France is a world-famous resort town. The country's canals are a system of navigable waterways. It includes rivers, natural and artificial canals and a few lakes.
Traveling on a yacht along the French canals, you will see all the beauty of cities, villages and give yourself an unforgettable yacht vacation.
Why do yachtsmen prefer French canals
The total length of waterways in France is comparable to the length of highways.
Many rivers of France's navigable waterways are connected to each other by artificial canals. Therefore, France can be crossed from the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean, go to the English Channel or along the Seine to get to Paris.
It is possible to travel on a yacht along the French canals in any season. Bad weather conditions, strong winds, high waves remain in the Strait of Gibraltar. Everything is calm in the internal waters of France.
The French canals include many navigable rivers: Loire, Meuse, Rhone, Seine, Garonne, Moselle, Marne, Dordogne.
Not all rivers and canals can accommodate sailing yachts. You will have to remove the mast frequently. Otherwise, you will not be able to swim under low bridges. Some canals are up to 1.8 meters deep. This makes it very difficult to navigate if the draft of the yacht or houseboat is greater than the depth of the channel.
