The 12 passenger L'Impressionniste began life as a cargo barge in Holland before undergoing a complete transformation into the powerful canal and river cruiser she is today. L'Impressionniste cruise route covers some fine rural cruising, with plenty of opportunity to cycle and stroll along the tow-path and wander into nearby villages.



The Salon/Dining Room provides a comfortable 325 sq. ft. and features:

  • Built-in sofa area
  • Coffee table
  • Fully-stocked oak bar
  • Mahogany dining table with seating for thirteen (12) people


There are two (2) Sun Decks on board L'Impressionniste, one of which is shaded. The shaded deck is approximately 118 sq. ft. while the other is a spacious 437 sq. ft. open-air gathering area.  The beautiful deck furniture consists of:

  • 2 steamer chairs
  • 12 reclining chairs
  • 1 large table
  • 2 small tables

The Sun Deck is perfect for sun bathing and enjoying the beautiful scenery as you slowly wind through the canals of France.


Passengers are welcome to walk or cycle using the onboard bicycles as often as they like.  Most People choose to disembark the barge at a lock to visit local villages, then return to the canal and meet the barge further along (the barge travels slowly; therefore, this is not a problem).

An air-conditioned, 9-seater (including driver) VW Caravelle minibus and an air-conditioned, 6-seater VW Sharan minibus are also available for excursions by vehicle.
