If you are looking for a day out on the water or a party venue with a difference, look no further than ‘Marge’ the Pontoon Boat. This vessel is a pontoon party boat for day hire, where up to 12 people can enjoy cruising the mighty Murray. The vessel is very easy to drive and manoeuvre and an ideal option for people who don’t have a boat licence as a drivers’ licence is all you need to take her out bearing in mind the .05 BAC driving laws apply.

The boat is completely fenced, making it safer for any children under adult supervision and the twin pontoons ensure it has extra stability on the water. With luxury seating, Fusion stereo system, iPod connectivity, ample room for an esky or fishing gear it is bound to suit everyone.

Plan a cruise to the famous Woolshed Brewery at Wilkadene, climb the Headings Cliffs lookout or simply take your fishing gear and let the river do the rest.

Our experienced operators will run through the vessel with you to ensure you have a trouble-free experience.
