IRRESISTIBLE

“
Simply Irresistible has spoiled us for other boats now,
even though we are experienced campers along the
Murray and have used houseboats elsewhere. We were
four adults and seven children, and everything was so
fresh, clean and comfortable with everything we could
possibly want. Other boats seem pokey in comparison.
We towed our speedboat and skied, then got in the
warm spa, and stopped at different spots for walks in
the bush. We were struck by how wide and beautiful the
river was in the downstream section. Next year we hope
to come again, and other family members are keen, too.

FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE AND
REASSURANCE:
Living on the Murray is the best way to
appreciate all it has to offer. Houseboating
offers the ideal way to forget work and
worries, and travel at your own pace. You
can do everything, or nothing, as you wish.
Downstream is marked by the interesting
Torrumbarry Weir, essential for modern-day
irrigation for the surrounding rich farmlands.

STEP UP TO YOUR PLACE
IN THE SUN
The upper deck is your "terrace" from
which to view the beautiful, age-old Murray
River panorama. You’ll find a spa big enough
for six, a full-size barbecue and not one but
two bar fridges, all shaded by an extended
canopy. Perspex and steel railings, granite
benches and modern mesh chairs add to the
streamlined, sophisticated feel. A perfect
place to bask after breakfast, or to raise a
glass as the glowing sun goes down.
IT’S THE POWER THAT MAKES
THE DIFFERENCE …
The super silent generators of Simply
Irresistible houseboats allow you to hear the
creatures of the bush and the water – the
splash of a fish, the call of the birds at dawn
and dusk, the croak of a frog. No jarring
machinery noises intrude as you glide along
the river.
SLEEK, SUPREMELY
COMFORTABLE INTERIORS
Appliances are in gleaming stainless steel,
benches in black and white granite. The 12
seat dining table is glass, the sling seats
leather. Opulent couches in cocoa suede and
the warmth of the timber flooring add rich
textures to the mix. The four bedrooms, each
with ensuite bathroom, are decorated in
white with matching snowy linen. All windows
are fitted with the latest E screens, rather
than blinds or curtains, for coolness and
privacy.
Our ground-breaking battery/inverter
system stores power so that – unlike other
boats – you don’t need to run the generator
just to watch TV and use lights. This
convenience is unmatched elsewhere.
The high-capacity electrical system runs a
large, two-door electric fridge-freezer with
icemaker. This, and the state-of-the-art
equipment in the gourmet kitchen, mean you
can entertain with ease.
The full-size home theatre system and the
CD sound system are built in, along with
storage and preparation areas.
This creates plentiful space, even with
the maximum 12 people on board.

“
The value for money was fantastic! It was the fourth time we had been on a houseboat, but this
one had so much of everything. Between two couples we had eight children ranging from 21
down to eight and with all the ensuites to the bedrooms we had no hassles. The girls loved the
heated spa. Everything was top of the range, watching DVDs with the enormous couch and
enormous TV was like being at the cinema.
