Quintessential Cape Town: Nautic Africa in the heart of the City

The Breakfast Show had the pleasure of visiting the shipbuilding facility of Nautic Africa along Marine Drive Paarden Eiland.

The breakfast Show had the pleasure yesterday of visiting the shipbuilding facility of Nautic Africa along Marine Drive Paarden Eiland.

When driving past on a daily basis, one does not get to see the vessels that are built in those large workshops – the public’s first chance to see them is usually when the traffic flow is halted to allow for them to be transported by road from the facility to the docks.

We got to see how wooden moulds were being made so that fiberglass hulls will one day be cast from them; we saw how 35 metre-long patrol boats and supply vessels were being fashioned out of aluminium – mostly destined to the oil-rich countries up north.

Kieno Kammies chatted to CEO James Fisher about what it is like to have a shipbuilding company in Cape Town's iconic harbour.
