MV Proud Mary is a purpose-built boutique cruising vessel providing an intimate and friendly atmosphere and offering a true insight into South Australia’s bushland and our most famous river, the mighty Murray.

Departing from Murray Bridge, just one hour out of Adelaide, the Proud Mary caters for a maximum of just 40 passengers and provides the ideal environment for passengers to explore, experience, indulge and discover all the River has to offer.

The well appointed bar, lounge and dining areas provide the prefect location for indulging in the culinary delights of our resident chefs, while viewing the passing scenery.

The vessel, designed by Naval Architect Mr Peter James, was built in 1982 on the banks of the Murray River in Berri, South Australia, by the Berri Ship building company. It was purposely built with a shallow draft, allowing the vessel to safely navigate shallow sections of the river. The style of the vessel evokes the Mississippi river cruisers.

MV Proud Mary was refurbished under its current owners. The vessel produces its own power from onboard generators and wastewater is stored onboard then removed when in port in accordance with environmental guidelines.

The Proud Mary has 3 deck levels namely the River Deck, View Deck & Sun Deck. It boasts 18 spacious river-view cabins, each with a twin or double bed configuration.

The Proud Mary ensures your safety while cruising by providing lifejackets in all the cabins and placing life buoys on all decks around the vessel.

You can order a drink and venture out onto the Proud Mary’s spacious open decks or enjoy the intimate lounge and dining areas. The Captain’s commentary may spark an interest to peruse the vessel’s resource centre and learn more from one of the many books available on board.

Tea & coffee making facilities are also available in the dining area so our passengers can enjoy a cuppa while browsing through the souvenirs available for purchase.

Bikes and canoes are available free of charge to enable our passengers to explore at their leisure any spectacular mooring locations or to discover the backwaters. For those who like a spot of fishing, reels and baits are also available.

The Wheelhouse is open to all passengers to visit at any time. You can see first-hand how the boat is run, ask questions of the Captain and even take the wheel yourself if you’d like to.
