More notes about the marina

HBYC welcomes visiting yachts, and frequently enjoys visitors from all parts of the globe. Hout Bay is a spectacularly scenic bay, with great facilities, beaches, shops etc. The marina is well serviced, affordable, and safe. It is an excellent stopover whether you are circumnavigating or simply cruising the Cape Coastline. They now also have a state-of-the-art wireless hotspot as well (hosted by RedButton), allowing broadband internet access from the comfort of your boat!

Hout Bay contains many good restaurants and shops, and is an easy 30-minute drive from central Cape Town. The newly-opened Hout Bay boatyard has a new travel-lift capable of lifting large yachts.

HBYC Marina is arguably the nicest marina in the Cape - with great facilities, fantastic scenery, and offers great value. It is a great stopover for cruisers, and a good place to keep a boat. Security is generally very good, and the marina is always a happy place.


The Marina Manager is Peter Godley. Peter keeps a listening watch on VHF CH-71 during office hours which are every day from 9 am to 1 pm except Wednesdays and Sundays. The Marina office phone number is 021 790 7095 and Peter’s cell number is 082 446 9424.
