At 25m, Princess Eve is South Africa’s largest superyacht. This Hazendal yacht is now available for exclusive use charter cruises and private events in the waters around Cape Town.

Luxury on the Atlantic

Step aboard The Hazendal Yacht and experience Cape Town from this unique vantage point. The luxury vessel boasts extensive outdoor deck areas and a rooftop jacuzzi where guests can soak up the panoramic scenery surrounding them. Alternatively, guests can retire to the peace and comfort of the indoor lounge.

The yacht can accommodate up to eight people on overnight cruises and bigger parties on day trips. Three of the spacious cabins are configured with double, queen and bunk beds. The Master Cabin features a king-size bed and large windows to take in the gorgeous 180-degree Atlantic Ocean views. All four of the cabins have ensuite bathrooms with showers while the Master Cabin has its own bathtub.

When chartering the yacht, passengers can choose from a variety of Western Cape itineraries. These include excursions up the West Coast to Langebaan and Saldanha Bay, sunset cruises around Robben Island, trips along the Atlantic Seaboard to Clifton or Hout Bay, and cruises around the Cape Peninsula, passing Simon’s Town and the scenic Cape Point Nature Reserve.

The yacht’s permanent docking station is located at the V&A Waterfront, opposite The Victoria & Alfred Hotel, where guests are treated to epic views of Table Mountain, making it ideal for private functions which can also be held in the harbour waters.

Gastronomic experiences onboard

Passengers can expect a culinary experience suited to the vessel’s upscale nature. Some of the fine dining options that guests can enjoy onboard range from ribeye steak to grilled line fish or gorgonzola gnocchi, among others.

For a more casual dining experience the yacht offers braais on the roof deck. Here you can expect to sample Cajun prawns, lamb cutlets and beef fillets braaied to perfection.  A canapé menu is available for elegant outdoor affairs.

An onboard mixologist whips up a wide array of exotic drinks at the bar including the yacht’s signature Endless Summer cocktail, prepared with Hazendal’s triple distilled premium Vodka.

“The Hazendal Yacht, Princess Eve, both complements and completes our offering of Western Cape experiences. This new experience allows our guests to pair the peaceful beauty of the Cape Winelands with the vibrancy of Cape Town, as experienced from the waters of the Atlantic Ocean,” said Simone Voloshin, director of Hazendal Wine Estate.

“World class wines, fine dining, unsurpassed luxury, and bucket list experiences all form part of the 5-star luxury Hazendal Experience. Yacht passengers can be assured of expecting the same standards of excellence and refined hospitality that they have come to expect when visiting our estate,” added Voloshin.

Sailing into new waters

The Hazendal Yacht, Princess Eve, is the first cruising product to form part of the Newmark Hotels & Reserves portfolio.

“With its azure blue waters, iconic Table Mountain views and white sand beaches, Cape Town has firmly established itself as a sought-after cruising destination since the launch of the city’s cruising terminal. However, despite more than 190 000 big ship cruise passengers docking at Cape Town harbour this year, the region remains largely unexplored as a superyacht destination. We look forward to tapping into this new market with the sublime Hazendal Yacht. This product will showcase Cape Town as one of the most attractive superyacht destinations in the world,” said CEO of Newmark Hotels & Reserves, Neil Markovitz.

“We are very happy to have The Hazendal Yacht as a long-term Superyacht tenant at the V&A Waterfront. To grow facilities for this sector it is our intention to investigate the development of an exclusive Superyacht Hub at the V&A Waterfront. We hope that this project will come to fruition in the near future, commented Executive Manager: Marine & Industrial for the V&A Waterfront, Andre Blaine.
