Turn your summer on it’s head this year, instead of booking a holiday on land, why not rent a boat docked at the V&A Waterfront Harbour?

The majestic Jackie O spends her time permanently moored in the calm water alongside the V&A Hotel, and she is looking for holiday-makers to enjoy her splendour.

She is perfectly positioned, her decks enjoy the most magnificent panoramic views, the untouched beauty of Table Mountain, the harbour and the ocean.

Jackie O, houses 4 luxurious en-suite cabins, a dining room, boardroom, spacious lounge and bar, with an upstairs sundeck for dinner and sundowners.

Eight people can stay comfortably in her welcoming cabins, providing comfort, privacy and all the attention to detail you would expect from a luxury yacht.

All cabins are air conditioned, have a TV and free wifi. Guests can enjoy access to the lounge, bar, dining room, gourmet kitchen and sun deck, plus easy access to gourmet breakfasts served at the nearby 5-star V&A Hotel.

Concierge services are available, as well as private water sports for guests. Arrangements can be made for airport transfers on request and a full range of spa treatments.

So what will this stay cost you? Try R20 000 per night for the entire yacht, with individual rooms available from R3750 per night for twin rooms, R4250 per night for the King Suite and R4500 per night for the Presidential Suite.

She is also available to rent for weddings, parties or exclusive functions.
