The best boats in Paris
Jean BRUEL welcomes you to his stunning fleet
Jean BRUEL had already imagined how the 15 boats making up today’s fleet would look; all glass and light.
All the boats contain the latest equipment and cutting edge technology. To make sure you get the most out of visiting our beautiful capital, all our boats are renovated and decorated regularly so they remain up-to-date and on-trend, and also include a restaurant, several decks and a 360° view.
