Quick Walkthrough

With twin sliding glass doors from the lounge room onto the front deck, her lower lounge feels large and open, with two double sofa beds if you need the extra beds.
Gypsea Belle has a fully equipped, spacious kitchen and dining area that leads to the lower back deck.
The downstairs back deck is a great area for fishing! You will also find a duck board for ease of entering and leaving the water and a wash down shower for after your dip in the river.
Downstairs the main bedroom has a queen bed with dual access into the main bathroom. There is also a bunk room with two single beds.

Gypsea Belle is the only houseboat on the river with interior stairs which take you to the upper level – giving you access to the upper bedroom with a queen bed and double trundle beneath, toilet and second living area.

The bi-fold doors open the upper lounge room out onto the back
deck.  A Webber Q on the
upper back deck makes barbequing a pleasure and with the solid roof for cover, a shower of rain won’t
matter at all. The fly bridge controls and entertaining area are situated on the upper front deck meaning the captain is never isolated.
