WHAT WE DO
The South African Boatbuilders Export Council, SABBEX, and Boating South Africa, BSA, is a national export council linking companies across South Africa to represent and grow our boating industry.
The council is a major contributor to establishing South Africa as a globally competitive boatbuilding export country, with sustainable export growth within the dti framework.
SABBEX/BSA through firm adherence to international boat building standards, South Africa has earned its place as one of the world’s foremost boat building destinations.
Backed by an extensive supply chain of high quality equipment suppliers, retailers and business services, South African boat production has become synonymous with high-quality finishes, timeless style and durability at prices that compare favourably internationally. From custom and semi-custom built monohulls to catamarans, power boats, commercial vessels, sport fishing boats and award-winning inflatables, the boat of your dreams is a possibility in South Africa.
