Boat description

 

The Bassac are three boats sharing the same standards and mostly differing in size. They are made of wood according to tradition while respecting the best standards, all cabins have a private bathroom, and are air-conned, sound-proofed, heat insulated, and fitted with fire detection.

They are meant for discovery cruises and favor the contact with outside: they offer several different living areas each, including a common room that can be completely opened, a rear upper deck suitable for dinner and a front sundeck.

There is power and hot water at all times on board, and they are quiet enough to allow the passengers to sleep while the ship is under way.
