About the Kaiapoi River Queen

The Kaiapoi River Queen was established in Kaiapoi 2019.

River Queen started her life in Marlborough on the Taylor river close to the township of Blenheim where it operated for approximately a decade.

She is a flat bottomed 2 story boat constructed of wood and fibreglass that is powered by 2 carefully hidden outboard motors.

It has been fully refurbished since its arrival in Kaiapoi in October 2018 with paint, upholstery, carpets, new decks, new 115 Honda outboard motors and is ready to serve the Kaiapoi and wider areas.

The Kaiapoi River Queens flat bottom allows her to sail no matter the tide. 

Its permanent berth is just to the Eastern side of the William Street bridge and in front of the Eagle bar on a purpose built floating jetty, that allows easy access for customers.
