Welcome to Boatshed Midicanals

Boatshed Midi Canals image We are very pleased to be the first Boatshed brokerage dedicated to the Inland Waterways of France. Here at Boatshed Midi Canals we share a passion for canal and river cruising be it for work or for pleasure. Graham has over 20 years professional experience on the French waterway system on passenger and cargo vessels from 30 to 180 meters. He and Magali met in 1993 whilst working on the same river cruise ship.

We are really excited by the Boatshed French Inland waterway opportunity and are looking forward to sharing our passion for inland cruising with our clients and using our local and professional knowledge to their benefit. There are many different types of River and canal cruisers for sale in France as well as a plethora of Dutch barges for sale. Tjalks and Luxemotors are a well known favourite but what about a Stielsteven or a converted Yorkshire keel from England ? Ex hire boats such as Connoisseurs Penichettes and Nicols are also a popular choice for family holiday use.

As a Boatshed brokerage we provide lots of high quality photos and detailed, transparent information on all boats listed so customers know what to expect before they come to view. This means fewer wasted journeys, a faster smoother sales process and more contented buyers and sellers. Video walk arounds of the interior and exterior are added to most of the barges for sale and many of the canal and river cruisers for sale as well. This helps complete the pre-visit picture for perspective purchasers and gives a real feeling for the boat. Boatshed Midi Canals operates on all inland navigations from Lyon on the Rhone to Marseille or Bordeaux and takes in The Canal du Midi, Canal du Rhône à Sète aswell as the Latérale à la Gironde and Baise navigations.

Selling. No sale no fee and no obligation for exclusivity. Whether it’s a residential barge, a charter barge, a river cruiser or narrowboat we will give each and every one the same Boatshed attention to detail from our first visit right through to completing the sale.

Buying. Whatever your requirements call us and discuss your ideas. We will help you to find the boat of your dreams and then help make sure it doesn’t turn into a nightmare !


The best way to get from A to B (Auberge to Bistro) is by boat!
