Soleil" has more to do with luxury yachting than barging - hence
the term 'River Yacht'. Her lines and mahogany and brass trim are
inspired by the classic motor yachts of the 1920's while her interior
brings you the best of contemporary design and comfort. Your hosts,
Guillaume & Tracey de Perthuis, are well?known for their experience
with luxury charter yachts world wide.
Not only does 'Roi Soleil' break new grounds through her high standard
of amenities and services, but she is especially designed for the
South and Southwest of France. The pictoresque region of the Southwest
is accessible to very few ships due to the restricted dimensions of
the historic Canal du Midi. 'Roi Soleil' is the first to take you
there in the comfort of two-level accommodation, to provide the best
views of this magnificent countryside, in optimal comfort. And when
it comes to sampling the attractions the region has to offer, we will
escort you in our air conditioned vehicle.
We will help you to discover France as only French natives can, and
our Anglo-Saxon background will make you feel totally at home. For
a complete Epicurean experience, discover the creative gastronomy
prepared by your onboard gourmet chef.
While you leisurely soak up the Mediterranean ambience in the lingering,
golden sunsets, savouring the regional wines and innovative gourmet
cuisine aboard 'Roi Soleil', you will gain a rare insight into the
very heart and soul of France - the luxurious way.
'Roi Soleil', with
up to 6 guests and her generous layout and ameneties, offers you a
level of comfort equivalent to that of luxury motor yachts.
The separate forward sun deck and the aft teak deck with built in

The interior is stylish and contemporary, with natural colours, polished
oak floors, mahogany joinery and an abundance of natural light exuding
serenity. Large tinted windows offer panoramic views of the Midi,
which are reflected in the interior by Provençale touches such
as the enamelled lava dining table and bar, hand-made Provençale
tiles, lava in the bathrooms, and pastels in the cabins.
