Made especially for exploring canals, the Grand Classique is the best place to laze the day away in the French countryside.

One of the larger commercial canal boats, the Grand Classique retains an air of elegance and sophistication as it cruises down the canals. The outdoor BBQ makes the perfect setting for long sunset dinners in the al fresco dining area, while the spacious sundeck is ideal for curling up with a good book. Feel like getting active? Pick up one of the included bikes and enjoy a day exploring the nearby hamlets and country paths on wheels.

Grand Classique is licensed to carry 12 passengers, however Intrepid only carries 8 passengers on its regularly scheduled departures and up to 10 on private and family departures.
