  • Dual driving controls, downstairs and from the upper deck, so the captain is not isolated from any activities
  • Limited 240-volt power, so that during your holiday you can operate small appliances like mobile phone chargers, nebulisers, video camera chargers and games consoles (no hairdryers).

Wanderer is a lovely open planned houseboat. With walk-around decks she is great for fishing and fly bridge controls mean that the captain is not isolated from any activities.

The BBQ is located on the upper deck underneath the solid roof, giving you great protection from the sun and the odd shower of rain but not taking up the whole top deck, still giving you sun baking room. Wanderer is the only houseboat of this size on the river with this great feature.

Wanderer is also our only pet friendly houseboat, so if you have a furry family member that would love to be a part of your holiday you are welcome to bring him/her along. Please note some restrictions and cleaning fees may apply and we wouldn't recommend pets larger than 15kg. For more information please check out our Pets page or give us a call.
