As you all know, we are still unable to operate our vessels with passengers.
In order to ensure that when we hit the road running, all our boats will still be safety compliant and no issues onboard.
Yesterday, Madevu S.A and JamJar were out in the bay for their weekly “spins”
We look forward to having you all onboard soon and know that you cant wait!
Til then, stay safe!
Just a quick heads up to let you all know what is happening.
Recently recreational fishing on boats was allowed again, with the sailing boat fraternity just allowed to reopen.
Unfortunately for us, we are still waiting for word as to when we can resume operations. We are constantly monitoring the situation and as soon as we hear anything, we will be posting all the information on our websites and social media platforms.
Check back often here, facebook and instagram…
Yil then, be safe out there!
Since the easing of restrictions in movement, our team has been hard at work, making use of the time do do much needed maintenance and upgrades.
This week we tackled the heavy job of sanding down all outside surfaces and then applying a fresh lick of paint.
Madevu is really starting to look like an even more beautiful vessel and you will be shocked to see the changes in her since the last time you joined us.
For those of you who will join us soon, you will see why you chose the SEXIEST boat in town!
Check out the pics below and see why Madevu S.A is the boat of choice!
Cya soon! 😀
This last week, our small like cruiser.. JamJar had some TLC done.
After a quick spin in the bay, to make sure his engines are running well after sitting for so long, it was decided to beach him and give his belly bit of a scrub.
Once he was washed down, a good polish was in order…… and we have a shiny new boat.
As is normal practice in the industry, we always have to ensure that our vessels are safety compliant and every week, we ensure they are.
Keep an eye out on our Facebook pages to see when he is ready to treat you to an awesome Harbour cruise again.
On Thursday, this last week, we moved Madevu S.A out into the bay for the first time in 3 months.
As we are constantly ensuring that, even though we are not allowed to operate, we still have a duty to ensure Safety compliance for the vessels.
Our resident skipper decided to take her out for a spin and ensure that all the mechanical parts of the vessel are still working.
Many patrons ordering take aways from the restuarants at Wilsons Wharf, where in aw to see her moving again.

As you all know, the Government regulations regarding the easing of various frames of industry are continuously changing.
Whilst many spheres have be permitted to operate again, unfortunately us in the marine industry as still “locked down”.
We are constantly monitoring the situation and keeping abreast of the Regulations in the Marine scheme of things and as soon as we get notification that we may operate….you will be the first to know.
Remember to follow us on Facebook and catch up on whats happening in our “Gig”
Well as some of you would know, we have a new cruise boat in the process of being constructed.
Whilst he will not be of the same design as our Flagship, Madevu S.A, Project X is going to definitely turn heads upon his arrival in Durban, in the last quater of this year, 2020.
Our builder is hard at work and from the images we have seen so far, this boat will definitely be the “medium sized” cruise boat you will want to be seen on.
As contruction progresses, we will start to share abit more information. But, for now… we want to start getting you alittle bit excited. 😀
Check out the pics below 😀
Til next time… Stay Safe
So as well all know, the Lockdown Levels are starting to change and the country will be heading down to Level 3 on Monday, 1 June 2020.
As we are not yet able to open our doors, we are hard at work in the backround to take steps and ensure compliance with regulations that will be adopted when our tourism sector reopens.
Alot of new Safety Posters and social spacing work will have to go into all this, but its to protect you and ourselves until we finally defeat this virus.
Check back regularly to see what is happening and how we are working to ensure that when we “hit the road” again, it will be even more SAFER and FUN.
Til next time…
Here at Madevu, we pride ourselves with ensuring that we remain compliant interms of the SAMSA Regulations and ensuring that our vessels and crew onboard them on continuously up-to-date with training requirements.
Before lockdown, all our staff got involved in a training exercise to test their skills and to ensure that they always know what to do, should they encounter and emergency situation.
Apart from monthly drills carried out, this drill was of particular importance, as it dealt with rescuing someone from the water and ensuring their safety.
!00% Safety % Knowledge… only at Madevu 😀
As we all know, we have been locked up in our homes to assist the government in curbing the spread of the Corona virus.
As much as this has been a spanner in the works for us here, we take it as an opportunity to carry out much needed maintenance on all our boats.
Downtime doesn’t mean let safety equipment expire.
Since we have received a permit to carry out maintenance, we have been busy carrying out critical work, to ensure everything stays in tip top shape until we are able to start the business up again.
