Lake Macquarie Houseboats

about lake macquarie houseboats

Take a break and enjoy Lake Macquarie!

Lake Macquarie Houseboats was first launched in 2001 on Lake Macquarie in Toronto and has been operating successfully ever since with thousands of happy holiday makers. 

The current owners David and Leigh-Anne Amos have been in the houseboat business since 2008, running Lake Macquarie Luxury Houseboats with Kestrel, a 33 foot 6 berth Vickers; and Scarborough, a 45 foot 10 berth Coher. In September 2015, they purchased Lake Macquarie Houseboats with Sugar Bayb, another 45 foot 10 berth Coher, and amalgamated the two businesses! Further to this, in November 2018, they bought Aquarius, another 45ft boat, and the business of Lake Macquarie Houseboat Hire. Now all three businesses have been amalgamated into one - Lake Macquarie Houseboats.

"Our main goal is giving you, the customer, the best houseboating experience possible" 

This is further enhanced by some important differences -

  • We offer secure parking for your cars so you don't have to worry about them at a public car park.
  • We offer you private moorings to make sure you don't drag anchor overnight, giving you a good night's sleep. 
  • All hires include a tender WITH an outboard at no charge.
  • All bed linen is supplied, with beds made ready, because you're on holidays!

All of the boats are constantly being maintained & upgraded, including new motors, gas hot water, refrigerators, carpets & bedding during 2020 and 2021.

Another renovation was undertaken in 2019, including a new kitchen and bathroom, adding to our Elite boat fleet and a complete refurbishment inside and out of Scarborough in 2021.
