Houseboat Availability

Your houseboat will be available from 3pm at Riverboat Dock on the day you commence your hire.

 

All guests staying on the houseboat must sign our hire agreement and be present for the instruction and safety briefing.   The houseboat can not leave the mooring until all guests have signed the hire agreement and received the safety briefing.  

 

Please note that houseboat driving lessons must have commenced by 5.30pm ( or at least 1 hour prior to sunset outside of daylight savings) or you will be required to remain at the dock until the following morning. 

 

Should you stay at our dock on the first night of your hire our staff will be available between 8.30am and 11.30am the following day to give you a driving lesson and get you on your way. Assistance outside of these hours, that does not involve a problem with the vessel, will be classed as a call out and you agree to pay the company an hourly rate of $50 in respect thereof with a minimum charge of one hour.

 

Should you wish to return to our mooring or vacate the houseboat prior to the last night of your hire our staff will be available no later than 5.00pm to assist with returning to the mooring and collecting any cars that may be in the car compound.   If assistance is required any later than 5.00pm, and that assistance does not involve a problem with the vessel, then this will be classed as a call out and you agree to pay the company an hourly rate of $50 in respect thereof with a minimum charge of one hour.

 

Your boat must be returned and vacated by 10am on the final day of your hire. Houseboats vacated late, dirty or damaged will incur additional charges.

Please note that in the event that a representative of the company is compelled to spend time to give further instruction, to assist with a situation that does not involve a problem with the vessel or to drop off or retrieve vehicles from the car compound, other than at the start or finish of a hire, you will be charged for this service at an hourly rate of $50 in respect thereof with a minimum charge of one hour.
