Pluto is a houseboat that feels like a boat. Mono-hulled with plenty of timber work she has that “boaty” atmosphere.
Pluto can sleep six (6) people, with two double beds and two single beds, however she is ideal for the couple who like a bit of extra room or mum and dad and a couple of kids.
If you would rather not share your special holiday with others this is the perfect boat for a small family or a getaway just for two.
