Le Boat, Europe’s number one self-skippered boating vacation company, is offering boat rentals on waterways that provide easy access to both the starting point and eighth stage of the Tour de France, July 4 – 26, 2015. Boats are available in Vinkeveen, Holland, near the start of the race, and in Brittany, which is located near the famous race’s later stage. For a limited time, Le Boat is also offering a 10% discount on its luxurious Vision model boats, which accommodates up to nine persons.
Travel agents earn 10% commission per boat on each Le Boat rental.
With models that can accommodate up to 12 passengers, Le Boat’s rental fleet of stylish, fully equipped vacation boats offers a reasonably priced alternative to the limited and often high priced accommodations at hotels in the vicinity of the race. Boats are available at the company’s station in Vinkeveen, Holland, from where boaters can cruise to nearby Utrecht, the starting point of the race. Boaters can then follow the first stage of the race to Oudewater and Gouda. Boats are also available at Le Boat’s rental stations in Messac and Dinan, in Brittany, France. Both stations are located near Rennes, the beginning of the races’ 179 kilometer 8th stage. Boaters can welcome the racers in Rennes, then follow close to the race route via Mûr-de-Bretagne and Vannes, all in France.
No experience or boating license is necessary for renting a boat. Le Boat provides instructions and an orientation to first-time renters, ensuring they get the most out of their boating holiday. Unlike conventional cruises that follow a preplanned itinerary, Le Boat customers are free to set their own course, and stop and/or overnight at locations that are of most interest to them. Le Boat also offers a free app that travelers can download from the Apple and Google Play stores.
