Murray Explorer is fitted with a spa.

Murray Meanderer has continual power in all bedrooms, great if you have a CPAP machine. It also has a fantastic Weber gourmet barbecue.

Murray Entertainer has a very large solar system installed on the top deck which greatly reduces the normal generator running time. The resultant noise reduction also significantly enhances your peaceful and relaxing houseboat holiday on our wonderful Murray River  – whilst at the same time reducing your fuel costs.

Houseboat transfers from Adelaide Airport or hotels are available from C&D Exclusive Tours, a preferred carrier to the Houseboat Industry of South Australia. Tours can be arranged so you are collected from your houseboat to tour the famous Barossa Valley wine region. Other day tours can be arranged to suit your needs.
