Southern France Barge Association

Created in 2001, the Southern Barge Association is a grouping of independent barge owners. Various marketing efforts have been undertaken to promote cruising on the famed inland waterway Canal du Midi, including two barge show events in 2003 and 2007.

In association with the “Office de Tourisme du Canal du Midi”, the “Communauté de Communes de Canal-Lirou” and the “Compagnie d’Expolitation des Ports de Plaisance”,  the Southern France Barge Association is pleased to announce the dates for the 2014 international Boat show: April 3rd and 4th 2014

The town of Capestang, half way between Montpellier and Carcassonne, will be our home harbour for this event.

Our recommended hotel for your stay is the Hotel Clarion Ile du Gua in Narbonne. You can quote “boat show” when booking for preferential prices.

Should you select to stay there please inform us that you would like to benefit from our transfer service from the hotel to Capestang.
