Emmylou

Murray River Paddlesteamer's Emmylou Ships

PS Emmylou, the world’s only wood-fired cruising paddlesteamer reminds us of the romantic days of the paddlesteamers and is now an Australian Icon of the River. Built locally during 1980-82 in the style of the 19th century paddlesteamers, she is perfectly at home at the Port of Echuca, residing with the last few remaining paddlesteamers of the past. She is 30 metres long and 10 metres wide, steel hulled and timber decked. During 2018 PS Emmylou underwent a specially designed luxury upgrade and fit out. The new contemporary cabins and ensuites include fine linens topped with silky duvets, with the boats’ premier cabin, the Emmylou Suite located on the front Upper Deck, with French Doors opening to a deck and 180 degree views of the river. Guests can enjoy small boat boutique cruising at it’s finest with just 16 guests comfortably accommodated in 8 deluxe cabins.
