Lille’s Nautical Base

Customers boarding a boat in Lille

Paris, Meaux, Fontainebleau, Strasbourg and now Lille, nothing can resist to “Marin d’Eau Douce” wave.

We have just docked in Lille in this year 2019, you can now sail the “Deule” on board our electric boats and without any licence !

Our base, located “2 Avenue Mathias Delobel”, in the “Citadelle” park, near the Zoo of Lille and facing “Vauban” garden, will welcome you all along the season.

Do not wait any longer, come visit us and discover a fun and unusual activity in Lille that has already seduced over 200 000 sailors around France.

Everything that brought success to Marin d’Eau Douce in the other cities will be also available in Lille. Our electric boats obviously but our famous “Captain Corner” as well. Chill on our terrace or on board our boats and enjoy a selection of cold and hot drinks and a large range of snacks (ice cream, waffles, crepes, hot dog, french fries, deli meats, cheese…) that will delight young and old alike.

We have chosen to settle on the “Bras de la Barre” next to the lock with the same name, just 12 minutes walk from the city centre and 10 minutes drive from the train stations.

Come and discover the “Deule” like you never saw it before on board our fully electric boats,licence free and soundless and peacefully enjoy the surrounding fauna and flora with your family and/or friends.

We offer you different options, from the short one hour sail to the possibility to enjoy our boats for the day. (More details about our itineraries in the page “Itineraries in Lille”).

We haven’t forgotten the youngest ones with our five mini boats : the ferry, the police ship, the fire boat, the speedboat and the trawler. The kids under 12, accompanied with an adult, can pilot them.
