Testimonials for the Tarpon 42 Trio Prestige

Michael Shellard. Nivernais Canal

We appreciated the size of the saloon which allowed both crews to sup together in the evenings... - a total of 10 from the two boats.
Also the separate bathrooms facilities for each couple. Finally the upper deck area for sitting an again getting together with the other boat crew.
I'd rate the boat 10/10.
The route was mostly quiet French countryside with occasional villages and towns... Uncrowded waterways, manned locks and obliging folk a the locks, shops and cafes...

The holiday was perfect in weather, boats, food and drink, travel to and from... and we all came back firm friends.

Hotels Afloat met our every need and Emma helped us to arrive at the best solution for our party of 10 (ages 61-75!) splitting into two identical boats and enjoying the space that allowed.
Altogether an unforgettable and hugely enjoyable week.
Thank you very much.
