Rental description

Spend an unforgettable holiday in an atypical ecological “lodging”: a solar-powered river catamaran. 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 river. 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 in length and 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 pleasant weather.

Sustainability criteria

The boat is equipped with 24 m² of solar panels on its roof and batteries. The system ensures the boat’s energy self-sufficiency, used for hot water and navigation.

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. As an eco-friendly contribution, vacationers on board are asked to take short showers.

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

Her project is intended to develop and promote river tourism on the downstream Lot. Her contribution is an unusual accommodation that enables you to discover the river with a sustainable means of transport, while producing renewable energy. This project is therefore part of an ecological, economic and tourism combo.
