Finally! No longer is it a distant dream. The very best of both worlds has arrived in South Africa!

There is no nicer or lower cost way to spend time than sailing. There are few things in the world that are as quiet, graceful and downright fun. You will find no better way to spend an hour, a weekend or an entire vacation. From the vantage point of a sailboat, the normal cares of the world seem small. A sailboat is versatile. For a couple, put on the music, fill the ice chest and you have romance. It is also a wonderful sport for a family.

Enter the Trailer-able Power Sailer.
You can always make a fast boat go slower by reducing sail, but you can't make a slow boat sail fast. There is no sacred principle that says a great cruising sailboat should be slow, and there is no greater frustration than a comfortable "houseboat" that just doesn't sail.  With certain models able to accept up to a 140hp inboard turbo diesel, you never have to worry about no wind anymore and when the weather turns foul, you can out-run even the most threatening of storms.   Best of all, these boats are equipped like any modern well appointed caravan or motor home anywhere in Europe or South Africa.

The best selection... all under one roof

We are the dealer principal for Africa South of the Sahara, primarily for the affordable trailer-able hybrid sailboat cum powerboat ranges from reputable European and American manufacturers.  These boats come as ready to sail craft, with or without engines and up to 28ft in length.  There are various designs with varying levels of standard trim ex works, plus a plethora of extras, either ex works or as aftermarket fitment.  We would love to discuss your unique requirements.  Contact us today.
