Murray River appoints FTM

Murray River appoints FTM

Francis Travel Marketing now represents Murray River Paddlesteamers in New Zealand.

The PS Emmylou, the world’s only wood-fired cruising paddlesteamer, was relaunched late 2018, following a luxury upgrade and fit out. The vessel offers an extended three to four night programme. Murray River Paddlesteamers director, Craig Burgess says small boutique river cruising is a fast growing segment of cruising worldwide. ‘We think Paddlesteamer Emmylou provides a unique way for New Zealanders to experience a river cruise close to home.’ The PS Emmylou travels along the world’s third longest navigable river, to world heritage wetlands, and the world’s largest red gum forest. With nine cabins the boutique steampowered vessel is able to moor alongside river wineries, drop in to local producers, pause to explore heritage sites such as the 1860’s Perricoota Station, and access ancient Murray River tributaries on the MV Kingfisher with an environmental specialist. Onboard dining, prepared by the Emmylou’s chef, features local food and wine from across the Heathcote and Perricoota wine regions. Riverside campfires are offered in the evenings, with stunning night skies to complete the experience.
