Misty Blue is a lovely houseboat, small enough not to intimidate the inexperienced and large enough to give plenty of room.
The separate bedrooms also give a degree of privacy not normally found on a vessel this size.
The main bedroom has dual entry, one door into the hallway of the houseboat, the other a glass sliding door leading directly onto the back deck. This gives the feeling of a balcony off the bedroom.
The upper deck is great for relaxing in the sun, or sitting having a drink or meal. With the flybridge controls, you can even enjoy the upper deck whilst cruising the river without isolating your captain.
Great for a family, or a few friends who would like a little privacy.
