Formerly based in Renmark where she was booked out 75% of the time (prior to our renovation), Wow Factor has moved to a new home – at the heart of RiverGlen Marina.
Coined as the boat lovers’ paradise, the RiverGlen Marina is a full-service marina that offers a variety of riverfront and basin accommodations. Wow Factor, a Murray Houseboat, boasts an impressive array of modern features and amenities suited for any occasion or adventure that everyone – of any age, can truly enjoy!
This double-storey 12 berth houseboat is one of the few Murray houseboats with a rear-facing kitchen and dining plus driving upstairs/downstairs. With five separate living and entertainment spaces, plus five washrooms, there is room for everyone to experience a WOW Factor houseboat holiday.
The second story includes a 50m2 fully enclosed lounge where 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, 55” smart TV, 200+ DVD’s, Xbox, washroom and seating for 12, there is space to make wow factor houseboat holiday memories in any weather or temperature during the day or in the evening.
We are excited about the flexible Kings Living 4x double sofas with storage that we have on order for this space arriving soon.
Still at the second level is the 35m2 outdoor entertainment space that includes an 8-person spa that takes only a few hours to heat to 40 degrees. 75% of this space is protected from the wind, sun or rain from the houseboat roof and windows so everyone can enjoy the Wonders On Water. The outdoor kitchen and electric pizza oven can be cooking meals or food can be delivered from the downstairs kitchen in the dumb waiter. This space is designed for ultimate relaxation watching everything the river has to offer.
To ensure the WOW experience, we have on order flexible Kings Furniture three outdoor couches and chassis with storage. Two special-purpose bars are being fabricated that can be positioned along with the balcony or moved together under cover to enjoy the view over the rear balcony. Outdoor infra heaters will be installed shortly to maximise an all seasons houseboat holiday.
This Murray houseboat has been designed for an exclusive hire/drive client knowing the Murray River receives more sunshine than the Queensland Sunshine Coast. The Murray River is also now internationally recognised as having one of the darkest nighttime skies on the planet.
Guests of Wow Houseboats can view the all-year attraction of River Murray Dark Sky Reserve with the wow factor sky filled night from three of the entertainment areas and be as warm as 40 degrees from the spa bath whilst doing so. Alternatively, you may choose to watch your favourite TV show from the outdoor spa that will be installed soon!
Upstairs Entertainment Lounge
We are excited about the flexible Kings Living 2x double sofas with storage we have on order for this space to arrive soon (new furniture with 11-person leather modular sofas with 3 recliners and two double beds so there will be 14 sleeping options on the boat) *please note the total maximum of 12 people still applies *
The younger guests may prefer to all be together in this space instead of using the sofa bed in the front room that becomes private when closing the sliding door (parents may allow kids to play Xbox or watch the smart TV all night long)
