Blue Bayou

Quick Walkthrough

The main bedroom has an island bed and dual entry, one door into the hallway of the houseboat, the other a glass sliding door leading directly onto the back deck. This gives the feeling of a balcony off the bedroom!
Blue Bayou also has a large bathroom with a separate toilet and shower.
The kitchen is fully equipped with 4-burner gas stove, oven and grill, 220 litre fridge/freezer…. and even a microwave.
The upstairs deck is accessed via a staircase at the rear of the boat. The large BBQ and sink with hot and cold running water makes entertaining a breeze!
Like Kalinda, Blue Bayou has a solid roof over the front half of the upper deck. There is also protective vinyl clear surrounds. This means, when the weather is inclement or cool, you can simply zip up the clears and enclose the outdoor dining area.

Don’t forget! With flybridge controls, your captain can cruise the river without feeling isolated from the group.

Feel like a nap? Or just want to laze around? With plenty of room for sun-baking or relaxing in the shade, Blue Bayou is the perfect boat to drift away from your worries!
