Exporter Profile – TAG Yachts

TAG YACHTS is situated in the unique and picturesque village of St Francis Bay on the coast of the Eastern Cape, which boasts its own port, ideal for visiting sail yachts and boats.

TAG yachts was established in March 2007 by like-minded people with a passion for sailing and building high performance cruising catamarans. TAG Yachts was established as a forward thinking company, focused on developing the next generation of cruising catamaran. They have brought onboard top catamaran designers and put together a team of professionals with complimentary talents to take TAG Yachts into the future.

New technology and techniques have been incorporated into all their catamarans to aim towards a sporty look with emphasis on functionality and efficiency. TAG Yachts are currently building the TAG 60 catamaran which has been designed to be the ultimate world cruiser. For genuine world cruising ability, her size is neither too small nor too large. This catamaran can be sailed shorthanded, maintained without a full time crew and yet be large enough for seriously comfortable and realistic living while sailing. The first TAG 60 is nearing the finishing stages. The final paint will be sprayed shortly, systems and furniture installation is taking place. The anticipated launch is April 2010.

The TAG culture is about working hard but still having fun enjoying all that St Francis Bayhas to offer. They have a young, enthusiastic team led by experienced and skilled craftsmen. TAG Yachts are continuously striving towards uplifting their staff by developing their technical and life skills through various training programs and providing employment and career opportunities in the yachting industry to their local St Francis Bay community.

The plan is to grow TAG Yachts into a world class boatyard equal to the industries benchmarks in France and New Zealand, thereby growing the marine industry in the St Francis Bay area to become the boat building mecca of Africa. In order to support this, TAG Yachts will be establishing a boat building academy with an approved and recognised curriculum as well as opportunities for new boat and catamaran related businesses in the St Francis Bay area. Furthermore, TAG support sports development in terms of sailing and other water related sports in their community.
