Runaway Bear is a lovely boat with a great open feel. She is great for a couple, having a permanent double bed and open plan.

There is a double vario bed (converts from a lounge) in the lounge area if you have extra guests to visit, however we do recommend Runaway Bear for two people only (licenced for up to four).

Runaway Bear is the only houseboat in her class on the Tweed River. She can be driven from both upstairs as well as downstairs, with access to the upper deck from the back deck area.

Upstairs you will find a beautiful Baby Webber-Q with roasting hood, perfectly located to enjoy the view whilst cooking. Runaway Bear has the added luxury of the shower and toilet in separate rooms and the electric winch takes the effort out of anchoring.

  • Maximum 4 people, day or night
