The demand was growing for larger groups, pushing for the purchase of a bigger boat. However, the shallow lagoon is a major obstacle to overcome, the reef sitting at only 1m from the surface in places.
No problem there: Jacques orders a custom-made catamaran in South Africa, and does important work himself on the furnishings when it arrives. It will be the first – and only – 17m catamaran sailing the East Coast lagoon’s shallow waters. The boat allows up to thirty passengers to duly celebrate a day out on board.
