Whilst narrow boat holidays are very popular in Britain, the width of the canals in France, Holland and Germany allow us to offer a large choice of ‘wide beam’ boats on our waterway holidays.
Our exclusive and very popular Penichettes offer all the benefits of a traditional narrow boat holiday, but the additional width means they are far roomier and therefore more comfortable.
Locaboat’s Penichettes, which are styled on the traditional ‘working boats’ that used to ply the canals of France, are available in many areas of Europe. Carefully designed to provide safe and relaxing self-drive cruising holidays and are very simply to manoeuvre, with no previous experience or licences necessary.
Whether you choose to cruise the Venetian lagoon, visiting Venice itself as well as the islands of Burano and Murano; explore the Shannon-Erne rivers of Ireland, or join the many boating enthusiasts at the Amsterdam Canal Festival, your experience will be made all the more enjoyable in one of our cruisers.
