“We just got off the Boatel. It was absolutely fantastic. Beautiful decor and the kitchen had everything anyone would ever need in it. The bathrooms and bedrooms were spacious and lovely and clean and the bed very comfortable. There isn’t one thing lacking on this boat. Huge BBQ which we used every day. Highly recommend having a trip on the Murray River on the Boatel. Thank you.”

“My husband an I with a group of friends spent a long weekend on Boatel in September 2019. It was amazing! A 5 star hotel on the Murray River! Bedrooms and ensuites are extremely well appointed, kitchen had all you could ask for! Yigal’s 5 star lunch was beautiful. Stunning weather, stunning location and very stunning boat. So much so, my husband is going to book Boatel for his annual golf trip with the boys.”
