OCTANT I boat
Discover the LUXURY of the little things
Restored by Octant Hotels Douro, the Octant I Boat is an emblematic vessel of historical importance for the Douro region (remembering the Rabelo boats), paying homage to the rich heritage of Port wine production and the ancient riverbank carpenters.

Onboard, you will have the opportunity to experience the magic of the region while enjoying an exclusive and private journey through the waters and landscapes of the Douro River.
