Experience Wow Factor in a nutshell

Wow Factor is located at River Glen Marina downstream from Murray Bridge & is exclusively run by the owner/manager thus, you can be assured of A1 service that represents this stylish, luxurious boat. She has an impressive array of features and amenities everyone can enjoy for any occasion or adventure.

Wake up to picturesque views and experience the tranquillity of the River Murray from your bedroom window. All 4 bedrooms feature doors sliding directly onto the balcony deck. The additional sofa beds at the helm and upstairs also have 180 and 360 views, giving you a majestic experience from the first time you open your eyes and begin the day with a Wow Factor feeling! Upstairs access from an internal or external stairway. No matter what the weather or climate you will be toasty warm in winter and cool in summer.

The upstairs lounge opens to the bar/spa balcony deck with an 8-person spa, outdoor dining table, and chairs and kitchenette, and fridge freezer. Enjoy and relax in the very spacious fully enclosed and air-conditioned upstairs lounge area featuring 360-degree views and a toilet/loo with a view. Also features a 55-inch TV, Xbox, hundreds of DVDs (Blu-Ray DVD, downstairs DVD; all bedrooms have DVDs), board games, magazines, books, and extra storage for the whole family.

What makes the Wow Factor “wow”? The Rear Kitchen – this is what makes WOW Factor unique. We challenge you to find another 2-story rear-facing houseboat with rear kitchen and dining decor self-drive. A truly guaranteed Wow Factor experience! Notice the difference of having a rear-facing modern kitchen and dining area at the stern of the boat. When you are pulled up at the cliffs you are always looking at the river. The fantastic river views extend to the rear deck with a BBQ and entertaining area.

Have the freedom to engage your family and guests with water activities like swimming, water skiing, wakeboarding, jet skiing, or kayaking while you bring in some local and delicious produce to cook for your family and guests. Gathering together to celebrate good food and wine has never been this fun and relaxing!
