To travel in unique style, look no further than the 'Estivale Octo Fly C'. While this boat is big, it is not at all difficult to pilot due to its modern bow thrusters, and requires no special license or training to drive. Four cabins and four bathrooms are available at the very highest comfort standards available on a boating holiday, and the saloon can be temporarily converted into a double berth if required. The 'Estivale Octo Fly C' is fully equipped with a large fridge-freezer, oven with 4 hobs, TV with satellite antenna, a radio / CD / MP3 player, shore supply of 220 volts and a generator to allow 220 volts power even while cruising. In addition, the canal boat has air conditioning for additional comfort, which is especially welcome in the warm climate of the Canal du Midi, or in Alsace during the summer months. The large windows allow panoramic views of the French countryside from the cockpit.
On the rear terrace, a table and chairs can be found alongside a swimming ladder and a deck shower. If swimming in the river doesn't appeal to you, 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 with the pool attached). On the upper terrace, a small dining area and outdoor kitchen can be found in the shade underneath an awning, alongside a second steering position and two sunloungers.
