The Nicols Quattro S self-drive hire boat has 2 cabins for 4 persons, with a smart modern design for master and twin-bed cabins, an excellent shower-room and a spacious bright panoramic saloon and galley area. There is also a sofa-bed in the saloon.
Level with the saloon is a rear deck for sitting and dining, higher up is the upper sun deck with its own steering position, and there is forward terrace at the bow, perfect to relax with a nice cool drink and enjoy a boating holiday or vacation on the French canals.
Self drive hire boats are easy to operate and clients are always given thorough hands-on instruction before setting out – including about dealing with the locks that punctuate French inland ‘voyages’, that are straightforward to become familiar with, and that actually provide lots of interest for the boating holiday or vacation. Steering positions are located either inside the hire boat or outside (in the sunshine) on an aft (rear) deck or on the boat’s roof. Controls are simple – a steering wheel for direction and a throttle linked to an automatic gearbox. Push the lever to go forward, pull back to go into reverse and slow down. Some boats have bow-thrusters to push the boat sideways and help change direction at slow speeds.
On a boating holiday or vacation on the rivers and canals of France it is possible to stop – to moor up – almost anywhere. Against the river or canal bank in the middle of some gloriously peaceful scenic countryside, or to a quayside or pontoon in the middle of a picturesque historic village. Not only does every day bring fresh scenes, fresh pleasures, but also almost every turn of the waterway does the same.
There is also the possibility to bring dogs, enquire for details.
