The largest catamaran in Africa?
With a maximum capacity of 60 passengers, NK Charters claims that it's sailing catamaran, Tigresse, is the largest in Africa. On this late afternoon we enviously watched the Tigresse leave the V&A Waterfront with a large group of guests on a sunset campaign-cruise. It would have been nice to have been aboard her, rather than on the old boat that we ended up choosing. :(

If you're not sure what a catamaran is - well, it's quite simple. A catamaran is a boat with more than one hull (generally two hulls). What makes this kind of boat perfect as ferries, or sunset cruises, is that the double-hull design makes this class of boat faster and far more stable than its single-hull sister.
