Club Marine is always looking for new ways to meet the needs of our clients. We’re excited to present our new products!


Club Marine has just launched the first-ever liability cover available in South Africa - for entities operating and managing slipways and beach launch sites for watercraft. (Inland and Coastal cover). This is good news for clubs and marinas as it provides cover for incidents where you are held legal liability for damages to property as well as injury or loss of life.

Have you ever thought about the impact it could have on your entity should a swimmer or diver be injured during a launch?

The new cover includes:

  • Slipway and launch site operators
  • Operators of lifting / carrying equipment
  • Provision of utilities
  • Provision of weather and boating information
  • Any other service commonly performed by a marina operator

This is a relatively unique South African risk - as vessels are normally only operated from Marinas across the world and not surf launched off the beaches.

Contact us for more information about this exciting new product!

on Friday, 15th July 2022

Introducing Justin Paynter, our new Club Marine Brand Ambassador, who brilliantly represents us wherever he goes.

Also known or identified as “Pink Pants”, Justin is one of the most astute anglers and skippers of our time. When he’s not fishing out of Durban, Umhlanga or Umdloti Ski Boat Club – he’s hard at work as Deputy Principal at Crawford International North Coast.

Justin’s passion for fishing is evident in the amount of time he gives back to the sport. He served on the committee of the Durban Ski Boat Club from 2014 until 2020 (Junior & Lady development and Club Captain). He is currently the development officer for Umhlanga Ski Boat Club, a director on the board at Point Water Sports Club which houses DSBC and DUC and the newly appointed PRO for SADSAA.

He has achieved his Natal and SADSAA Colours for Game fishing, and will hopefully in the next few years, don the Green blazer.

Justin believes in two things, live your life to the fullest and have no regrets.



APRIL 2022

The much-anticipated Umhlanga Festival 2022 - recently held at Umhlanga Skiboat Club, was a huge success with 160 anglers on 85 craft recording great catches.

Jetski angler Jean Deysel– was thrilled to nab “Heaviest Fish” with his a 35.7kg Tuna. He topped the leader board on Day 1 and held his breath until the last fish weighed-in for the weekend.

Janine Morrison took “Top Lady” with her 20.8kg Couta caught off a kayak and Brayden Kane claimed Leading Junior with his 23.3kg Couta.

Team Club Marine was there to cheer them on and congratulate the two lucky draw winners of our CMI cooler boxes.

Thrills, spills and a star in the making were all part of Saturday’s exciting Powerboat Racing at Rynfield Dam!

F1 racers Brett Stuart and Che Parsons each survived a heart-stopping flip but thankfully, both came out unscathed! Michael Wessels went on to take first place overall in the F1 Powerboat Grand Prix.

Club Marine-sponsored Levi Shepard (7) raced his heart out in the eight-strong Junior class - to snatch victory overall, after three thrilling heats. This is one little champion to watch out for in future!

The Yamaha-powered 520 Seacat skiboat is worth R562 000 and has complimentary cover for a year, from Club Marine! To top it all, he backed his own boat for a win and also went home with R10 000 in cash!

Back in the day, women were thought to be bad luck on board because they distracted the crew, which would anger the sea which, in revenge, would create treacherous conditions. More likely, the men couldn’t handle doing their jobs while simultaneously flirting with women.

To stop the problem, a wise skipper played the “bad luck” card because it carried weight among superstitious sailors.

Over the years, several women disguised themselves in men’s clothing and snuck on board anyway - either to follow a lost love or live and work at sea. According to British archivists – some of these women didn’t just successfully disguise themselves; on revealing their true gender, they even received a pension for their maritime services!

These were some of the very nice comments sent to our
