Welcome aboard Scallywag!

The perfect small hire houseboat for your next Murray River holiday escape. So easy to handle with only 2 people.

A very popular 2 - 4 berth houseboat, Scallywag is a breeze to drive and very economical to run. Scallywag is big enough to give you tons of space, but small enough to make you feel confident in setting forth as Captain of your own vessel!

Modern, light and airy, take in the views with panoramic windows, and the raised front ceiling and extra windows add to your a feeling of being surrounded by nature.

Scallywag has a host of features including free to air satellite television, a fully equipped galley style kitchen with dishwasher and a comprehensive library of DVD's, games and books for your enjoyment! There is a hooded bbq on the front deck and with reverse cycle air conditioning and gas heating you can travel in year round comfort.

Scallywag has two queen size bedrooms, with the option of having 2 single beds in one of the rooms. Imagine lying in bed and watching the stars twinkle, and the moon reflect off the water.

There is plenty of storage and of course, extra blankets and pillows for your comfort. You can sip a crisp dry white as you enjoy the superb sunsets from the timber top deck, catch up on the latest magazines while relaxing on the sun lounge, or sit your rod in the holder and watch the pelicans pass by. On board Scallywag, you are in charge of your own destiny - just relax and enjoy!

If you are travelling from Victoria, call into Banrock Station for lunch, or stop at Waikerie for some indulgent chocolates at Havenhand, and grab some EAT LOCAL treats at Illalangi.

For a totally relaxing holiday (or a romantic getaway for 2 - we can even organise the champagne and chocolates), this is the boat for you!!!
