You can travel with 12 on Grand Classique boat holidays! These boats have five bedrooms with a variety of sleeping options from bunk beds to doubles. The décor of the Grand Classique is upscale, replete with pleasing wood finishes, tastefully color-coordinated plush upholstery and an open floor plan in the common areas.

Interior & Saloon

  • The saloon is situated in the center of the boat and by default becomes the main interior common area during boat cruises. A huge dining table that folds down out of the way when not in use and a giant U-shaped settee form the centerpiece.
  • The settee converts to a large double bed. The saloon’s radio/CD player with MP3/USB connectivity is wonderful when relaxing after a day on the water.
  • An inside steering station with good visibility and access to outside decks are other features of the saloon.
  • The big U-shaped kitchen/galley is well designed for preparing gourmet meals. There’s loads of counter space, a large electric refrigerator, ample sink, a stove, and lots of cabinets for storage.

Cabins & Bathrooms

  • Two aft (rear) cabins with plenty of natural light from large stern windows feature two single beds each that convert to double beds. Each has an en-suite bathroom with shower, new electric-flush toilet, and sink.
  • Immediately forward of the aft cabins is a smaller central cabin with two single bunk beds that are wonderful for kids.
  • Beyond the grand saloon, you’ll find two additional staterooms, one with a double bed in a spacious private cabin in the bow, and two crossover single bunk beds in a smaller cabin aft. The third bathroom is across from the two forward cabins and includes a shower, new electric-flush toilet, and sink.

Sundeck & Features

  • Sundecks are hugely important features on boat cruises, allowing everyone to relax together outside.
  • The Grand Classique’s sundeck is quite large with lots of seating, a wide umbrella for shade, and a fixed table for alfresco dining and cocktail parties.
  • The second steering station on the sundeck provides excellent visibility. The spacious saloon below the sundeck is easily accessed. There’s ample storage for bicycles.
  • A safe is aboard for your convenience and security. You’ll love the powerful bow thrusters for coming alongside at docks and in locks!
  • The onboard electrical system runs on 12-volt DC power and 220-volt shore power.
  • The Grand Classique is equipped with an efficient and reliable diesel engine.
