Looking for reviews of Le Boat - Douelle? The following displays a selection of Le Boat - Douelle reviews and have been sourced from Google reviews.
I was nervous about this trip, as I had read some bad reviews of LeBoat. But everything went well. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and spoke English. The Royal Mystique B was a wonderful boat, fairly new and in good condition, supplies were good. The River Lot and the villages are beautiful, but this river however, is not for novice boaters. There are very strong currents around the locks, making navigation difficult, and lots of rocks and submerged obstacles, and the docks are not well protected with bumpers. Boaters on the Lot call the boats on this river \"bumper boats\" because it is very difficult not to bump into the piers and locks. You WILL hit something even if you are an experienced boater, so definitely GET THE INSURANCE! Also, the optional late check-out and cleaning service are recommended. Don't buy groceries or supplies from them, you can get them in the village of Douelle much cheaper. Plan to refill the water tanks. get the boat septic pumped out mid-way, Study all the boating and river and navigation materials on the website and that they send you. You will get more manuals and guides with the boat. Listen carefully to their instructions. The boat and lock training could be more thorough, but they are very busy checking in lots of people at the same time. Also the marine maps need to be updated; for example, some of the docks that show electric service do not have it. You will need shore power if you plan to use the air conditioning at night. Be sure to get a boat with bow thrusters if you are going to the River Lot. We went in May, and there were very few boats on the river; beware, it might get pretty crowded and hard to find dock space in the busy season.
Boat worked Great & The River Was Beautiful!!! SO Much History in all the Little Villages we Stopped at..
Bon service en général, bateau de location propre. Par contre le gros point négatif, il ne faut pas tomber en panne entre deux pontons sinon dépannage quasi impossible ! En effet nous étions amarrés a une halte naturelle \"panneau vert\" et le bateau n'a pas voulu redémarrer. Après appel de l'assistance de la base nautique, ils nous disent que personnes ne peut nous dépanner car il n'y a pas d'accès direct de la route et que nous avons pas le droit de s'amarrer sur cette emplacement, sauf que cette interdiction n'est pas indiqué sur leur classeur de signalisation fourni au départ. Sois disant qu'ils nous l'ont préciser lors du briefing de départ, c'est possible mais il y a tellement d'information a retenir quand on est novice que c'est compliqué. Donc il serait bien de noter ce point important\" les écrits restent les paroles s'envolent\" surtout que la plupart des plaisanciers le boat utilisent ces amarrages sans savoir que le dépannage n'est pas prévu sur ces emplacements.
Excellente expérience, à ne pas louper pour les vacances
Guter Bootsverleiher, sehr nettes Team. Super schönes Hausbootrevier
