Leading South African sail and power vessel importers, Boating World will be showcasing two vessels from the well know French sailing and power vessel manufacturers, Fountaine Pajot and Jeanneau. These yacht brands are the most  recent agencies to have joined Boating World's world class quality list of yacht manufacturers being imported to Africa.

2015 Marks the first year for Boating World to exhibit sailing vessels that are imported with Boating World.  Having become Africa’s agents for both Fontaine Pajot and Jenneau it was both logical and appropriate to feature gorgeous craft from these world renowned boat yards.

When Durban’s peaceful marina turns turtle and hundreds of excited boaters and showgoers descend for a boat show feast – you’re in for a surprise!

Make sure you get down to the Durban International Boat Show in July to view the stunning craftsmanship of these sailing yachts and to enquire on their latest options available to suit your needs. In addition to the popular Riviera 37 fishing machine on display, you’ll find a Fontaine Pajot Salina 48 and a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 379 in the mix.

These luxurious craft will take pride of place on Boating World’s eye-catching stand on the water - which will be clearly visible among the majestic sailing yachts, Sport Fishers, cruisers and other boats lining the jetties.

As always, Derrick Levy and his qualified sales team will be more than ready to welcome you aboard for personal viewing of the exhibits on show. In keeping with their commendable company ethos and after years of presenting gorgeous craft countrywide and expanding globally - Boating World is truly a well-honed, professional machine! It shows in every way – from the way each event is planned right down to the finest detail, to the beautifully presented products on show and the vast range of luxury products available at their fingertips.

The company’s incredible success, even in difficult economic times worldwide, is borne out of sheer hard work and determination to be the best in every situation.

There’s nothing casual about the manner in which Boating World attends to each boat under their radar or those interested in them. Whether on the road at national shows, selling internationally or back in their head office in Cape Town, personal attention is paramount.

Hundreds of owners along South Africa’s East and West Coasts, at popular marina’s up country and further north into Africa can testify to hours of attention and how they were matched with the boats of their dreams. And the vision is growing!

For power lovers - the luxurious Riviera 37 Sport Fisher is fully kitted out for fishing success – sporting powerful twin diesel Volvo 370hp motors to get to where the “big ones” hang out.  Seasoned anglers will appreciate her spacious comfort, spectacular flybridge views and umpteen practical fishing features all playing a vital role in their success.

Several anglers can bait up together and attend to a large number of rods in the huge cockpit even with the fighting chair in place. From outriggers to sophisticated electronic equipment - everything works to make dreams a reality!   

Take a close look at the Fountaine Pajot Salina 48 – this beautiful catamaran totally delivers on space, safety, and performance.  Her streamlined design is conducive to easy movement with loads of room throughout. She boasts great accommodation, a fully-equipped galley and comfortable seating for at least eight guests. Perfect for cruising at sea – even in harsh conditions she’s capable of being away from land for long periods of time.  

Of course you can’t miss a peak at the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 379 alongside.

Bearing the unmistakable stamp of designer Marc Lombard – it’s clearly evident that special attention was given to the ease of sail handling, the ergonomics and the modern aesthetics.

This monohull sailing yacht is an impressive performance cruiser with speed, stability and impressive safety features. No wonder she was chosen as Cruising World’s 2012 Boat of the Year!

Bring the whole family along – they’ll enjoy wandering through the giant marquees filled with the latest electronics, accessories and watertoys or strolling along in the sunshine, enjoying the sights, refreshments and cheerful music.

You’ll be free to concentrate on what’s on the water and your next investment!
