JFS Rhyanna was first launched in July 2010 and is the newest houseboat on the Tweed River. She has three separate bedrooms, all doubles and if you need the extra bed, there is a double sofa bed in the lounge room.
With her timber finishing Rhyanna presents a stylish finish. On the back deck there is a stainless-steel BBQ and ladder access to the water. There is also hot and cold running water on the back deck and a hand held shower.
For the fisherfolk, there is a scaling board and sink to clean your catch. If you don’t like ladders, there is a great set of stairs giving access to the upper deck. From here you can also drive the houseboat from her flybridge and the intercom system makes it easy to talk to anyone down stairs.
