bathrooms and sleeps up to 12 people.All Horizon models boast a spacious sundeck with a barbeque and sunbathing area. Their light and airy saloon and fully equipped kitchen has over-sized windows and opens up to a rear seating area through large sliding glass doors.

Le Boat’s season in Canada starts the week of May 17th, and runs until October 14, 2019. Renting a premier Horizon 1 Le Boat cruiser for a seven-night vacation in May 2019 is priced from US$2,225.65 (CA$3,386.50) for 7 nights.
