Yacoob Yachts Overview

Nonkululeko Charters, meaning Freedom Charters, established in 1995 a year after South Africa's first democratic election. Now trading as Yacoob Yachts, it is one of the first and only black owned charter businesses trading in the heart of South Africa's top tourist destination, the V&A Waterfront. We provide the ultimate sailing and cruising experience. A cruise on one of our vessels, taking in Cape Town's breath taking coastline, is a must do activity! We pride ourselves on offering vessels that meet international standards, serviced by highly qualified and friendly crew.

Yacoob Yachts presently operates a fleet of charter boats from Quay 5 in the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town.

Our complement of charter boats include:

Our two sleek and sedate catamarans, the Tigresse and Ameera, are ideally suited to romantic sunset cruises accompanied by local sparkling wines taking in views of our beautiful coastline.

The Jolly Roger, the only pirate boat in South Africa offers the young at heart an authentic adventure filled experience and is particularly popular as a party boat for themed year-end functions, bachelor and bachelorettes and for families with young children. We have 20 years experience and our boats are maintained to meet exacting standards set by the South African Maritime Authority. On board facilities include a cash bar, restrooms, blankets for chillier evenings and pull down covers in the event of inclement weather.

We operate throughout the year offering daily scheduled cruises of up to 90 minutes, including the popular sunset cruise which is accompanied by complimentary local sparkling wine on our catamarans and rum punch on the Jolly Roger. We offer customised rates for group bookings with special rates for low season trading periods and film shoots. For those who want to make use of our vessels exclusively we are able to tailor make packages that include catering and a full bar and the proximity of more than 70 restaurants in the Waterfront means that dinner cruise packages are very popular.

A cruise on one of our vessels, taking in Cape Town's breath taking coastline, viewing a myriad of marine life including whales and dolphins in season, the opportunity to take photographs of Cape Town's icon from a different perspective and a stopover at the world famous Clifton beach makes this an essential addition to any itinerary when visiting Cape Town.
