Runaway Bear

Quick Walkthrough

Runaway Bear is our smallest and one of our more popular vessels.  Licenced for 4 however we do recommend Runaway Bear for a couple. Runaway Bear is the only houseboat in her class on the Tweed River. She can be driven from both upstairs as well as downstairs, with access to the upper deck from the back deck area. 

Featuring a large double bed along with a double vario couch – incase guests would like to spend the night.

Runaway Bear has the added luxury of the shower and toilet in separate rooms and the electric winch takes the effort out of anchoring.

Runaway Bear has a great little kitchenette, featuring a barfridge, stove top and grill.

Upstairs you will find a beautiful Baby Webber-Q with roasting hood, perfectly located to enjoy the view whilst cooking. 

Kick back and relax as you explore all the hidden areas the larger boats can’t quite reach!
