Our electric boats

We have seven electric boats available, accommodating from one to six people (480 kg (1052 pounds) at the most). With a length of 4.75 m (15.6 feet), a width of 1.95 m (6.4 feet), and with its 1.6 kW motor, the Ruban Bleu Scoop reaches a maximum speed of 8 km / h (5 mile per hour).

The electric boats can be driven without a specific licence. You are in the heart of the Verdon regional natural park, and thermal motor boats are forbidden on the Sainte-Croix Lake. Our boats are silent, easy to drive and stable.

The maximum capacity is 6 people.

All our boats have an arbour, so that you can protect yourself from the sun. However, the arbour is not suitable in case of rain or strong wind.
