The Boat

Your home for the next few days can be a 7.8m, sturdy, safe, easy to drive craft to spend a holiday on the water. At your disposal will be a small kitchenette with a camp fridge, small gas stove with oven and a scullery.

A sliding door separates the fore cabin from the main area, providing privacy in the bedroom cabin. In the bedroom cabin is a double bed, as well as a bench that can be used as a child’s bed and storage underneath. The table arrangement in the main cabin folds down to form the second double bed. Please note that the beds are not standard sizes (see diagram below for measurements).

A small separate compartment houses a hot water shower, wash hand basin and Porta Potty (see diagram below for measurements).

A sliding door opens onto an outdoor cockpit area, which is ideal for fishing or just relaxing in the sun. The rooftop deck is ideal for tanning or bird watching.

Hirers may sleep anywhere they choose within the designated overnight limits of the river – simply lower the anchor and make sure it is secured. The Breede River remains one of the most unspoiled holiday getaways in our country and is a must for anyone who enjoys the Outdoors.

The boat is best suited for 2 persons, but it can accommodate 5 persons.

The best way to describe the Houseboats is Caravanning on water. Persons that enjoy fishing, bird watching or simply the outdoors love the boats.  This cannot be compared to Canal boats in the UK or France were you can stop at shops and restaurants along the way. Malgas is a very remote destination – this is what attracts most people to this part of the Breede River.


If you are without Skippers Licence you can do an practical exam on arrival and we can Issue you with a Restricted Interim Certificate of Competence (Temporary Licence for the Houseboats).
