MTU Superyacht engine

Maximising routine maintenance during your Cape Town visit

Cape Town is a prominent boatbuilding hub, equipped with a well-established supply chain comprising high-quality equipment suppliers, retailers, and business services. South African shipyards are proficient in constructing custom and semi-custom yachts, including monohulls, catamarans, powerboats, commercial vessels, sport fishing boats, and award-winning inflatables. Notably, DAMEN and Southern Wind are respected brands in the superyacht sector, with their factories located in Cape Town. The city’s boatbuilding industry is both professional and world-class, providing services for minor maintenance and repair needs.

To ensure a smooth experience, it is recommended that you coordinate with your agent or refer to the servicing companies listed on our website before arriving in Cape Town. They will connect you with the most suitable service provider for your requirements and ensure timely delivery of necessary supplies. For your convenience, three well-regarded chandleries, namely Central Boating, Action Yachting, and Manex, are available, catering to the needs of yacht owners and crew. Additionally, renowned marine electronics brands like Raymarine, Lowrance, and Garmin have local representatives, and accredited service agents for major engine manufacturers such as MTU, MAN, CAT, Volvo Penta, Cummins, Wärtsilä, and Yamaha are also accessible.

During your stay in Cape Town, the V & A Waterfront will serve as your base. Conveniently located in the city center, adjacent to the port and marine hub, it offers easy access for subcontractors and deliveries.

Keep in mind that the main holiday period in Cape Town spans from the middle of December until the second week of January. This time is lively and festive, with warm, sunny days and numerous events. However, it’s essential to note that most boatyards and servicing companies are closed during this period. Therefore, plan accordingly to avoid any inconvenience.

For a comprehensive list of suppliers and services, you can refer to the directory provided by Boating South Africa/ SABBEX. Visit their website for contact details, and if you need further information, feel free to email us. We are happy to assist!
