Once your Cape Town yacht delivery has been done, there are two places where you could choose to dock:
The Royal Cape Yacht Club
is in the south-eastern part of the commercial harbour, just 5 minutes drive from the city and the V&A Waterfront Cape Town. This is a well managed marina with almost all facilities.
The Marina in the "V&A Waterfront Cape Town"
which is the favourite tourist centre on the eastern end of the harbour. Don't forget to call the bridge control to have access at the marina!!!You must use channel 71 in VHF. Otherwise, you can phone V&A Marina Manager (021-408-7835 / 083-543-5711) to get a direct number.
The V&A waterfront
is the place to be when you arrive in Cape Town! You will find a great variety of hotels, restaurants and shops. The best hotel and restaurant I would recommend is
the Cape Grace hotel
and its restaurant, "Signal restaurant", which is right in front of the marina and serves superb food.
There are also other options to dock close to Cape Town such as in Hout Bay harbour- 20min drive which is run by the department of Seafisheries as a yacht marina and an active yacht club. This is a nice place to dock and less expensive than in Cape Town.
For other ports around Cape Town (Simons Town-45min drive, Gordons Bay-1 hour drive, etc.),
inform you on these ports and give you other useful information such as charts, positions of the ports...
LUXURY MOTOR YACHT CHARTER
I have experienced myself a sunset cruise on
and I loved it! A friend of mine booked the entire boat for his birthday.
It's a shippered yacht charter and it took us to Table Bay where we had a glass of Method Cape Classique sparkling wine with pâté on toasts. We ended the cruise with a fantastic braai onboard. This was such an exquisite experience!
If you prefer you can also have luncheon cruise where you'll be able to see the beautiful
by day from the sea.
Another lovely option is the
The Princess Emma
which offers a most exclusive travel experience. It has been built by Princess Yachts in the United Kingdom which has been acquired by LVMH, a French company which has in its stable a number of other exclusive brands including Louis Vuitton, Moet et Chandon and Hennessy.
