Linssen ‘9’ series boats are unusually complete, arranged for maximum convenience and comfort.
The boats’ sailing characteristics are truly exceptional. Thanks to their unusual chine-type hull, these boats are highly stable and their new shape below the water line combined with the shape of the keel and the rudder, and the rudder balance means that they are easy to pilot in reverse, even counter to the propeller’s direction of rotation.
They are an excellent choice for first-time boaters and people with young families, who will surely appreciate the functional and comfortable space on board. And the Linssen Grand Sturdy ‘9’ series are an equally excellent choice for the experienced boat-owner. Indeed, former sailboat or motorboat owners are often swept away by the boat’s modest dimensions and yet spacious interior, where they will never lack the comfort and convenience to which they are accustomed.
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.
