Cape Town Harbour

Cape Town Harbour

Marina in Roggebaai
The Port of Cape Town is the port of the city of Cape Town, South Africa. It is situated in Table Bay. Because of its position along one of the world's busiest trade routes, it is one of the busiest ports in South Africa, handling the largest amount of fresh fruit and second only to Durban as a container port. Cape Town, as the ‘Tavern of the Seas’ caters for general cargo on a common user basis, is handling an increasing number of containers and has become an important repair facility, especially for the west coast oil and diamond mining industries. There are 34 berths in total including layby berths. The port boasts extensive ship repair facilities. The main dry dock, known as Sturrock Dry Dock has an overall docking capability of 369.6m length and is 45.1m width at the entrance top with a depth of 14m. The dock may be divided into two sections of varying lengths although the dividing inner caisson was in March 2017 requiring repair and therefore unavailable. The Robinson Dry Dock in the Victoria Basin measures 161.2m in length with an entrance top of 20.7m and a depth of 7.9m. The port also has a synchro lift capable of handling ships up to 61m in length, 15m beam and 1,806 tonnes, and a repair quay in the Duncan Dock. Berth A near the harbour entrance is given over to ship repair by private enterprise. The adjacent Victoria and Alfred Basins have a variety of berths available for ship and boat repair as well as berthing of smaller vessels, including research vessels and visiting naval ships. Cape Town has two main terminals, or business units for cargo handling purposes. The Container Terminal contains six deep-sea berths. They are served by a fleet of post-panamax gantry cranes for the larger container ships now in service. The Multi-Purpose Terminal in Duncan Dock handles fruit, steel, paper, maize, wheat, rice, timber, coal, scrap and other general cargo, as well as passenger cruise ships. The grain elevator has storage for 28,000 cubic metres. Duncan Dock also has a dedicated cold store for fish products with docking space for up to six vessels and the ability to discharge three simultaneously. The port has good rail and road connections inland to other centres. Cape Town has several bunkering points within the port supplying marine fuel oil, gas oil and blends and the port is serviced by a bunker barge. A full range of ship handling and stevedoring is available. The port, which is close to the central business district, houses a yacht club, marina, and an NSRI sea rescue base.

Knysna Yacht Club

Knysna Yacht Club

Marina in Eden District Municipality
KYC History Knysna Yacht Club is situated in the centre of the beautiful Garden Route - midway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. The club is internationally renowned for its hospitality and facilities. Visiting yachts are always welcome. The name Knysna is a Khoi word that has been translated to mean "place of wood", "fern leaves" and "straight down" an obvious reference to the famous Knysna Heads. The Heads must be one of the most eye-catching geological features along the southern African coastline. They flank a deep channel through which the sea pours, flooding the wide lagoon at the mouth of the Knysna River. The first bay reached inside the Heads was named Featherbed by the old sailing masters as a reference to its calmness compared to the Southern Indian Ocean just outside. Sailors passing through the Heads have a safe navigable lagoon in which to moor their yachts while visiting Knysna and the surrounding region. The lagoon is a playground for holiday makers where one can enjoy water sports, sailing, sunset cruises and lagoon fishing. Founded in 1910, Knysna Yacht Club has all the facilities a visiting yacht requires. This is probably the only harbour on the South African coast that is in easy walking distance of Supermarkets and boat chandlers. The club provide haul-out facilities for vessels of up to 12 tonnes with skilled servicing by SAS/SAMSA qualified personnel. We provide shower and ablution facilities for visitors. The club has an excellent restaurant and two well stocked bars.
