This is by far the sexiest of all sailing rentals in Cape Town – the newest, slickest sailing vessel in the city, this custom-built catamaran features cocktail seating and a bar serviced by a cool crew of genuine sailors and reaches up to 26 knots under sail. With four trips each day (conditions allowing), each lasting 90 minutes, you can choose between the (R130) daytime cruise, the (R150) early evening ‘Happy Hour’ cruise, or the (R200) recommended Sunset Cruise, with complimentary sparkling wine. Or charter the entire boat for R4,100 per hour. If you prefer to be aboard something a great deal faster, then opt for cruise aboard the Adventurer, a state-of-the-art wave-piercing trimaran which was originally custom-built for a trip around the world and holds the record for the fastest circumnavigation (round-the-world in 74 days). A two-hour daytime cruise costs R250; sunset costs R300.
