Custom Pontoon Charter Boat
Unfortunately the vessel is now on the market for the first time in over 20 years as part of a deceased estate. Owner is now looking for an enthusiastic buyer to continue enjoying the monopoly this unique business enjoys.
This purpose built houseboat style party boat has been operating successfully for the past 20 years on Lake Burley Griffin and is one of only two boats permitted to work on the Lake.
Carrying up to 45 people, this easily run business is managed by an operator and a deck hand. There is an endless list of equipment on board which includes a number of large screen TV's on both floors, surround sound equipment including karaoke machine, 2 BBQ', a Pizza Oven, a deep fryer, double slushy machine, party lights and the list goes on. The large servery runs the width of the boat and in front of the helm making buffet service a breeze. Anyone who has been on board this Canberra icon remembers her well and has fond memories of parties aboard her.
For the comfort of passengers the bottom level can be enclosed for warmth. The windows clip to the ceiling out of the way of guests when opened. For additional entertainment there is a dance pole on the lower level for those inclined to do their thing.
The boat has previously offered boat hire for up to 3.5 hours and as this is a relatively small lake the Volvo Penta 225HP engine operate at idle for most of the cruise which allows those aboard ample time to take on the sights of the Lake. Tours can be operated each day, two to three times a day if necessary and there is ample time to start taking bookings now for Christmas Parties and evening cruises as the weather starts to warm up.
To operate the craft you only require a coxswain ticket and a deck hand.
