About Us

The Hawkesbury River is renowned for house boating as it's a perfect place to enjoy a few days on the water.

Able Hawkesbury River Houseboats has been established at Wiseman's Ferry for over 30 years and is the largest fleet of houseboats for hire on the Hawkesbury.  There are lots of interesting places to see along the way although sometimes it's just as nice floating around on board with your favourite friends or family.

There are now 9 different sizes of houseboats to choose from starting from a smaller basic boat that's a nice way to get out and enjoy the water or the new luxury spa houseboats.  Tthe Five Star Spa and the Ultimate Spa houseboats feature more than what you might expect on board most boats, including a 10 seater heated spa on the roof of the boat, what a way to enjoy the views.

Close enough to Sydney to be popular for a weekend away, there's much more to enjoy if you stay for a week or longer.

We also have smaller day boats or kayaks available for hire for up to 8 hours during the day.

You are always welcome to visit and have a look at the different houseboats that are available. Marina viewing times are between 8.30am and 5pm daily.

All houseboats feature versatile and modern interiors that are fully self contained.
