The Magic Fleet

Coquette

12 Pax
Classic & Classy

Explore Knysna in our 104-year-old Thames River Launch which we imported from London to its Knysna home in 2019. This traditional Thames River Launch is built from solid mahogany and designed to seat up to twelve passengers in absolute comfort. It has an open and covered area for you to enjoy the sun or sit in the shade. Relax, enjoy the view, the super smooth ride, and share the experience with your friends and family. Built in 1919, Coquette, meaning flirty, is an antique and the oldest operating vessel in Africa. Explore the lagoon, see the Knysna Heads up close and personal, all the while sipping on chilled bubbly or a selection of Knysna gin while the scenery slides by.
A historical experience.
