Barge charter with Houseboat Navigator

We invite you to use the Houseboat Navigator booking system. We have been dealing with barge charters since 2009. Thanks to many years of experience and the gradual expansion of our base, we can offer you the services of a large number of shipowners in many locations.

We offer barge charter in countries such as France (including Anjou, Aquitaine, Brittany, Lot, Loire Valley, Alsace, Burgundy, Camargue, Franche Comte, Canal du Midi, Saône Valley). Beautiful landscape, attractive monuments, favorable climate and, of course, French cuisine - these are the undoubted advantages of this country.

For those who like a little more challenge on the water, locks, bridges and sailing culture, we offer barge charters in the Netherlands.

Lovers of luxury will probably like Finland and local barges equipped with saunas. Great destinations for cruises on Europe's inland waterways are Italy, and more specifically the Venetian Riviera.

Quick and convenient access by car is an undoubted advantage of our close and slightly distant neighbors. Barge charter in Germany (e.g. Brandenburg, Mecklenburg) and Hungary (e.g. Tokaj, Tisza) is an option worth considering for motorized groups.

Secret seekers will probably be happy to charter in Scotland, where the route leads us through Loch Ness, inhabited by a mythical creature. And lovers of fries, chocolate and beer should definitely visit Belgium. In Portugal, we can swim on the Grande Lago, the largest lake of this country. In Ireland, in addition to swimming on a barge, you can sit in one of the local pubs in the evening and enjoy Guinness.

In order to check all sailing directions, please go to the list of available locations or simply use the charter search engine. Our prices are identical, and often lower than the official prices proposed by shipowners. If you have a non-standard inquiry or would like to receive an individual offer, please use the Quick Inquiry button at the top of the page.

We always respond quickly, and we are at your disposal at any time.
