Rental description

Spend an unforgettable holiday in an ecological and atypical “home” by driving this electro-solar powered river catamaran yourself!

In 2006, Dominique was the world leader in solar-powered hotel boats and will be delighted to present her project to you.

This solar boat is the prototype of a fleet of 10 boats soon to be installed on the downstream Lot. You can rent this boat without a licence to sail on the Lot and take advantage of opportunities for swimming, fishing, visits, cycling, etc.

The boat is 14.5 metres long by 4 metres wide and can accommodate 6 berths. It is equipped with two shower rooms, two toilets and a kitchenette.

You can admire the magnificent landscape from the living room and the sunny terrace and relax in a warm atmosphere.

Sustainability criteria

The boat is equipped with 24 m² of solar panels on its roof, as well as batteries. The system ensures the boat’s energy self-sufficiency to produce hot water and navigate.

The boat is made of a fully recyclable aluminium hull and wooden structural elements.

Unlike many other river cruise ships that discharge their wastewater directly into rivers, Dominica’s ship collects it and discharges it properly into ports. Also to participate in this effort, holidaymakers are asked to take small showers.

Dominique thus proposes an alternative way of sailing: no pollution, no hydrocarbon discharge, no noise, total respect for biodiversity and human health!

Its project is part of a desire to participate in the development and promotion of river tourism on the downstream Lot, by offering unusual accommodation and a discovery of the river with a sustainable means of transport, while producing renewable energy. This project is therefore part of an ecological, economic and tourist dynamic.
