“Class Act” on the Murray River is all class. We call her Classy for a reason. Available for hire drive, Classy is a luxury houseboat that allows you to experience a holiday of a life time on the Murray River, South Australia; one of the most beautiful parts of Australia. You’ll be mesmerized by the amazing cliffs, stunning sunsets and ancient river red gums.

Being one of the few boats on the river powered by solar for lights & appliances, means you can enjoy the serenity of the river. No need to start the generator to use spa, dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine etc. Immediately you immerse yourself in river time relaxation

Accommodating up to 10 people, there is plenty of room to enjoy the panoramic views the Murray River has to offer in comfort, luxury and style. It has 5 air conditioned bedrooms, 2 semi-ensuite bathrooms and 3 toilets – also a hot & cold shower over the deck.

The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, freezer, gas cooker, microwave, dishwasher and Nespresso capsule coffee machine. The upstairs features a spa, an outdoor setting and sun lounges where you can take in the serenity and the views. The sunsets are amazing!

Class Act on the Murray River provides you with the comfort and spaciousness on board in your own living area for your entertainment with special family and friends. Cook a gourmet meal in the kitchen or a barbecue on the rear deck while you relax and enjoy the serenity wining and dining at your leisure. Cruise the Murray while you ski off the ski deck, or fish or just take in the wonderful bird life that abounds the river.

Stretch your legs with a stroll along the river bank or take a swim off the swim deck on the rear. Gather up some kindling and logs and set up your campfire on the bank for a memorable night around the bonfire under a canopy of stars.

So sit back, relax, unwind and soak in the LED light multi-coloured SPA. Take in the view and let the Murray River work its magic in total luxury aboard Class Act.
