General Comments by vendor
We are a well organised group formed 10 years ago with a Chairman, Treasurer, secretary and engineer with every member helping, taking on various jobs as they come up.

Amethyst is a comfortable cruiser stern boat and is fully equipped with all you need to enjoy the beautiful Canal du Midi and the Languedoc region, which has great restaurants and vineyards on route were you can stop for tastings, lots of pretty little villages as well as the main attractions of Carcassonne, Toulouse, Narbonne and Bezier there are very few mooring restrictions on route, however there are some charges, but they are minimal some give the first night free.

We are fortunate to have and English couple who live close by who look after shopping, laundry and the refuelling of the boat as well as transport to and from the airport, the nearest airport is Carcassonne about 30mins away. Ryanair fly there from Liverpool, East midlands, Stansted, Glasgow, Cork & Dublin

Boating on the Canal du Midi is easier than the UK as the majority of locks are electrically operated by the lock-keepers, all locks are shut from 12.30 to 1.30 for lunch.
All members make a monthly payment of £30 per share which covers the Annual Licence, Insurance and winter moorings, etc. this also pays towards some expenses incurred by dry-docking, we have no management fees as everything is done by the members.
To hire a similar boat on the Midi for one week would cost more than £1000 per week.
