The V&A Waterfront, facing majestic Table Mountain, offer berths within a protected harbor for yachts of up to 12m (39ft), with two berths available for 35m (115ft) yachts and facilities for 24m (78ft) yachts.
Protective fendering is available for hire, and full facilities for fuel, electricity, water and 24-hour security are on offer. Though the smaller of the Cape Town marinas, the Waterfront is the ideal location from which to explore Cape Town, with a wealth of dining, nightlife and shopping on its doorstep.
Cape Town’s largest home for visiting yachts, the Royal Cape Yacht Club, established in 1905, offers a professional, experienced marina with top facilities, just five minutes’ drive from Cape Town’s myriad attractions and amenities.
There are 425 berths for yachts of up to 18m (59ft) in length, and as well as every facility for mooring and maintenance, an on-site chandlery, 18-ton crane, and slipway with a capacity of 40 tons. The clubhouse overlooks the moorage and has a bar and a restaurant facility for members.
