Offering central access to some of the most scenic stretches of the Murray River, Kia Marina is 8km upstream from Mannum and a brisk 1-ΒΌ hrs drive from Adelaide.

Representing over 26 – two to twelve berth Houseboats, from modest vacationers to luxurious lazy cruisers, Kia Marina offers the holiday maker a broad range of unique houseboating opportunities. Whether it’s a quiet spa on the sun deck in a secluded reach of the Murray, or a family fishing and watersports weekend, our extensive experience in the industry is sure to match you with your ideal house boating holiday. If you like, we can even organise your travel arrangements to and from Adelaide.

With houseboats powered by economical diesel, two stroke outboard or four stroke marine
motors, the Kia fleet is maintained to very high standards by our dedicated qualified staff. 7 day a week service, UHF radio or telephone contact with Kia base, Dmh maps and comprehensive boating tuition from qualified instructors all provide you with the peace of mind that ensures your stay on the Murray is a relaxing one.

With moorings available, Kia also offers management and servicing facilities, boat building, full slipping and marine maintenance. All of which goes to show we’re pretty serious about our house boating! We’re even offering first timers the opportunity of experiencing houseboating for free with introductory cruises – so please, don’t deprive yourself of the perfect holiday any longer.

Houseboating. That’s a holiday…
