    WHAT MAKES WOW FACTOR UNIQUE?

    Wow Factor has an impressive array of features and amenities suited for any occasion or adventure that everyone can enjoy. There are a lot of reasons why Wow Factor is your best Murray Houseboat choice for having that ‘wow’ houseboat holiday experience.  But we can list the key highlights of what makes WOW FACTOR unique:

    WOW FACTOR LED LIGHTS / SIGNAGES

    Check out the WOW Factor lights up like a Christmas Tree – a wow-factor feature that guests can easily program with just one remote control. No other houseboat has lights like this! Wow Factor guests will surely enjoy lighting up the night with all 6 Wow Factor logos shining brightly – powered by 20 different LED colours, a wide variety of brightness options, bringing the WOW to your holiday memories. As our guests, would you have them change colours like in the photo or stay with your favourite wow factor colours? The choice is yours!

    FULLY-EQUIPPED REAR-FACING KITCHEN

    The rear kitchen: this is one of the features that make the WOW Factor unique. We challenge you to find another 2-storey, rear-facing houseboat with a rear kitchen and dining self-drive boat on the Murray River. We invite you to use either of the two slow cookers, providing the boat with delicious smells throughout the day. There are two full-size fridge-freezers in the kitchen, a microwave, a gas stove with an exhaust fan, and all the appliances you are used to at home. Check out the kitchen amenities here, which demonstrate all the extras we include with the boat. Watch Kate as she walks you through this everybody’s fave spot below:

    FRESH FLOWERS ON ARRIVAL AT REAR-FACING DINING

    A truly guaranteed wow-factor dining experience is made possible with the majestic views of the river. Love the sunrise or the sunset? The choice is yours depending on where you moor the boat to achieve that wow-factor dining experience with your family and guests. You can all enjoy every meal from either the 10-seat dining table or from the kitchen bar. No one misses out on the Wow Factor holiday experiences while staying cool or warm in this living space equipped with commercial reverse cycle air conditioning; a space where sophistication meets comfort throughout your houseboat holiday. Watch Todd as he demonstrates what’s instore for you when you arrive below:

    360 DEGREE-VIEW OF THE RIVER FROM THE UPSTAIRS LOUNGE

    Celebrate every wow-factor moment in this living space at Wow Factor! Guests will appreciate the upper 50 sqm fully enclosed lounge, accessed from the internal stairs, so everyone, including the driver, can enjoy the 360-degree views over the trees along the riverbank, filled with birdlife. With two reverse cycle commercial air conditioners, a 55’ Smart TV, 200+ DVDs, an Xbox, a washroom and seating for 12, there is an abundance of space to make your houseboat holiday memories in style. Guests can enjoy a book while sitting on the two 4m long window seats on both sides of the lounge and watching the “Wonders On Water” drift by. Watch Todd as he showcases the features of this wow-factor upstairs lounge below:

    8-PERSON SPA WITH SMART TV + PATIO HEATERS

    Todd and Kate really enjoy this space, and we expect our guests will do as well. The spa has a new cover, so it remains very warm when it’s not in use. A TV with a built-in DVD player has been installed next to the spa, so you can keep the kids entertained. This space also features two infrared heaters (the downstairs deck features two patio heaters as well), so it will feel like the sun is on your skin during the coldest of nights, perfect for Autumn/Winter. As owners who want to use the boat between hires, we want to bring a level of comfort to every aspect of the boat for guests who appreciate an elite houseboat holiday.

    3 SOFA BEDS + 4 MASTER BEDROOMS

    All four master bedrooms feature doors sliding directly onto the balcony deck, so the bright stars can be seen reflecting on the water from your bed. The four-queen master bedrooms have king-size Sheridon quilts and linens at a 1200 thread count. The 5th bedroom/lounge/downstairs helm is larger than the other four master bedrooms, equipped with more cupboard space and has 180 degrees views of the bank. Block out curtains if you don’t want to wake up to the unforgettable sunrise in the morning. The sixth upstairs bedroom/lounge is also the 50 sqm upstairs lounge. The new 11-person leather modular sofas with two double beds feature a variety of sleeping options available on the boat that is licenced to accommodate a maximum of 12 people. **with breakfast in bed table**

The rear BBQ oven with a side burner can cook up a feast to be enjoyed in the dining room. For those who like to cook their meat by temperature, don’t forget to use the meat thermometer (medium-rare is 52 degrees). Just watch how Todd enjoys grilling by clicking the button below!
