PV Murray River Queen
« on: October 10, 2009, 08:01:48 AM »
This is a 1970s vessel, built in an Australian vernacular.
I have photos of it cruising at Mildura.
It then spent years at Goolwa as a static b&b.
It was relocated to Waikerie as a b&b, with some cruising (mainly lunch/dinner).  The cruising program was expanded.

See www.paddleducks.co.uk/smf/index.php?topic=2566.60, page 5
with one photo.
This is PV Murray River Queen, based at Waikerie (South Australia).
It has a restaurant, bar and cafe.
Since placing that post, I have sprinkled a few other exterior photos in other posts.
The boat now has a website: www.murrayriverqueen.com.au
It has several photos of the interiorior of the dining room and of the cafe/bar.

In August, it was advertised for sale.  I enclose a pdf of the newspaper advertisement, forwarded to me by member Mike Smith.

PV Murray River Queen has been unable to cruise for a few years now.  It has been used as a fruitpicker dormitory.  There has been talk for a few years of relocating it to Renmark, which is where the pickers are working.  That is happening.  PS Oscar W is voyaging from Goolwa to undertake the tow.  It had reached Bowhill for Tues.8.8 overnight.

I have photos of Murray River Queen at Renmark, but not yet prepared for posting.

Meanwhile, this advertisement has appeared.
