The 'Estivale Octo' is the perfect cruiser for a group or large family who are looking to create an unforgettable experience on the waterways of the French countryside. Boasting four generously sized cabins and two bathrooms, this boat also has the option to temporarily convert the saloon into another double berth.
While cruising through the home of haute-cuisine, if you feel like cooking, the modern galley is fully equipped for a party of any size, with a large fridge-freezer and an oven with four ring-hobs. In the saloon, a TV with DVD player can be found, along with a CD/MP3 player with a radio. 220v plug sockets enable you to charge your phones, laptops or other devices while on the move.
The large windows allow panoramic views of the French countryside from the cockpit. The ground level rear deck offers a space perfect for dining alfresco, complete with furniture, and a sliding sun awning to provide a shady retreat if needed. A second steering position has been installed for your convenience, as has a deck shower and bow thrusters for easier mooring. A swimming ladder can be found on the rear deck, allowing you to easily swim in whichever French river you choose to explore. Alternatively, for an additional fee (starting at €87), discover the pleasures of on-board bathing by adding a heated splash pool – simply tow it along with your boat (pool available from selected locations: please enquire. Note that a pleasure boat licence is necessary due to the total length of the boat plus pool).
