The process of the sun saying goodnight and retreating to its underground bunker in the sky, triggers “ooh’s”, “aaah’s” and “sunsets always make me think of llamas” from its spectators. Sunsets are truly beautiful; watch it in style with today’s Groupon: a sunset cruise on the Tigresse Sailing Catamaran including a glass of sparkling wine with Yacoob Yachts for R99.
Yacoob Yachts, founded in 1997 by Esa Yacoob provides daily and sunset cruises with all facilities on board including a cash bar, music, restrooms etc. Your trip on the Tigresse Sailing Catamaran also includes a glass of sparkling wine. With todays’ Groupon you can go it alone, or buy two Groupons or more and take a fellow sea-lover or romantic date along on this sunset cruise. The Tigresse was designed by A. Simonas as a charter yacht for a maximum of 60 passengers. Built in Cape Town, construction material consists of polyester resin fiberglass with a balsa wood core and laminated marine plywood bulkheads.
For the more technically inclined: the Tigresse is 27.5T and her net is 19.87T with an overall length of 17.65m. The beam is 9.2m with a depth of keel of 1.5m. The Tigresse is powered by 2*50 hp/mo Volvo Penta motors with a 2:1 ratio mechanical gearbox and straight pr. shafts. For everyone else: she is a beautiful big Catamaran dream and not grabbing this Groupon would be a sailing sin equitable to wearing stripes with dots or using a two-bit power tool to fix a broken oboe.
The competent and qualified crew on the Tigresse consists of a skipper, two deck hands and when required a hostess or barman who handles the drinks and catering for guests. There is also a dancing racoon named Eduardo who can read your fortune by peering into his tambourine - OK that isn’t true but it would be an interesting and lucrative idea for any racoons reading this.
To put your mind at ease, the Tigresse is fully fitted with various safety equipment including a life raft, life jackets and 2-way radios. The Waterfront and the maritime authorities’ safety standards, commonly known as the compulsory SAMSA regulations, are strictly adhered to. No re-enactments of Jack and Rose saying goodbye will be done here and no icebergs will be ominously floating around either.
Your sunset cruise will last approximately 90 minutes and you may bring your own snacks on board to accompany your Groupon glass of sparkling wine. Unfortunately no extra drinks are allowed as there is a cash bar available. With Yacoob Yachts you and your fellow Groupon groupie or groupies will experience a sunset like no other, right in the heart of the ocean.
Cruise fact: A workaholic panda bear decided to treat himself to a relaxing cruise in the local harbour. Unfortunately for the panda, the yachts used were first made in 10 000 BC when dragons and unicorns roamed the land and the yacht couldn’t even make it off the shore. The panda decided to rather go back to work instead.
