Boatshed South Africa is open for business!

We are very excited to announce we have a NEW Boatshed Office operating in a NEW Continent!

Based in Cape Town, Bruce Stirk and Lisa Malherbe will be at the helm of Boatshed South Africa.

Boatshed South Africa has unfettered access to a range of premium award-winning yachts and power boats which are perfect for the discerning blue water sailor. We are very excited to be able to share these vessels with the rest of the world through Boatshed's worldwide presence.

Additionally, South Africa and more specifically Cape Town, has a long history of designing and building new yachts with a wealth of highly talented and passionate craftsmen all the way through from naval architects to laminators. The level of expertise is plain to see through the attention to detail found on these highly respected new vessels which we are looking forward to offering to the market through our platform.

"South Africa is the second largest Sailing Catamaran manufacturing country in the world, so it made sense to team up with the biggest Boat Brokerage company in the world."

Bruce Stirk, Boatshed South Africa

Bruce has a passion for ocean-based sports. He has taken part in international sailing championships, cruised with his family and thoroughly enjoys the excellent fishing in the waters off Cape Point. On the business front he has more than a decade of experience in owning and managing the premier boat brokerage in South Africa. Through these experiences he can contribute a wealth of knowledge to Boatshed.

Lisa’s background is in industrial manufacturing, blue water sailing and she is currently a part owner of the highly respected Good Hope Sailing School at the Royal Cape Yacht Club where she lectures and instructs budding new sailors. Due to the extreme conditions often prevalent around the Cape of Storms it takes a highly experienced, level-headed person to safely instruct first time sailors. The knowledge, passion and energy she brings to Boatshed is certainly going to further strengthen the Boatshed team.

Bruce and Lisa are overjoyed to be joining the Boatshed team. If you are looking to buy OR sell a boat in South Africa, get in touch with them here.
