Our Gauteng based operations focuses on Houseboat & Ferry manufacturing. Although most of the boats we have built are currently in use along the Vaal Barrage Reservoir in Vanderbijlpark, our boats are not limited to the Vaal River. Transportation and site establishment on other in land waterways is possible. Houseboats are a fairly new concept in South Africa, our goal is to make this multi-purpose retreat with ever changing scenic views an alternative reality to river/lake property ownership.
