Pics from before the intro

The Nutshell prototype is nearing completion. The hulls, deck, bridgedeck and coachroof are from female moulds. Also hatches, transoms, liner, space-frame and ceiling beams.

Looking good.

Charter and rental options

The brochure outlining opportunities in the adventure tourism and hospitality industries is now available. As a business situated near sheltered waters, be it lagoon, river, canal, bay, island or lake consider exploring this option for when travel starts up again. As a private owner, placing your Nutshell in a managed fleet can generate income and significantly reduce the hassle of ownership.

In 2022 we intend to introduce a scheme whereby you can own shares in multiple destinations, or exchange usage with other owners for a more rounded sailing experience.

Imagine this is the view from your apartment bedroom

Now imagine you could take your apartment for a spin

In association with Waterfront Houseboats we are about to catch up with your imagination.

The Waterfront Houseboat company operate funky sleep onboard houseboats in the Cape Grace Marina and the brand new Nutshell 26 can be your home-from-home there.

Welcome Aboard

Welcome to Waterfront House Boats. Situated at the Cape Grace Marina adjacent to the 5 star Cape Grace Hotel, at the very heart of the V & A Waterfront in Cape Town. This unique experience offers you the opportunity of “living on the water” with frolicking seals, fish and bird life to keep you entertained and all that the Waterfront and Cape Town has to offer on your doorstep.

Wake up with the sound of water lapping against the hull. Take an early morning stroll to buy your fresh croissants and eat them on board with a lovely cup of Nespresso coffee while enjoying expansive mountain and city views. With everything in easy and safe walking distance the entire V & A Waterfront is an extraordinary experience.

Eat out an any of the more than 80 restaurants and eateries. Ride bicycles or jog to the Sea Point promenade. Stroll across the swing bridge to the award winning Zeitz Mocca Museum or take a ride on the Cape Wheel. Visit the Watershed and OZCF markets selling produce, clothing, accessories and jewellery all of which is locally produced.

Or chat to us about our exclusive offerings such as a tour through the canals, a private dinner while moored off Quay 4 or even a trip to Granger Bay to enjoy the festival atmosphere created by The Grand.

Certainly a unique experience not to be missed.
