Innovation on an even keel


The South African Boatbuilders Export Council, SABBEX, is a national export council.
The council is a major contributor to establishing South Africa as a globally competitive boatbuilding export country, with sustainable export growth within the dti framework.

Through firm adherence to best international boat building practices, South Africa has earned its place as one of the world’s foremost boat building destinations.

From custom and semi-custom built monohulls to catamarans, power boats, commercial vessels, sport fishing boats and award-winning inflatables, the boat of your dreams is a possibility in South Africa. So much so that the second largest catamaran manufacturer in the world now calls South Africa home, producing nearly 30% of the world’s multihulls.

South African boat production has become synonymous with high-quality finishes, timeless style and durability all crafted within predetermined timelines at prices that compare favourably internationally.
