Starboard Crew House (1 of 25).jpg



Having Spent the last 5 years in the Superyacht industry, I have spent a lot of time staying in crew houses in Europe and the USA. 

From some of the nicest places, to some the more questionable ones, I always wished I could start one myself, learning from the mistakes of some and the successes of others and using them in my own place one day.

Having Been Chief Instructor at the largest super yacht training school in Cape Town, and seeing the need that students have for safe, yacht specific housing , not only can I offer yachties a gorgeous place to stay, but also work hand in hand with schools to get the best all rounded crew house experience.

Whether you're a yachtie visiting Cape Town on vacation and are looking for a central, upbeat place to stay, or training to go over for the first time, StarBoard is the home for Yacht Crew in Cape Town.

Daily Housekeeping

We stress that crew getting into the industry learn that nobody is going to clean up after them, so we encourage crew to make their beds and require that they keep common areas as they found them.

There is a full time housekeeper on-site to keep all areas clean, we just require that crew keep it tidy.

We change Linnen and Towels Weekly

Laundry Services Can Be offered at an additional cost, there is a washing machine on site for DIY Crew.

Star board Crew House is a home away from home.. It’s definitely the place to be! 

It’s within walking distance of the water front, the Super Yachting South Africa offices and any requirements are just a few foot steps away...

The house is clean, neat and spacious and well equipped with any kitchen appliance you may require, there is ample fridge space, DSTV, WIFI, Netflix etc. The bunk beds are awesome with the best most comfortable mattress you can imagine. 

The owners Chantelle and Wern are always smiling and ready to assist or lend a hand! They run a World Class setup and I wouldn’t consider staying anywhere else in Cape Town in the future!
