Locaboat self-drive boat rentals


Graceful Penichettes are the trademark of the Locaboat fleet, which also includes the Europa with its home comforts and the stylish Linssen yacht for cruising in Burgundy, the Nivernais, the Alsace and in Ireland.

Penichettes are traditional style boats, which are provided with modern amenities for 2-12 guests, and are available in France, Germany, Holland, Ireland & Italy.  The latest edition to the fleet, the Penichette Evolution, is a superb combination of the gentle lines of a penichette with the stylish interior and space of a Linssen yacht.  

The modern style Europas are also equipped with radio, satellite TV, CD, MP3 and DVD player, electric toilets, hair dryers and mosquito nets on key windows.
A blend of the traditional and modern, the Linssen is perfect for river cruising.
